Private equity firm Falfurrias Capital Partners has purchased a controlling stake in Green Distribution, a specialist in the manufacturing and distribution of heat transfers and screen printed custom apparel.
Founded in 2009, Green offers printing, distribution, and art content management services for more than 4,000 customers. Using its proprietary front-end web platform, Green facilitates easy customisation and rapid turnaround times for consumers of heat transfers and screen printed apparel.
“Green Distribution has flourished in today’s apparel market, which values customisation and quick turnaround times,” says Managing Partner Marc D Oken. “We are pleased to partner with its creative management team to capitalize on the many growth opportunities that lay ahead.”
Green Distribution CEO Robert Butters has been instrumental in leading the company through organic and acquisition-based growth and will continue to maintain his leadership role both as CEO of the company and as a significant equity holder in the company going forward.
“I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with the Falfurrias team,” says Butters. “The landscape of the apparel industry has shifted toward customised solutions for personalised apparel and promotional items, and Green has responded by investing heavily in technology and developing a unique solution for customers requiring fast turn manufacturing. With the Falfurrias partnership, Green has the opportunity to become a leader in the industry."
