Mallory Safety acquires RJ Safety Supply
Mallory Safety and Supply has acquired the assets of RJ Safety Supply Co. of San Diego.
"Mallory is honestly the perfect fit for our employees and customers. It is a relief and joy to join such a good company with such excellent people," said Tifani Swink, president of RJ Safety. "They have greatly expanded our product lines and technical safety service offerings, have given us a world class vending solution with Snapvend, and have breathed new life and energy into our business with their ability to serve even the largest of customers with complex supply chain solutions. We think the Southern California market is screaming for a full service safety distributor like Mallory and are confident we are going to enjoy great success on the Mallory Team.”
Tim Loy, president of Mallory, added, "San Diego is a great place to do business—and especially nice to visit during our rainy months in the Pacific Northwest, with several customer types that we are well positioned to assist with, from construction, to manufacturing, to government and energy. The RJ Safety team has exactly the passion and experience that we look for in an acquisition. We needed talent to expand our Southern California presence; I think the RJ team needed a broader product and service offering, a vending solution, and the benefits of a little more scale, and I’m glad we found each other.”
The acquisition is Mallory’s 14th acquisition in the last 11 years.
Mallory currently has approximately 265 employees and 15 locations in Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Nevada and Wisconsin. While Mallory focuses on safety products and services, it has acquired several industrial and MRO supply distributors, and carries a broad array of abrasives, cutting tools, and construction supplies, so that it can meet the twin objectives of its customers—true safety expertise for the safety department, and vendor consolidation and supply chain efficiency for the procurement side of their business.
RJ Safety has locations in both San Diego and Brawley, California, and is immediately operating as Mallory Safety and Supply.
