Boca Raton, FL-based investment firm Sun Capital Partners announced today that its Life Uniform Co. affiliate has acquired competing cataloger/retailer Uniform City Corps. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Craig Linn will remain CEO of Tampa, FL-based Uniform City.
Sun Capital had purchased cataloger/retailer Life Uniform from Angelica Corp. in July 2004. Life Uniform, like Uniform City, sells scrubs and uniforms to healthcare professionals via stores, catalogs, and the Internet.
M. Steven Liff, managing director for Sun Capital Partners, said in a statement, “The Uniform City acquisition is an excellent fit for Life Uniform, allowing Life to become not only a leading retailer of scrub wear and complementary products, but a leader in the catalog segment as well.”
