Wildman announced a recent acquisition of Porters to further expand their service offerings in the Griffith, Valparaiso and Merrillville areas.
Porters was looking for a partner that shared their values as a family-owned and locally operated organization and also provided a high-quality level of service and commitment to both customers and employees, according to a news release from Wildman. Wildman was the best fit for this opportunity.
Wildman began providing service to Porters’ customers on March 14. The company currently operates out of Warsaw, with depot locations in South Bend, Fort Wayne and Indianapolis.
For current customers of Porters, their business service will continue without disruption, the release states. The Wildman team looks forward to meeting them and learning how they can best serve them now and in the future.
The acquisition allows Wildman’s teams to further partner together to offer a more robust first aid, safety, clean team and apparel products to remain a centralized location for business essentials.
Wildman will be taking on several team members from Porters’ current team in order to continue to best serve customers. For the customers, this means continued quality service from a familiar face. Both Porters and Wildman employees have been working tirelessly to make the transition as smooth as possible, the release states.
“The Porters acquisition will allow our teams to partner together to continue providing quality and personalized service to customers in northern Indiana and beyond,” said Josh Wildman, CEO of Wildman. “Being in the business for 70 years, we are excited to continue expanding the strong foundation and service built by Porters and grateful for this opportunity.”
Based in Warsaw, Wildman is northern Indiana’s only family-owned and locally-operated commercial laundry. Through their family of companies includes Uniform & Linen, Facility Services and Winona Services and has locations in South Bend, Fort Wayne and Indianapolis.
