Thread and components supplier Alliance Thread & Supply Inc. has been purchased by Komar USA, a supplier to the sewn products industry based in Elk Grove, Ill.
Alliance, headquartered in Warminster, Pa., is now known as Komar Alliance and is a division of Komar USA, said Alan Sheinberg, Komar Alliance senior vice president.
Sheinberg previously was the owner and president of Alliance Thread. He said his former staff and supply network remain intact, with warehouses in Los Angeles, Chicago, metro Philadelphia and Dallas. The purchase will give Komar Alliance more prominent representation on the East Coast, Sheinberg said.
“Our customers can now expect a wider product line and better service,” he said. “Our parent company has tremendous computer facilities and warehousing facilities. For that reason, we have expanded our potential. We have a better ability to buy better and to service our customers better.”
