Mallory Safety acquires Wise Safety

Mallory Safety and Supply has acquired Wise Safety & Environmental, a St. Louis-based distributor of safety supplies and abatement products and services.

As a result of the acquisition, Mallory will have 30 locations across the country with the addition of eight Wise Safety full service and warehouse locations in Boston; Buffalo, New York; Louisville, Kentucky; St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri; Little Rock, Arkansas; Houston; and Jacksonville, Florida. Also, with the acquisition, Mallory expanded its existing operations in Denver and Salt Lake City.

“Wise Safety is one of the most recognized, customer-focused safety operations in the country. Their high-value delivery fits squarely into our Mallory model. This expansion will now provide customers with rapid turnaround of their necessary safety and supply chain needs. As a result, the Mallory Team will be able to increase service and, in most cases, support and deliver 24-hour turnaround on safety supplies to all areas of the contiguous USA,” said Tim Loy, Mallory president.

Over the last 16 years, Portland-based Mallory has completed more than 20 acquisitions. The Wise Safety integration is the largest to date, giving Mallory a national footprint and the ability to directly service large operations. Mallory now employs nearly 500 people, and carries more than $30 million of inventory from over 2,000 vendors.

“Wise customers will appreciate our deep vending expertise, our enhanced service offering and broader product lines that extend into general MRO and industrial solutions. Most importantly, our new Wise customers will also benefit from Mallory’s focused and resourceful approach to delivering safety expertise and a full range of solutions, in a time where everyone is concerned about safety,” said Loy.
