Evergreen Advisors Capital, a middle-market investment bank, is pleased to announce that Tactical & Survival Specialties, Inc. (“TSSi”) has been acquired by Noble Sales Co. Inc. d/b/a Noble Supply & Logistics (“Noble”). Evergreen Advisors Capital acted as the exclusive financial advisor to TSSi with legal advice provided by Flora Pettit PC.
Noble, an industry leader in Global Supply Chain Management, Logistics, DoD Mission Support, and Technology, acquired TSSi, a decades-long provider of Special Operations Equipment (SOE). The acquisition brings a specialized supply chain, an experienced team, and tailored logistics solutions to Noble’s growing SOE support to Military and other Government customers.
“I am thrilled to join forces with TSSi and expand our product offering to our customers,” said Tom Noble, Co-Founder, and CEO of Noble. “This acquisition brings together two companies that are razor-focused on ensuring that our warfighters and government customers have the supplies, gear, and equipment they need to complete their missions. Both companies complement each other extremely well, and we are looking forward to working together to add value to the DOD supply chain.”
The Noble-TSSi partnership expands the companies’ capabilities in meeting customers’ requirements for competitive pricing on a broad range of SOE equipment, dedicated customer service, and product expertise, along with established vendor relationships and agreements to serve Military and Government customers better.
Since 2003, Noble has worked with Military and Government customers to find better products, prices, transportation, and services at worldwide locations. This new partnership with TSSi means known team members with expanded product, transportation, and technology solutions.
“No question that Noble is the right home for TSSi,” said Bill Strang, TSSi’s Founder and CEO. “After more than 40 years of supporting those who serve and defend this country, it is important that our mission continue to grow and provide our customers with the best operational support equipment and services available. This partnership will provide our customers with more choices, better prices, and consistently reliable delivery.”
