Trimco Group has acquired Zabin Group, a leading supplier of design and branding products based in Los Angeles, with offices in Hong Kong, India, and Bangladesh.
For nearly 50 years, Zabin Group has established itself as a leading supplier of design and branding solutions to apparel and consumer brands. The acquisition will allow the combined business to better serve local customers by leveraging Trimco Group’s global production footprint and innovative digital solutions focused on supply chain and sustainability, including the market-leading traceability platform Product DNA®. Zabin Group’s management team will be retained and continue to deliver best-in-class services to local clients with support from Trimco Group’s global network and resources.
“This is another exciting milestone for Trimco Group following our acquisition of Wah Lung Labels earlier this year. We look forward to partnering with the Zabin Group team to offer enhanced products and services to our local customers,” said Amy Wan, CEO of Trimco Group. “Many of the world’s largest and leading brands trust Trimco Group as their supply chain partners, and we see immense growth opportunity for us in North America, where we remain underpenetrated. The partnership with Zabin Group will help us accelerate our expansion and demonstrate our world-leading offerings to more U.S. customers.”
“The Zabin Group has a long history and strong reputation in the U.S. market led by a strong management team, which fits ideally into what we are looking for. There is immense potential for both businesses to create value for all stakeholders. We will support the combined team to pursue further organic and inorganic growth opportunities and ensure continued excellence for our existing customers”, said Alex Yang, Managing Director for Brookfield Private Equity and the Chairman of the board of Trimco Group.
“We are both excited and pleased that the Zabin Group is now officially a part of Trimco Group. This gives us sustainability to carry on what we have built over the years under the leadership of one of the most skilled, successful, and experienced leaders of brand identity products in the world,” said Alan Faiola, CEO of Zabin Group.
