RefrigiWear, a Georgia, US-based supplier of insulated work apparel for the cold chain, has announced its acquisition of Samco Freezerwear Co (Samco). Founded in 1968, Samco is a leading provider of freezerwear, insulated industrial workwear, and other insulated industrial apparel and accessories for workers in the food-related cold chain.

RefrigiWear and Samco will continue to operate under separate brand names with diverse product offerings for customers both small and large, RefrigiWear said in a statement.

"We are excited to welcome Samco to the RefrigiWear family. This acquisition will help us serve our customers with a broader range of choices," explained Ryan Silberman, CEO at RefrigiWear. "For us, it's all about the customer and gaining capabilities to serve the ever-changing and demanding environments they face in the cold chain. This acquisition is a strong statement of our continued support of the workers and companies that help bring food to our kitchen tables."

Both companies offer a selection of products that keep workers warm and safe in temperature-controlled distribution and production facilities, which can sometimes operate in temperatures well-below freezing.
