12 ReTech Completes Acquisition of Red Wire Group, LLC, Bolstering FY2019 First Quarter Revenues.
Las Vegas, NV & Hong Kong, Feb. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 12 ReTech Corporation (OTC: RETC) announced today that it had completed the planned acquisition of Salt Lake City’s apparel manufacturer, Red Wire Group, LLC.
Red Wire is a profitable and efficient “Cut and Sew” manufacturer that will greatly benefit from the excess capacity of 12 ReTech’s Emotion Fashion Group facility located less than 100 yards away.
Angelo Ponzetta, 12 ReTech’s CEO stated, “We are pleased to add the Red Wire team to our own operations. Their activities which in FY2018 generated approximately $650K in revenues immediately bolster our revenues and cash flow. On the other hand, the acquisition allows Red Wire to more than double its manufacturing capacity.”
Angelo Ponzetta continued, “In the short time that we have been working with Red Wire, we have been impressed with their apparel manufacturing skills. Apparently, so are the apparel brands which they manufacture for. Furthermore, the acquisition of Red Wire has already been useful in our efforts to acquire additional apparel brands who need a strong manufacturer coupled with the other complementary skill sets that 12 ReTech brings to the table.”
Mr. Ponzetta added, “Since January we have been working on the integration of our manufacturing operations under Red Wire’s management team and concurrent with the completion of this acquisition we are already operating as a seamless unit.”
Greg Haehl, Member of Red Wire’s Management commented, “I am excited to become part of 12 ReTech. The Company’s concepts for improving retailers and consumer brands go hand in hand with our business plan to expand. Now that our teams have learned to work together efficiently, we are prepared to take on bigger production projects that previously had to be turned away. The fact that we are now tied to the Emotion Fashion Group brands, means that we can continuously build inventory for our own brands and keep our factory running at full speed between outside contracted projects.”
Angelo Ponzetta finished, “The successful acquisition of Red Wire builds upon our operating base for additional acquisitions which we hope to announce soon.
