Multi-channel and E-commerce giant Red Rocket Merchandising Corporation closed a deal last week to acquire Tee’s Plus. The purchase enhances Red Rocket’s custom printing division and saves jobs for former Tee’s Plus employees.
“Tee’s Plus is open for business,” said Ed Cook, CEO of Red Rocket. “We will continue to serve regional & national clients with premium branded merchandise and promotional products.”
Acquiring Tee’s Plus enhances the capabilities of Westbrook-based Red Rocket’s existing custom printing services. “Folding our existing operations into Tee’s Plus will be seamless,” said Mr. Cook. “We have the ability to continue providing the exceptional design and print services clients have come to expect from Tee’s Plus,” continued Mr. Cook.
Red Rocket has already re-hired some Tee’s Plus employees and is interviewing others. The company anticipates significant growth by the end of the year. “The number of employees will likely double by the end of 2012,” said Mr. Cook.
The acquisition of Tee’s Plus comes less than a year after Red Rocket purchased four other on-line merchandising businesses in southern Connecticut which has already contributed to its growth.
Red Rocket is a privately held company serving clients with music, sports and entertainment apparel and merchandise through multiple marketing channels.
