Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based supplier Pro Towels (UPIC: PROTOWEL) has acquired supplier Neet Feet (UPIC: NEETFEET), effective immediately. Oceanside, California-based Neet Feet has been supplying custom logo flip flops and sandals since 1987. It invented and introduced die-cut “logo footprint” flip flops that leave an imprint in the sand in 1989.

“No other supplier offers better quality custom logo footwear, flip flops and sandals than Neet Feet, and I believe the fit of the Neet Feet product line with that of Pro Towels and Kanata Blanket Company will make for a very positive experience for our valued customers,” says Kevin Nord, president of Pro Towels. “We are all very excited about what the future holds. We will be combining our operational capabilities and, with the enhanced diversity of our product line plus our geographic footprint, we will be able to provide excellence in every way to our distributor partners.”

John Amsterdam, president of Neet Feet, says, “After nearly 30 years building the Neet Feet brand, I was looking to focus on other interests but wanted to ensure there was a proper fit for Neet Feet with whomever acquired us. I wanted to ensure there was a future going forward. I'm stoked that Neet Feet is joining the Pro Towels family to take our quality footwear to the next level and into the future. The Pro Towels family shares the same culture and philosophy of building a solid team and first-class customer service that was always important to me. And I am happy that the Neet Feet product line will be offered to a vastly expanded customer base throughout North America.”

Pro Towels will maintain the Neet Feet brand as well as its industry identifiers. Pro Towels’ Kanata Blanket Company facility in Canada will enable the Neet Feet product line to be offered more easily to the Canadian market.

Brian Porter, Pro Towels’ vice president of sales, adds, “Bringing Neet Feet into the fold of the Pro Towels family is the perfect fit. We feel the synergies are there to not only sell product, but we can present our wide product selection in our distinctive packaging options for a complete branding solution.”
