G.E.T. Enterprises, Winco Merge

G.E.T. Enterprises has merged with Winco, a manufacturer and importer of kitchenware and tableware. The merger was announced December 8 by G.E.T. and its investment partner, Olympus Partners.

Houston-based G.E.T. has been supplying dinnerware, drinkware, and displayware crafted from melamine and alternative materials for more than 30 years. Winco, founded in 1992 and based in Lodi, N.J., offers products in 20 categories, spanning tabletop to back-of-the- house items.

Heidi Modaro, CEO of G.E.T. and its parent company stated, “We are thrilled to create one G.E.T. and Winco family. By adding the Winco product lines, we are blending our alternative material products with a broad line of the highest quality smallwares.

“This merger will bring clear benefits to our customers,” she added. “Together, G.E.T. and Winco will have stronger new product development and sourcing capabilities. Importantly, we will be able to serve our customers faster and more effectively throughout the U.S. and internationally with a more extensive global supply chain and expanded distribution capabilities positioned strategically across the U.S. in California, Texas, and New Jersey.”

Winco CEO David Li commented, “I envision that a partnership with G.E.T. will be an excellent platform for us to build off each other’s brand strengths. We will work together to collaboratively support a broader range of markets and industries, and to further provide better products, services, and solutions to all of our customers.”
