DALLAS—BSN Sports announces the acquisition of Gulf Coast Athletic Supply (GCAS). Based in Sugarland, Texas since the 1990s, GCAS distributes team apparel and equipment in the south coast region of Texas, including the Greater Houston market.
"We are thrilled to welcome Beau and Josh Blackard, and their talented team to the BSN SPORTS family," says Terry Babilla, president of BSN. "GCAS will contribute a talented group of team sports professionals to our growing organization and, just as importantly, their culture of stellar customer service and a 'customer first' commitment is a perfect fit with our approach to the team sports and community marketplaces.”
"Joining forces with BSN SPORTS represents a rare opportunity to rapidly expand services and new product lines to our customer base of the past 27 years,” adds Ron Blackard, president of GCAS. “I am also confident that BSN's excellent track record of creating expanded opportunities for employees will benefit our own team, and we are excited to join BSN SPORTS and help shape the future of team sports in Texas."
The acquistion continues BSN's recent trend of expansion nationwide. In late 2017, the company announced it had acquired partial assets from Hibbett Team Sales, a team apparel distributor based in Birmingham, Alabama.
