Freehold-based Tomar Industries, under the leadership of CEO Tom Field and President Thomas Field, is about to acquire its sixth company, Avenel-based Falcon Supply Company, a direct competitor that has been in business for 42 years. The transaction is expected to close by the end of September.
Falcon, like Tomar, is a packaging and janitorial supply company. Falcon’s sales staff and key personnel will join the Tomar team in Freehold, bringing Tomar’s staff to 35. The combined companies will be able to offer Tomar’s and Falcon’s customers additional products and services that were not available until the acquisition.
Tomar Industries, a regional distributor of packaging, janitorial, and safety supplies, equipment and services for businesses, institutions, warehouses, manufacturers, and front offices, recently celebrated its 50th year in business.
Thomas Field said, “In all these acquisitions, we try to learn the niche or thing the company does really well and combine it with Tomar’s history of success. With the new combination, we are able to improve what both companies already do, which makes Tomar a better company because it can offer added solutions for industries.”
Field says he will continue to look for more acquisitions to increase his market share. “It is part of our overall strategy to continue to grow our business.”
In 1968, Tom Field began his business in a garage. Today, Tomar owns a 40 thousand square-foot building in Freehold, with more than 30 full-time staff and a fleet of trucks on the road that service companies in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and northern Delaware.
As president of the family-owned Tomar Industries, Thomas Field is in charge of the overall operation and direction of the company. Thomas Field, a graduate of St. Joseph’s High School, Metuchen, earned a B.A. in business administration from Seton Hall University, South Orange. In 1992, he started in the company as a sales rep.
Tomar Industries is a member of the International Sanitary Supplies Association (ISSA), National Paper Trade Association (NPTA), and The United Group (TUG), a national marketing and buying organization that supplies products and services to 450 members across the United States. Tom Field also serves as a fiduciary member on the TUG Board of Directors.
