A subsidiary of the Alaska Native corporation for Nome is integrating its military uniform supply chain by acquiring a South Carolina company that prints camouflage fabric.

Vertical Acquisition 

Sitnasuak Native Corporation’s defense contractor, SNC Technical Services, is one of the largest American producers of uniforms and related tactical gear for the US armed forces. Since 2017, its key supplier of government-authorized camouflage patterns has been Bennettsville Printing. Now SNC Technical Services is taking over Bennettsville Printing.

SNC Technical Services CEO Humberto Zacapa says, “We are excited about the acquisition of Bennettsville Printing. Our plan is to continue serving the industrial base as a successful independent supplier. Our corporate role will be to provide the means to improve services and expand to new products, always seeking for better lead times and exceptional quality.”

Bennettsville Printing has been in operation for more than twenty years, providing textile printing, dyeing, and finishing for military and civilian applications. The acquisition provides a renewal in the industrial base, and the company will continue to operate under the same name and business structure.
