Vantage Apparel announces the acquisition of full-service European corporate apparel supplier Lynka, which is headquartered in Poland. According to a news release, this acquisition makes Vantage the largest global supplier and decorator of corporate apparel.
Known for its multi-brand wholesale apparel and merchandise, Lynka will inventory Vantage’s core product assortment.
“Our partnership with Lynka will allow distributors with global customers to achieve consistency in both top-quality apparel and decoration that have been a pinnacle of achievement for both companies through the years,” says Ira Neaman, CEO of Vantage Apparel.
Lynka’s leadership remains intact, with founder and shareholder John Lynch as president, leading the over 250-member team in Poland, which services customers across 25 countries in Europe. Lynka ships decorated apparel anywhere in Europe in three to 10 business days.

“I have personally known Vantage for well over a decade,” says Lynch. “Whenever we shared war stories over the years, Ira and I always agreed that Vantage and Lynka are remarkably similar companies – our unique one-stop-shop solution, our top-notch decoration, and in particular, our approach to business, including our core values. I can’t imagine a better partner than Vantage for the future.“
Single-piece garment decoration and full print-on-demand (POD) services are growing for both company’s strategies.
Like Vantage, Lynka is known for its embellishment. Having recently relocated to a 100,000-square-foot decoration and logistics facility outside of Krakow, Lynka offers its clients various decoration methods, including screen print, embroidery, transfer print, sublimation, and direct-to-garment digital printing. It’s a WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) certified apparel manufacturer.
