New Ulm, Minnesota-based supplier Beacon Promotions, Inc. (UPIC: BEACONP) has acquired the Imagery Group (UPIC: IGROUP), a Nashville, Tennessee, company.
Gary Haley, president of Beacon Promotions, says: “The Imagery Group is a very high-quality name badge supplier with the unique Badgewarehouse© release program website. We are proud to add this company to our family of product lines. This addition brings another ‘new’ category into the Beacon Promotions product mix.”
The Imagery Group’s customer service, order processing, sales and imprinting services have moved to Beacon’s New Ulm facility. Beacon’s field and inside sales staff will handle its products effective immediately. It will distribute a new Imagery Group catalog by the beginning of 2013. In the interim, the Imagery Group’s 2012 catalog and pricing will remain in place.
Brett Olsen, Beacon Promotions’ director of manufacturing, says: “The transition is going smoothly, and we are currently answering the phones, sending samples and producing orders. We are thrilled with our customers’ ongoing support as we make the transition to our new location, and we want them to know that we are happy to be their main badge resource in the future.”
