Midwest Promotional Group (UPIC: MIDPROMO) has acquired Elmhurst, Illinois-based Goes Incentives, effective March 1. Midwest, headquartered in Burr Ridge, Illinois, has assumed all operations and sales functions of Goes.
Goes Incentives has been in the industry for more than 40 years and has reps in three states. They and the rest of the Goes administrative staff have been absorbed into Midwest. Dennis Snyder of Goes Incentives says that his search for a merger partner took 18 months, and he is satisfied that his accounts will be served at the best possible levels. He adds, “The firm is very similar to ours: it has a strong financial history and it is staffed by seasoned and dedicated account managers who are supported by an extensive customer service department backed up by full in-house capabilities.” Snyder will stay involved in a consultative capacity.
Dave Lewandowski, president of Midwest Promotional Group, says: “We are truly a one-stop shop, able to eliminate many middlemen resulting in faster service and better quality control. With all of these money-saving and quality-controlling operations in-house, our business is truly blossoming. The increase in our business has required us to expand our facility and allowed us to create a state-of-the-art operation. The Goes acquisition dovetails nicely with our existing accounts and allows their customers to benefit from our in-house services.”
