Geiger Acquires ProCorp Images, Inc.
Lewiston, Maine-headquartered distributor Geiger (PPAI 105182, D12) has acquired distributor ProCorp Images, Inc. (PPAI 101475, D7), based in Englewood, Colorado. First announced Monday in a PPB Newslink Breaking News alert, the acquisition is part of Geiger’s continued expansion strategy focused on broadening its client base and services nationally.
Founded in 1995, ProCorp specializes in corporate company store programs and has sales staff in Wyoming, Arizona, Georgia and Hawaii. In a press release, Geiger notes that ProCorp’s culture, philosophy and focus on exemplary customer service make it a perfect fit for the company.
“We are extremely excited about joining the Geiger family and having access to Geiger’s resources and expertise,” says ProCorp President Rick Bowman (above right, with, from left, founder Jim Elsea and Vice President Lynn Oder). “We are also excited about the compatibility of our cultures. From the start of our negotiations, we could see that we all believed employees should be valued as family and clients should always be amazed by our service. We believe that the new partnership will help ProCorp move to the next level and will help Geiger become a major player in ProCorp’s current markets.”
Geiger SVP and CRO Chris McKee, MAS, adds, “We are so impressed by the ProCorp team. To a person, they are creative, motivated and committed to their clients’ success. We look forward to sharing our global technology, service and distribution resources to scale their business.”
After the acquisition, ProCorp will continue to support its current clients as ProCorp Images (a Geiger company). Geiger’s technology and fulfillment/kitting services will enable ProCorp to expand its services and offer better support and flexibility for clients.
“The combination of Rick Bowman’s team and talent, coupled with the Geiger team is exciting,” says Jo-an Lantz, MAS, Geiger CEO and president. “We couldn’t be happier that ProCorp and Geiger will be working together for a very promising shared future.”
The acquisition continues Geiger’s planned expansion which includes UK-based BCT Group, now GeigerBCT, in 2018 and most recently Fogelsville, Pennsylvania-based Five Thousand Forms, dba GiveMeFive.com, in March 2021.
