Gemini Industries Acquires F&H Ribbon Co.
Gemini Industries (PPAI 112011) today announced its acquisition of supplier F&H Ribbon Co. (PPAI 111931). Terms of the sale were not disclosed.
Founded in Dallas in 1962, F&H Ribbon designs and manufactures highly customized award ribbons, neck ribbons, rosettes, sashes, banners, celluloid buttons, certificates and folders, and also carries a full line of medals, award pins and tiaras. Gemini’s acquisition of F&H Ribbon will expand the Roxana, Illinois-based supplier’s product offering to the promotional products and awards and recognition industry.
“We are excited to add F&H Ribbon to our portfolio of industry-leading products and services,” says Gemini President Scott Schaeffer. “For more than 55 years, F&H Ribbon has been synonymous with extremely high quality customized ribbons and rosettes throughout the United States. We plan to continue investing in and building our combined company, and we are singularly focused on offering our customers, both new and old, the best products and services in the country.”
Gemini was established in St. Louis in 1954, and later the company relocated and built its current facility in Roxana to expand production and better serve its customers.
“I am very pleased to partner with Gemini,” says Rhea Ann Pope, president of F&H Ribbon Co. “I have known Gemini’s reputation for high quality, made-in-the-USA promotional products for decades, and I could not ask for a better steward of our business. Our companies complement each other, and I’m confident that all stakeholders will benefit—customers through a stronger and broader line of products, and vendors through increased investments to expand our product lines. I look forward to bigger and better things for F&H Ribbon’s customers as a result of this union.”
