Vault Promotions Acquires GMCline’s Assets
Supplier Vault Promotions, LLC (PPAI 547406, S5), based in Hendersonville, Tennessee, has acquired the assets of Gateway Marketing Concepts (PPAI 438435, S1), also known in the promotional products industry as GMCline. Judy Eppel, the former owner of Encinitas, California’s Gateway Marketing Concepts, will remain part of the combined organization to ensure continuity of service. As part of the agreement, Vault Promotions will also take ownership of Fleisher Products and Signs and MediMag assets.
“When Judy and I began discussing the possibility of Vault acquiring GMCline, it instantly became clear that their production capabilities would enhance our current offerings,” says Josh Robbins, co‐owner of Vault Promotions. “By adding GMC’s impressive stable of clients, production techniques and large‐scale equipment, Vault will continue to lead the promotional products industry in both badge decoration abilities and a client‐first attitude.”
Eppel adds, “We have long admired Vault’s approach to the badge sector of the industry. With our wide product line combined with the ease of fulfillment using their Badge Vault online release program, I know that the former GMCline clients will be as thrilled as I am to be associated with the industry leaders at Vault Promotions.”
Andy Logan, co‐owner of Vault Promotions, says, “Our two companies complement each other perfectly in terms of both production and product lines. When you add their 30‐plus years of experience in the industry, it wholly aligns with our focus on online fulfillment.”
