Two powerhouses of the US distribution sector, The Vernon Company and Brandinc, have officially formed a strategic partnership. With the former placing no.19 on ASI’s ‘Top 40 Distributors’ list and the latter earning eighth place on the ‘Fastest growing 2017’, this collaboration aims to serve Fortune 500 clients with domestic and international requirements for promo marketing programs.
The new partnership is dedicated to helping international corporations with their global branding initiatives. It provides integrated technology solutions and core groups of custom-designed products that are both market specific and safety compliant to local distribution points throughout the world.
CEO of The Vernon Company, Chris Vernon, noted, “We are really excited about this relationship with Brandinc. After working closely with them on a complex multi-year program for an international company, we quickly realised that both organisations could benefit immensely if we were to formally collaborate together.
“We feel Brandinc’s highly creative product development team compliments Vernon’s broad array of administrative, marketing, financial and technology services. Our partnership is a win-win for both companies, as well as a major benefit for our mutual US and international clients. In addition, we feel this provides a major leap forward for existing and future AE’s to present turn-key creative marketing and global distribution programs.”
The Vernon Company, a fourth-generation family business founded in 1902, is an integrated manufacturer and marketer of branded merchandise programs designed to help businesses increase revenues, improve profits and enhance employee morale.
Adrian Ferrand, CEO of Brandinc, elaborated, “This is an exciting opportunity for Brandinc to grow our business by partnering with a well-established and technology focused marketing firm. Vernon has earned its reputation for being one of the most financially-solid distributors and a philosophy of being a customer-focused organization closely mirrors that of Brandinc. Together we will hit the ground running in our approach to find creative business solutions for Fortune 500 companies around the globe.”
