4imprint purchases UK assets from GearWorks
and announces US contracts wins
4imprint Group plc, the leading global distributor of imprinted promotional products, announces that it has agreed with GearWorks, the London-based merchandise services company, to take over their corporate programme UK customer base.
GearWorks’ UK customer base includes well-known brand names such as Lexus, MG Rover, Mazda, and Accenture and also includes Accenture’s F1 programme. The Group has retained the services of 2 key members of the GearWorks account management team to work full time on these programmes together with assisting on the Group’s new corporate programme acquisition strategy.
In the US, 4imprint has won two significant accounts. These are: Asea Brown and Boveri (ABB), a global leader in power and automation technologies and Odyssey Healthcare Inc., a provider of hospice care. 4imprint will provide these companies with a complete online ordering solution for their corporate promotional items, which are targeted to both corporate buyers and distributors within their own networks.
Dick Nelson, CEO of 4imprint Group plc, commented: “The integration of the GearWorks UK customer base into our own UK Corporate Programmes group allows us to add further prestigious names to our client base at a reduced cost, whilst generating attractive revenue streams. In the US, our recent wins are further confirmation of the strategy of using our network of AIA franchise owners to secure and service major clients. The pipeline of contracts in both the UK and the States is looking good and we look forward to working on these new accounts.”
