Lonesource Acquires Better Business Forms
From Marketwise
January 2009

Better Business Forms & Products (asi/138692), a Greensboro, NC-based distributor that offers promotional products in addition to print services, office products and document management solutions, has been acquired by office product supplier Lonesource. No financial terms were announced for the two North Carolina companies, nor was it revealed how and when Better Business Forms (BBF) would be integrated into Lonesource. “Lonesource recognized that BBF’s success with print and promotional products and services can be applied to every Lonesource customer and across every business large and small,” says BBF president Tim Anderson. “This represents a tremendous growth opportunity for both companies.”

Founded eight years ago, Lonesource services Fortune 1000 companies by optimizing corporate spending through a Web-based platform into a single invoice. In addition to promotional products, the company says acquiring BBF will allow for sales capabilities, warehouse storage and delivery for any business. “This acquisition advances our mission to be, ‘The only source you need. Period.’” says Lonesource CEO Bradley King. “We are combining a wide range of products, expertise and resources that will provide even greater value to all of our customers, employees and shareholders.”

Making You Money: What ASI is all about.

Promotional products, also known as ad specialties, make up a $20.5 billion dollar industry and are used by virtually every business in America. Why? Items like mugs, pens and t-shirts are memorable and provide a better cost per impression for advertisers than almost every major marketing effort like prime time TV, magazines and radio.

With so many businesses buying ad specialties there is a huge opportunity for professionals looking to make great money running a promotional products distributorship. It’s easy and inexpensive to get started and you can work from home.
