Terms of the deal were not disclosed. "We are thrilled to be able to add Timenet's line of high quality metal writing instruments, keychains and gift items to Tempo's already impressive line of USB flash drives, tools and other products," said Stuart Braunstein, president of Tempo. "This addition enables us to offer a more comprehensive line of products and decorating options to our customers and be a major supplier in these new product categories instantly."
