DJB Specialties Acquires GForce Promotions

Pennsylvania-based DJB Specialties (asi/173932) has announced the acquisition of GForce Promotions. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. “We know that GForce Promotions brings a strong reputation for delivering a quality purchasing experience along with a client base that expects the highest level of service with every transaction,” says David Blank, president of DJB Specialties. “We are confident that we are the right company to continue that tradition and build upon the existing success of both of our organizations.”

In business for more than 20 years, DJB Specialties provides in-house screen printing and embroidery services, along with promotional items. The firm is licensed through all major sportswear companies and currently outfits sporting tournaments and teams with uniforms and team spirit wear. Meanwhile, GForce Promotions opened eight years ago, founded by Philadelphia meeting and event planning company Gray Consulting Inc. to provide gifts for clients, meetings and incentive trips.

“It was critical for us to find a company who we were confident in that embraced the same level of innovation, creativity and service that GForce provided and was capable of a seamless transition for our clients,” says Kathy Murphy, president of Gray Consulting. “We found this with DJB Specialties.”

Going forward, nothing will change in the day-to-day activities of GForce. All existing accounts will be serviced by senior account executive Patrick Gallagher, who is transitioning with the GForce business unit.
