Talbot Marketing Acquires Harp Promotions

London, ON-based Talbot Marketing (asi/341500) has acquired Mississauga-based Harp Promotions. Financial terms of the transaction were not released.

Harp joins Talbot with an extensive customer base across the Greater Toronto Area. Built over almost 20 years, the client roster is made up primarily of schools with spiritwear needs. “We’re excited to join the Talbot family,” said Canon Menon, president of Harp Promo, in a statement. “Talbot has a long history of supporting its sales associates with quality products and dedicated professional customer service staff. We will now have the support technologically, financially and with human resources to take our business to a whole new level.”

Talbot has 135 sales partners across Canada. The firm was recently named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies by Canadian Business magazine and a London Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year.

Steve Levschuk, President of Talbot

“We are extremely pleased with this acquisition,” said Talbot President Steve Levschuk, in a statement. “Canon Menon has made an immediate impact on the organization. Culturally, it is an excellent fit. We will remove all Canon’s back office work so he can concentrate of what he loves doing best – selling.”
