Incentive Concepts Ltd (asi/62536) has been acquired by St. Louis-based
investment group, Eagle Fund I. The terms of the deal were not revealed. Jeffrey
Reinberg has been named the new president and CEO of the firm which specializes
in high-end incentive awards. Shelby Anderson III, founder and former owner,
will stay on during the temporary transition period. He said the move would “allow
us to move forward aggressively as the incentive industry also expands.” As
for the near future, the company’s strategy will remain the same, says
Barry Hana, vice president of sales and marketing: “We have a number of
commitments to meet before we can really get started and I would say that that
process is just beginning now. Hopefully by 2006, we will be in pretty good shape
in regards to the planning process.”
WW Group (asi/94252) is closed for the remainder of the week due to
local fuel shortages. The company sustained no damage from the storm and has
both phone and electrical service. They will re-open Monday 31st.

SPCS Acquires Kreations,
Moves Toward One-Stop Shop
Marketing LLC (asi/316091)
has acquired Kreations Custom
Embroidery, a non-industry
embroiderer in La Crescent,
MN. Details were not disclosed,
other than it was a cash purchase
and total buyout. Kreations
has been relocated to SPCS’ Holmen,
WI, location. “We’ve
wanted to be a one-stop shop
for clients for some time,
and this was a way of allowing
it to happen,” explains
Paula Zastrom, SPCS co-owner. “We
had already been offering screenprinting
and custom heat transfers.
Embroidery was the only thing
we didn’t do in-house.” She
adds that in addition to picking
up Kreations’ entire
client list as new business,
SPCS has also added several
new clients as a result of
its being able to offer embroidery
as a service.
