Headwear Acquires Snowcap USA
Competition Headwear (asi/46179) has announced the acquisition of fellow
supplier Snowcap USA (asi/88045), based out of Englewood, CO. Financial
terms of the deal were undisclosed. “We do our own embroidery, as well
as cut and sew, and Snowcap didn’t do that, so we’re full service,” says
Laurence Polner, owner of Competition Headwear, a 25-employee firm based out
of Denver. Polner says there will be no changes to Competition Headwear’s
executive team, and that Snowcap’s manufacturing and sales departments
will be added into Competition Headwear’s 18,000-square-foot facility in
Denver. All of Snowcap’s customer service representatives will be retained. “We
have a fairly sizable manufacturing facility, and having one facility just works
out better. We have more capabilities,” he says.
Day Propels Distributor’s
Brand Fuel (asi/145025)
held its annual self-promotional
Rocket Day earlier this
month. Danny Rosin, president
of Brand Fuel, says over
20 supplier partners and
300 clients attended the
Cinco de Mayo-themed event
in Morrisville, NC. “There
was a Mariachi band, a
piñata filled with
Brand Fuel-logoed candy,
airplane bottles filled
with tequila and custom-flavored
ice cream called Rocket
Road,” Rosin says. “It
was a great example of
a distributor creating
suppliers and end-buyers,” says
Timothy M. Andrews,
president of ASI, who
attended the event. “I
was especially impressed
that Danny and his
team were perfectly
their key clients walking
around the show, speaking
with suppliers and,
in the end, knowing
the clients would buy
from Brand Fuel with
no fear they’d
go direct to suppliers.”
motivation for the event,
which is also held annually
in Norfolk, VA (this year’s
date is July 20), was not
only to attract new clients,
but to spread word of Brand
Fuel’s fifth move in
eight years. Rocket Day also
included a complete tour
of its new facility. “It’s
our own self-fulfilling prophecy,
really,” Rosin says. “So
many people buy online now.
It’s a great way to
meet the people in person
behind the e-mails.”
Jack Nadel International (asi/279600) has named Shelly Slubowski its
2006 Sherman Teller Award winner. The internal award, named after Sherman Teller,
the third sales representative hired by Jack Nadel when the company was founded

both personal and professional challenges, according to Craig Reese, senior vice
president. Slubowski has been working at Jack Nadel since 1987.
“She’s talented, she’s fearless and she’s just adored
and beloved by everyone at Jack Nadel,” says Reese of Slubowski, who is
an expert in the pharmaceutical industry and
Supplier R.S. Owens (asi/75530) has received a design patent for its
Trellis Award, a unique metal and acrylic award. “It may be the hot new
thing right now, so getting a design patent makes it more exclusive to R.S Owens’ line
and to our distributors as well,” says Dave Kogan, marketing assistant.
The Trellis Award has a 3/4-inch clear acrylic and satin pewter finish cast metal
base, which is also covered under the patent. R.S. Owens has been in the promotional
products industry for over 65 years.
