ThermoServ (asi/91080) announced on Friday that it has acquired MugWorld, a manufacturer of American-made decorative ceramic mugs. While financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, the companies said that MugWorld would remain at its headquarters in Gainesville, TX, and will keep its name. As per the deal, MugWorld will now serve as a product line under the ThermoServ umbrella. 

Through the acquisition, ThermoServ is expanding into a new product line for the company – high-quality, American-made ceramic mugs and tiles. The addition of the MugWorld product line marks an expansion of ThermoServ’s drinkware line, which will now cover the full spectrum from economy to specialty drinkware. Established in 2002, MugWorld is known for its series of ceramic mugs, tiles, coasters, and trivets that feature elaborate artwork. In addition to holding more than 200 collegiate licenses, the company holds design rights for many branches of the military.

ThermoServ has been in existence since 1952. The company says it officially closed the MugWorld transaction on June 30 and is now accepting orders for the new division of its company.

Making You Money: What ASI is all about.

Promotional products, also known as ad specialties, make up a $20.5 billion dollar industry and are used by virtually every business in America. Why? Items like mugs, pens and t-shirts are memorable and provide a better cost per impression for advertisers than almost every major marketing effort like prime time TV, magazines and radio.

With so many businesses buying ad specialties there is a huge opportunity for professionals looking to make great money running a promotional products distributorship. It’s easy and inexpensive to get started and you can work from home.
