The Singleton Company Associates With Kaeser & Blair
November 22, 2011
Counselor Top 40 distributor Kaeser
& Blair (asi/238600) announced today that Los Angeles, CA-based The Singleton Company
(asi/328000) has associated with it. While no financial information was
revealed, all of The Singleton Company's sales reps will be joining the Kaeser organization as part of the deal and Kaeser will be opening an office in California.
The Singleton Company is a third-generation family business now headed by Todd
Singleton. "I spent months researching the best possible fit for my reps
and found Kaeser & Blair provided the fit I
needed," said Todd Singleton in a statement. "I am pleased and
excited with the opportunities this partnership offers me and my sales group."
For Kaeser & Blair, this gives
the Batavia, OH-based distributorship a presence in California
that it didn't previously have. "We are very happy to welcome Todd and his
whole team to K&B," said Kurt Kaeser, CEO
of Kaeser & Blair. "Having the talented
sales professionals of The Singleton Company join the K&B Dealer Group is
an exciting event for both companies."
Kaeser & Blair ranks as the
17th-largest distributor in the industry, with $79.2 million in 2010 North
American ad specialty revenues. The company received Counselor's Distributor
Family Business of the Year award earlier this year. The Singleton Company,
which reports annual sales of $7 million to ASI's CreditConnect program, received the same honor in 2006.
