The Singleton Company Associates With Kaeser & Blair
BREAKING NEWS 
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.

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.
