Beacon Promotions Acquires Canyon Outback Leather Goods
"This is a great addition to the Beacon Promotions line of products and I expect the transition to go smoothly," said Gary Haley, president of Beacon Promotions. "This is the sixth acquisition for the Beacon staff, so we are very experienced in combining companies and getting production up and running quickly and efficiently."
"This is a much easier acquisition for Beacon as we are both located in the same community. All current Canyon Outback employees will come on board with Beacon and there will be no relocation of employees or equipment," Haley added.
Beacon will distribute the "New" 2012 Canyon Outback catalog by the beginning of next year. Beacon Promotions catalogs of Brand Builders, Calendars & Planners and Corporate Gifts will be distributed in December of this year.
Haley said that Canyon Outback Leather Goods will operate under its original name following the acquisition. "We continue with the great name of Canyon Outback because it has a great reputation for fine leather products and great service. It will be managed and serviced by the Beacon Promotions management group and the great employees from Canyon and Beacon," he said.
Canyon Outback Leather Goods' products will be available on both www.canyonoutback.com and www.beaconpromotions.com for the time being. Eventually the entire Canyon Outback catalog will be available on Beacon Promotions' site.
All customer service, order processing, sales and imprinting will continue at the Canyon Outback facility located in New Ulm, Minn. Customers can continue to contact Canyon Outback Leather Goods at email@example.com or (800) 769-3662.
Beacon Promotions' previous acquisitions include: Crowd Specialties, The Frontier Line, Four Star Incentives, Ready Reference Planners as well as a product partnership with Drimark Inc.
