Custom HBC and Next Innovations Announce Partnership
Larry Wilhelm, CEO of Custom HBC Corporation, Waconia, Minn., and Jason Zacher, vice president of Next Innovations LTD, Walker, Minn., today announced that their companies had entered into a strategic alliance to supply an extensive line of precision laser-cut metal products decorated with the Infusion full-color image process to the promotional products industry. Next Innovations had previously marketed some of their products to the industry under their NI Promotions banner.
The product line includes metal dog tags, key tags, luggage tags, golf items, plaques, clocks, license plate frames and decorative wind spinners, all made in the USA in Next Innovation's facility in Walker, Minn.
"We are pleased to introduce the Next Innovations line to the promotional products industry," Wilhelm said. "Their products represent a major leap forward in metal products' decorating quality and durability. The Infusion process allows the economical application of full-color imagery onto a metal powder-coated surface. This results in products with exceptional color graphics and durability. Importantly, their precision laser-cutting technology makes custom shapes available in all these categories for a nominal fee at reasonable minimums."
The Infusion decorated metal products will be introduced at the 2012 PPAI Expo at Custom HBC's booth, #5233, and will be available for shipment beginning on January 2nd, 2012.
