Grossman Marketing Group Acquires Suncoast Print Solutions
Premier Marketing Group (PMG), a division of Somerville, Massachusetts-based Grossman Marketing Group, has acquired Suncoast Print Solutions, Sarasota, Fla., marking Grossman’s fifth acquisition in the past six years.
PMG founder Mike Whitman said Suncoast Print Solutions, a full-service print and promotional products company with a national client base that includes the Baltimore Orioles and Hyatt Hotels, will complement Premier’s product line and provide access to key national and Florida-based clients.
Whitman, now a Florida resident, said he initially discussed acquiring the 25-year-old Suncoast five years ago. This spring, he again approached Suncoast president Diana McGinty, and the deal was done.
“Obviously, I am very excited to have Suncoast on our team,” Whitman said.
McGinty, who will retire after serving as Suncoast’s president for 15 years, said she is “thrilled” to turn the reins over to PMG and its parent, Grossman Marketing Group, a 109-year-old, fourth-generation promotional products and print company.
“Grossman’s commitment to customer service and quality products is well known to its clients, including the Boston Celtics, Zipcar, CVS, Columbia University, University of Tampa, the Cleveland Clinic and many more,” McGinty said. “They will offer our customers added value in the fields of print production, artwork capability, custom-design web stores, branded merchandise and fulfillment, to name a few.”
“[Suncoast] fits in nicely with our growth strategy and our existing products and services, which include full-service graphic design, a network of company-owned distribution centers, multi-media solutions, and a dedicated technology team building best-in-class e-commerce programs for our clients,” said Ben Grossman, co-president of Grossman Marketing Group.
Grossman acquired Premier Marketing Group in 2017.
“Grossman is such a professional and forward-thinking company that I am sure Suncoast clients will greatly appreciate,” said Whitman.
Since 2013, Grossman has also acquired Logos In Print, a New-York based promotional products distributor; Fleet Business Products of East Hartford, Conn.; and ASAP, a Norwalk, Connecticut-based promotional products company.
