Hub Pen Company Acquires Beacon Promotions
This morning, Hub Pen Company, Braintree, Mass., announced that it has acquired Beacon Promotions, New Ulm, Minn. The acquisition was finalized in December.
"For more than 60 years, Hub Pen has focused solely on writing instruments, and in doing so, we were able to deliver the highest quality pens at a better value than anyone on the market," Joe Fleming, president of Hub Pen Company, said in a statement. "Joining forces with Beacon Promotions enables us to apply that same passion for excellence to a broader product offering, while continuing to deliver the best writing instruments in the industry."
"Any time you have an opportunity to partner with an industry leader like Hub and gain access to the great product lines they have, that's very exciting for us," said Gary Haley, president of Beacon Promotions. "We are really looking forward to adding Javalina pens to our broad promotional products portfolio."
Fleming and Haley will continue to hold leadership positions for the combined team going forward. Hub Pen Company and Beacon Promotions will appear for the first time with a shared strategy for the PPAI Expo in Las Vegas from Jan. 8 to 12. Attendees can find the Hub Pen Company booth at No. 1646, and Beacon Promotions at booth No. 5340.
