Next Products and Indiana Metal Craft Announce Joint Product
Promotional products industry suppliers Next Products, Shelbyville, Ind.; and Indiana Metal Craft, Bloomington, Ind., recently announced a joint product venture. Utilizing the creativity and U.S.-made manufacturing expertise of each company, they have created a lifetime-guaranteed line of double-walled tumblers, with a pewter medallion protectively placed between the inner and outer walls of the Tritan-constructed tumblers.
“As much as we are excited about the new tumbler, we are also thrilled that two industry suppliers could work together to create something unique,” said Jeff Batson, president, Next Products. “Without the skills and imagination of each of our companies, this product would not be possible. Indiana Metal Craft has a long history of metal casting innovation, and blending their pewter medallion with our flagship tumbler is a beautiful combination.”
“We see thousands of tumblers every day, and even we said ‘wow!’ when the first prototype was complete,” said Jarod Johnson, vice president, Indiana Metal Craft. “The combination of the materials presents a rich look that exceeds the sum of the parts.”
The Medallion Tumbler is offered in 16 oz. and 26 oz. sizes, with plans for a 12 oz. size. The medallion is cast in lead-free pewter, with brass and copper finish options available. The inner wall of the tumbler comes in clear or a selection of eight colors—blue, green, lime, orange, purple, red, smoke, and yellow—with lids to match. The medallion tumbler has a lifetime guarantee, and is freezer safe, hot-water safe and dishwasher safe. Due to the metal emblem, it is not microwave safe.
