River's End Trading and Page & Tuttle Unite as One Team
River's End Trading Company, Hopkins, Minn., announced the merge of the River's End and Page & Tuttle divisions to form one united team with one sales force, one catalog, one product offering and one website. The transition will take place over the next four months beginning with restructuring the sales force by October 1 and will culminate at the PPAI show in Las Vegas, January 2012.
"This is an exciting initiative for our company," said Tim Klouda, president of promotional products for River's End Trading Company. "With this merge from two separate divisions into one, we will establish a clear, unified message to our customers and provide one place for all their promotional apparel and decoration needs."
The 2012 catalog will combine the River's End Trading brands, including Columbia, PING Apparel, Tommy Hilfiger, Lacoste and River's End private label, with Page & Tuttle, Jockey and Forsyth in an all new 226-page catalog. The addition of these three exclusive brands for 2012 along with Brooks Brothers, a timeless classic American brand, provides a unique product offering not found anywhere else in the industry. The Page & Tuttle brand is designed, sourced and distributed exclusively through River's End Trading and is a fashion-forward, pure golf apparel line with legendary style and innovation since 1886.
"We are celebrating 30 years in business in 2012 and 125 years for the Page & Tuttle brand. We are creating the largest sales force in our company's history; the best of the best," said Dick Ward, CEO and president of River's End Trading Company. "We are excited and confident that this dedicated sales force, our strong collection of brands and our commitment to quality and service shows our loyalty to our customers and employees."
River's End Trading Company is a distributor of apparel and accessories to the promotional products and ad specialty industries, and the imprinted sportswear and uniform markets.
