Scalable Brands Makes Promo Industry Acquisitions, Including PMGOA
Venture capital firm Scalable Brands, which focuses on the promotional products and print-on-demand industries, announced that it has acquired Promotional Manufacturing Group of America (PMGOA), which is rebranding as Promoful. It has also acquired SameDayPOD, which includes Swagify.com.
The brands will move forward as Promoful and SameDayPOD, and will be led by Ben Taylor as president of Promoful and Louis Massaro as president of SameDayPOD.
“We are excited to have both Louie and Ben join the team," said Scalable Brands chief operating officer Andrea Perales. Our proprietary workflow and print-on-demand technology is what makes us unique. Our industry is driven by relationships, and we look forward to helping distributors pivot into the digital world."
Massaro joined PMGOA in April 2020. Before that, he was the national sales manager for Resellers Edge/Megafast, and spent 17 years as managing partner at Cooler Graphics.
“Cooler Graphics was where I started my career, and SameDayPOD is where I will end it," Massaro said. "Our low minimums and print on demand programs are the future, and I’m super excited to lead this company."
Before joining Scalable Brands, Taylor served as head of growth for cybersecurity tech company Vigilant Cybersecurity, and is the former chief marketing officer for promo industry supplier BamBams.
“I am humbled and excited to lead our organization into the future," Taylor said. "For the past six years, we have been skyrocketing up in the Inc. 500 list as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. Our team is top notch, and my counterpart Louis Massaro’s skill and vision in production and manufacturing has us poised to continue to be one of the fastest-growing supplier groups in our industry.”
“We are super excited about our two acquisitions," added Nick Kurji, CEO of Scalable Brands. "Both companies offer unique services, and are led by industry veterans who put distributors over profits. They have a combined experience of 40 years."
