Grossman Marketing Group Acquires Premier Marketing Group of Manchester, Maine
SOMERVILLE, MASS. — February 6, 2017 — Grossman Marketing Group, a 107-year-old, fourth-generation, print and promotional products company, has acquired Premier Marketing Group of Manchester, Maine, expanding its full-service marketing operations and client base.
The new acquisition comes just three years after Grossman Marketing Group, headquartered in Somerville, MA, acquired ASAP, a Norwalk, Conn., promotional products firm, and just one year after Grossman acquired Fleet Business Products of East Hartford, Conn.
Grossman Marketing Group, whose client base represents a "who’s who" list of sports teams and business entities, now has major operations in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York and Washington, D.C.
Grossman Marketing Group’s clients include athenahealth, Boston Bruins, Boston Celtics, Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Columbia, Harvard and Tufts universities, Hewlett-Packard, International Academy of Arts and Sciences (Emmy Awards), John Hancock, L.L. Bean, Massachusetts General Hospital, Novocure, and Zipcar.
Mike Whitman, founder of Premier Marketing Group (PMG), said he is thrilled that his company, founded in 1995, is joining forces with "such a prestigious, well-established, growth-oriented company.” He said his client base, product line and service-oriented approach to customer relations will “dovetail nicely” with the Grossman team.
Ben Grossman, Co-President of Grossman Marketing Group, said Premier Marketing Group will become a division of Grossman Marketing Group but remain at its present location. He noted that PMG has a great reputation in the health care field with clients such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Community Health Centers, and USDA health and nutrition programs throughout the U.S.. In addition, PMG works with a number of financial services firms and universities throughout the country.
PMG has been recognized as an innovator in the industry for its custom and proprietary products they have designed to meet their clients’ needs. Like Grossman Marketing Group, PMG helps clients reach its target audiences through the use of promotional products, printing services, mobile marketing and multi-media solutions.
“PMG’s success and expertise in health and other business-related services is a perfect fit for us and will complement our existing products and services, which also include full-service graphic design, a network of company-owned warehouses and production facilities and a dedicated technology team building best-in-class e-commerce programs for our clients," says Grossman.
