American Solutions for Business Acquires Cannon Advertising Specialties Inc.
Cannon was established in 1982 as a division of a full-service advertising agency and has become a premium supplier of promotional marketing solutions to clients in the Cleveland area, throughout the U.S. and overseas. The company's evolution has paralleled the consistent growth seen in the promotional products industry during the past few decades.
"We're pleased to welcome the Cannon group to the American family," said Justin Zavadil, executive vice president at ASB. "Like us, Cannon has built its business and reputation through strong relationships, creative solutions and quality service."
Operating out of a 1909 school building on the edge of downtown Cleveland, Cannon has renovated its facility to creatively display 10,000 products in eight unique 'classroom' areas. The distinctive showroom will serve as a hub for ASB's recruitment efforts as the company looks to expand its footprint in the Cleveland market.
"Our team is pleased to become part of the American family," said Ross Salupo, owner of Cannon Advertising Specialties Inc. "Under their umbrella, we will have access to tools and resources we never could have obtained on our own, and we'll be able to offer a wider range of products and services than ever before."
Headquartered in Glenwood, Minn., ASB is an industry-leading distributor of promotional products, print and document solutions, office supplies, e-commerce and marketing solutions. The company employs a staff of nearly 300 employees who support the back office functions for a nationwide sales force of over 600 individuals.
