The Ampersand Group Helps Member Secure Business With National Retailer
The Ampersand Group helped one of its members in the Akron area secure a three-year, multimillion-dollar contract with one of the nation’s largest publicly held retailers with over 3,800 store locations. The vendor relations team’s guidance and hard work in identifying the appropriate vendors to use, along with the buying power through the company’s buying group, The Power of One Group, made this possible.
“We are extremely excited to have helped our member win this business,” said Todd Mellon, president of The Ampersand Group. “It took a team of people working long hours to help bring this together from the initial strategy sessions, to completing the proposal, to presenting the solutions and the multiple meetings that followed with the client. Our member was excited to learn that because of our expanded experience in the print and promotional products industries, they are able to consider us for other additional products. Our state-of-the-art online solution will help their many locations procure their products with convenience and ease.”
The member noted that within the first few months since securing the business, they have already generated more than $400,000 in sales.
“We could not have done this without Ampersand’s help,” the member said. “They worked side-by-side with us through the entire process. We are able to have piece of mind to handle these large orders and the infrastructure and online technology solutions that truly keeps us advancing to the top.
“Our goal is to continue to grow and we know that we have found a true partner that does what they say they will. They … provide the right technology solutions, including integration, so that we do not have to double-key our orders. We look forward to what the future brings with our partnership."
