FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Image Pros, LLC Merges with Peoples Promotions, Inc.
Successful Promotional Products Firms Combine to Add New Services to a Legacy of Excellence in Customer Service
BROWNSBURG, IN – Promotional products firms, Image Pros, LLC and Peoples Promotions, Inc., have merged effective January, 2017 and will continue business under the Image Pros, LLC name.
Peoples Promotions, Inc. was established by Donovan Peoples in 1993. Peoples Promotions is especially known for being a provider of branded apparel, promotional items and gifts, and customized trophies and awards. The company primarily served businesses and individuals in Hendricks County and on the west side of Indianapolis.
Image Pros, LLC began operations in Brownsburg in 2009 headed by Bruce Steinman. Steinman started the business after more than 20 years of advertising, marketing, technology, and management experience. Image Pros services the broader metropolitan Indianapolis area.
Friendly competitors, the two owners found they shared the same values when it comes to work ethic and customer service. Both men bring deep wells of experience and expertise when it comes to marketing and delivering products that meet the needs, and exceed the expectations, of their clients. Their shared values were the basis for the eventual merger of their two companies.
After twenty-four years, Peoples was interested in taking a reduced role in his business, but was not interested in letting down any of his customers. Steinman has been growing Image Pros year over year and was interested in an opportunity to expand his business into Hendricks County and the west side of Indianapolis.
About the merger, Peoples said, “In addition to continuing the tradition of excellent service and experience, Image Pros brings a network of national relationships that will provide my customers with new product and service options at even more competitive prices.”
Steinman’s background in technology and corporate business contributes to the way Image Pros operates and the services available to his customers. Products and programs can be accessed and orders processed online and the company can help clients establish company stores online as well. “I want to keep it easy for my clients,” Steinman said.
Image Pros specializes in developing custom programs and solutions based on the client’s desired outcomes. Steinman said, “It is important to me and my business that I not have a pre-determined idea of what a client needs. I listen to what they want to achieve. It might be more sales, customer retention, employee recognition or awards, or lead generation. We then devise the strategy that best fits their brand, their desired outcome, and their budget.”
While he says Image Pros is a one-stop-shop for many, Steinman emphasizes that it is by no means a one-size-fits-all provider.
Peoples says he is confident that the people with whom he has built strong professional and personal relationships with over the life of Peoples Promotions will be well served by Image Pros. Steinman is excited for the new challenge and opportunity the merger brings Image Pros and looks forward to continuing the legacy of excellence Peoples Promotions has built.
