Distributors The Vernon Company (PPAI 109323), in Newton, Iowa, and Brandinc (PPAI 602113), with U.S. headquarters in Los Angeles, California, have formed a strategic partnership to serve Fortune 500 clients with domestic and international requirements for promotional marketing programs. Both organizations will continue to operate as separate companies and no financial terms were disclosed.

The partnership is dedicated to helping international corporations with their global branding initiatives, according to information released by The Vernon Company yesterday. It provides integrated technology solutions and core groups of custom-designed products that are both market specific and safety compliant to local distribution points throughout the world. The partnership brings Vernon’s North American branding and marketing experience together with Brandinc’s creative agency and global team approach in major markets throughout the world.

“We are really excited about this relationship with Brandinc,” says Chris Vernon, CEO of The Vernon Company. “After working closely with them on a complex multi-year program for an international company, we quickly realized that both organizations could benefit immensely if we were to formally collaborate together. We feel Brandinc’s highly creative product development team compliments Vernon’s broad array of administrative, marketing, financial and technology services. Our partnership is a win-win for Vernon and Brandinc, as well as a major benefit for our mutual U.S. and international clients. In addition, we feel this provides a major leap forward for existing and future AEs to present turnkey creative marketing and global distribution programs.”

Adrian Ferrand, CEO of Brandinc, adds, “This is an exciting opportunity for Brandinc to grow our business by partnering with a well-established and technology focused marketing firm. Vernon has earned its reputation for being one of the most financially-solid distributors with a philosophy of being a customer-focused organization that closely mirrors that of Brandinc. Together we will hit the ground running in our approach to find creative business solutions for Fortune 500 companies around the globe.”
