Welcome IMAGEN Brands
Late last year, we welcomed Top 40 supplier IMAGEN Brands to the Koozie Group family, and we couldn’t be more excited! “Both Koozie Group and IMAGEN Brands are leaders in the promotional products industry. Our intent is to operate their sales, customer support and operations as a stand-alone business while adding marketing resources and support to help them grow,” said Koozie Group CEO, David Klatt.
It is business as usual at both companies as the Customer Service, Sales and Production Teams continue to operate independently. You can still contact IMAGEN Brands customer service regarding IMAGEN Brands orders and Koozie Group customer service for orders with Koozie Group. Check out the official press release to learn more about our acquisition of IMAGEN Brands.
