Koozie Group is pleased to announce today a new partnership with GoGo by Shed Rain®, a retail brand that includes joyful, affordable products backed by 75 years of expertise in the umbrella market. Koozie Group will be the exclusive supplier of GoGo® umbrellas in the promotional products industry. IMAGEN Brands, Koozie Group’s sister company, will continue to be the exclusive promo supplier of the Shed Rain® brand.  

The GoGo® brand was created by Shed Rain, a fourth-generation family business based in Portland, Oregon, with responsible sourcing in mind. Many GoGo® products are produced with 100% recycled plastics, and all 12 umbrellas offered by Koozie Group will be made from RPET, with an average of six to eight (16 oz.) water bottles being used depending on the arc size. The umbrellas offered by Koozie Group will also carry GoGo®’s lifetime guaranty.  

Pierre Montaubin, Chief Product and Sustainability Officer at Koozie Group, said, “The GoGo® brand shares many of our core values, including offering products with sustainability in mind. Their approach to making the fun moments more comfortable, no matter the weather, aligns with our goal of leaving a lasting, positive impact with the solutions we provide. We’re excited to bring GoGo® umbrellas to the promo market.”  

Jeff Blauer, President and CEO of Shed Rain, stated, “Shed Rain is proud of the partnership we have built with Koozie Group’s sister company, IMAGEN Brands, for the last several years.
