    ESP Promo Joins Forces with the St Regis Group

    June 13, 2016

    Toronto, ON - The St Regis Group of Companies announced this morning that it has finalized an agreement to merge with Markham, ON-based supplier ESP Promo, including its Vancouver based subsidiary Promobilia. Financial terms of the merger were not disclosed.

    ESP will be moving its operations over the next few weeks into St Regis’s recently expanded manufacturing facility. With 150,000 sq/ft of production, warehousing and office space, the ESP team will find a comfortable home at the new state-of-the-art facility. The transition will be seamless for ESP customers as the company will preserve its ASI, SAGE, and PPPC numbers. Contact information (tel, fax, email) will all remain the same.

    ESP and Promobilia’s senior management team, office and production staff are all incredibly excited for the opportuntities this merger affords. Peggy Eng will continue as Promobilia’s director of Business Development and Merrick Falkenstein will remain as President of ESP. “This is an exciting day for the ESP team and we are thrilled to be joining forces with St Regis,” says Merrick. “Bringing these two organizations together will allow us tremendous opportunities to expand our market share and focus on what we do best; providing our loyal Distributors with the the most innovative products and the best customer service in our industry”.

    “We just recently cut the ribbon on our recently completed expansion, and were positioning ourselves for future growth, so the timing could not have been better”, says Richard Firkser, CEO and President of the St Regis Group. “Our two organizations complement each other nicely and this deal greatly enhances our competitive edge in the promotional industry. This merger ultimately provides our customers access to a larger, more diverse product range delivered with the same excellent service and quality they’ve come to expect from both St Regis and ESP”.

    Founded in 1993, ESP Promo has consistently been recognized as a top supplier with over 100 industry awards including Supplier of the Year, multiple ‘Best New Product’ awards as well as last year’s Best Catalog. Promobilia was established in 1999 as a direct custom importer, offering a diverse selection of merchandise catering to your clients’ individual preferences.
