The Vernon Company again has been named one of the Top 40 Distributors in the promotional products industry by the Advertising Specialty Institute’s Counselor magazine. Vernon moves up a spot to 26th on the list of top-ranking industry firms.

“We’re very proud to be recognized as one of the leading firms in our industry,” said Chris Vernon, MAS, Vernon Company president. “We are successful because of the creativity, hard work and especially the extra effort our 450 employees provide every day, helping our clients find effective solutions to their marketing and branding needs.

“We’re also extremely proud to be one of just several companies to be consistently recognized on this list for the past 25 consecutive years.”

The annual Top 40 Distributor ranking identifies the largest promotional product distributor companies in the nation, based on their previous year’s revenue, as reported to ASI.

The Vernon Company, a fourth-generation family business founded in 1902, manufactures and markets promotional products designed to help other businesses increase sales and improve profits. The company has more than 30,000 customers, served by 265 account executives and sales managers throughout the United States and Puerto Rico and 190 administrative and production employees in its Newton headquarters and two sign graphics manufacturing subsidiaries based in Missouri and New Jersey.
