Appleton, WI (Sept. 9, 2020) – AIA Corporation (AIA) recently welcomed seven distributors, including Brandify Promos, Go Fish Promotions, Great Ideas!, Hoopla Marketing Merchandise, Metromarketing Services, Inc., Salt Services and Sense, Inc. to its community of nearly 300 independent Owners and more than 3,000 supplier partners. All will have access to AIA’s industry leading financial, technical, sales, marketing and purchasing solutions. Together, these distributors will bring $9.3 million in projected total contract sales to AIA.
“We’re thrilled that these distributors have chosen to join the AIA Community and we’re proud to support them on their growth journey,” said Clay Hall, Vice President of Owner Success and Business Development. “Each of these businesses embody the values that AIA is built on -- smart, hungry, honest, collaborative and All In! -- and share a similar vision for agility and growth during this unpredicatable time.”
