NorscotWe are pleased to announce that Simantel sold our Branded Products segment to Norscot Group, a leading promotional merchandise company. We will continue helping companies enhance their brands with promotional products. Norscot will now become Simantel’s official branded products provider.

Why We’re Excited?

Providing branded products for our clients’ tradeshows, events, award shows and campaigns remains an important part of our strategic marketing services. We are excited to provide the same services as always, just in a different business model. This decision now allows for Norscot to bring its resources and experience to the table.

Whether the need is to enhance a campaign, integrate new ideas or create high-quality creative work, we can help find the best options to support just about any initiative.

What This Means for Simantel Clients?

For decades, our branded products business was led by Wendy O’Laughlin. Wendy has moved her office to Norscot right here in Peoria (just down the street from our headquarters building) and will continue to service our account. We are very excited to continue providing creative strategies and  the excellent service our clients have come to expect.

“This is a win-win-win situation,” said Wendy O’Laughlin, Account Executive at Norscot. “I’m continuing to do what I love for all the accounts I previously worked on, all the while surrounded by the resources and experience to best serve our clients.”
