Polyconcept North America (PCNA) is excited to offer distributors six new retail brands, expanding an industry-best portfolio of 50+ retail brands and providing more ways to create memorable, on-trend gifts.
The brands include two Certified B Corporations, businesses that balance purpose and profit by considering their impact on workers, customers, community, and the environment. Terra Thread makes backpacks for conscious consumers and corporations, manufacturing bags from certified organic cotton in a Fair Trade Certified™ factory, while Nimble is the world’s first tech hardware brand with a 100% sustainable business model.
Like Terra Thread and Nimble, the other four new brands share PCNA’s commitment to environmental and social responsibility. All are part of ProudPath™, PCNA’s platform for environmental and social responsibility.
- Silipint makes patented, BPA-free, 100% food grade-tested and unbreakable silicone drinkware. Derived from sand, silicone manufacturing preserves less abundant natural resources.
- Rite in the Rain is a patented, environmentally responsible, All-Weather Writing Paper that repels water in wet, rainy conditions.
- Baronfig is a Made In USA, 100% employee-owned brand for well-crafted executive pens.
- Noshinku makes refillable pocket hand sanitizer free of synthetic chemicals.
The new brand partners will help distributors support two closely related trends that are reshaping the industry: corporate social responsibility and premium gifts from retail brands.
“From a corporate social responsibility perspective, people want sustainable, ethically manufactured products that last,” says Liz Haesler, Global Chief Merchandising Officer for PCNA parent company Polyconcept. “Our diverse portfolio of ProudPath™ brand partners make it easy for distributors to create meaningful gifts that reflect their clients’ values.”
Popular retail brands add unique value to corporate gifts, Haesler adds.
“The familiarity creates an instant trust,” she says. “People know they are getting a high-quality product. These are gifts they would buy for themselves.”
The new products from Nimble, Silipint, Rite in the Rain and Noshinku are in stock now. Inventory for Baronfig is expected in mid-February, Terra Thread by early March.
