Grossman Marketing Group Acquires Suncoast Print Solutions of Sarasota, FL

The Associated Press

SOMERVILLE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2019--

Premier Marketing Group (PMG), a division of Massachusetts-based Grossman Marketing Group, has acquired Suncoast Print Solutions of Sarasota, FL, marking Grossman’s fifth acquisition in the past six years.

PMG Founder Mike Whitman said Suncoast Print Solutions, a full-service print and promotional products company with a national client base that includes the Baltimore Orioles and Hyatt Hotels, will complement Premier’s product line and provide access to key national and Florida-based clients. PMG is headquartered in Manchester, Maine.

Whitman, now a Florida resident, said he initially discussed acquiring Suncoast, a 25-year-old company, five years ago. This spring, he again approached Suncoast President Diana McGinty and the deal was done. “Obviously, I am very excited to have Suncoast on our team,” said Whitman.

Suncoast prides itself on helping clients hone their corporate image by providing high quality printed collateral and “stroke of genius” promotional items.

McGinty, who will retire after serving as Suncoast’s president for 15 years, said she is “thrilled” to turn the reins over to PMG and its parent, Grossman Marketing Group, a 109-year-old, fourth-generation promotional products and print company headquartered in Somerville, MA.

“Grossman’s commitment to customer service and quality products is well known to its clients, including the Boston Celtics, Zipcar, CVS, Columbia University, University of Tampa, the Cleveland Clinic, and many more,” said McGinty. “They will offer our customers added value in the fields of print production, artwork capability, custom-design web stores, branded merchandise and fulfillment, to name a few.”

Ben Grossman, Co-President of Grossman Marketing Group with his brother David, said Suncoast “fits in nicely with our growth strategy and our existing products and services, which include full-service graphic design, a network of company-owned distribution centers, multi-media solutions, and a dedicated technology team building best-in-class e-commerce programs for our clients.”

Grossman acquired Premier Marketing Group in 2017 and Whitman could not be happier. “Grossman is such a professional and forward-thinking company that I am sure Suncoast clients will greatly appreciate,” said Whitman.

Since 2013, Grossman has also acquired Logos In Print, a New-York based promotional products distributor; Fleet Business Products of East Hartford, CT; and ASAP, a Norwalk, CT based promotional products company.
