The Link Companies, Don Mar Associates align
Retail Editor 3 -- Home Textiles Today, October 15, 2012
Atlanta - The Link Companies (formerly The Southern Link of GA) has restructured its sales agencies in the Southeast, while forming a partnership with the Don Mar Associates sales agency in the Mid Atlantic/Northern states.
Expanding presence at the Atlanta markets was a big factor behind the arrangement, according to Don Bouchard, co-owner of Don Mar Associates. "Our team works extensively at the Atlanta Markets, and now we have a partnership that allows us to maximize sales in The Link showrooms."
The family-owned companies will work together at markets in the Southeast, Mid Atlantic and Northeast.
"We've always had an interest in this region and are already working with Don, Sal and their team," said Brad Rosenkampff, co-owner of The Link Companies. "Our business philosophies are very similar, and we both have a strong reputation with the independent retailer. This is a natural fit."
Both companies will retain their management, corporate offices and sales teams. Vendor partnerships will remain unchanged, with the regions being separated geographically.
