Distributor IC Group (UPIC: ICGroup) has acquired promotional products distributor Edge Promos of Draper, Utah, effective immediately. Edge Promos has combined with IC Group’s Salt Lake City home office, expanding its presence in that market and adding new capabilities in the area of importing and event marketing.

“The merger of IC Group and Edge Promos represents a strategic effort to strengthen our position in direct importing and event marketing to better serve clients as a full-service promotional marketing agency,” says Dave Jackson, president of IC Group-Marketing. “We welcome [Edge Promos cofounders] Mark Ackerman and Ethan Aylett and their team into our company and anticipate additional expansion in this market.”

Edge Promos serves a regional client base from its offices in Draper. Ackerman and Aylett will remain with IC Group and lend their expertise to enhance IC Group’s growth efforts.
