Omni Sales to Acquire Rep Firm L.L. Wright Associates
April 23, 2012,
DALLAS - Dallas-based Omni Marketing and Sales Group has signed a definitive Letter of Intent to acquire Kansas City-based manufacturers rep firm L.L. Wright Associates. L.L. Wright Associates cover the MINK States territory, as well as North and South Dakota. The two organizations have more than 70 years combined experience of sales representation.
Omni will maintain its nearly 15,000-sq.-ft. showroom presence in Dallas at the World Trade Center, creating new opportunity for retailers and vendors alike. "Today, a number of regional representative groups have been forced to leave their market-based showrooms as the marts have either closed or re-purposed the spaces they formerly occupied, as was the case in Kansas City. Just one synergy of this new partnership is our ability to provide better exposure in the markets we cover to all of our combined agencies' lines where appropriate," said Jim Berk, president of Omni. "Omni believes merging with L.L. Wright provides great strategic benefits. L.L. Wright Associates, like Omni, has attracted a group of world class lines and seasoned professional sales associates and offers the expanded company an opportunity to partner with those lines to expand their reach in whatever territory we might be chosen to represent them."
