Promotional Products Business Soars High Under Young Leadership in 2007
In its sixth year of business, Namifiers LLC has established national presence in the promotional products industry under the direction of five executive officers, each of which is under the age of 30, with an average age of 26.
This young manufacturing team has either doubled or tripled company revenues every year since its founding in 2001, establishing a rare 200% growth curve and launching itself into the coveted category of multi-million dollar companies.
Namifiers LLC, formerly the The Nametag Source LLC, was founded by CEO and President Bryan L. Welton at the age of 23. At the time, he sold custom engraved name tags, lanyards, name plates, plaques, and personalized gifts out of a 10'x10' basement office. Welton immediately employed a youthful and aggressive business model that incorporated new promotional products, perfected the production processes, and thrived on high principles of Customer Service.
In 2002 Welton hired 21 year old Christopher Jensen as the training Chief Operations Officer for the business. When he came aboard, Jensen had recently won a local business plan competition. The remaining three executive officers joined the team in 2005: Nick Vance as VP of Sales, Sean Fitzgerald as VP of Operations, and Brad Gasaway as VP of Marketing.
Their rapid growth necessitated moving the business four times within Utah County to accommodate more machinery and inventory, all of which Welton bootstrapped without partners or investors. In February of 2006, The Nametag Source LLC moved into its current 80,000 square foot facility in Springville, UT. Shortly thereafter, his young executive team planned and implemented a corporate name change to Namifiers LLC, in order to better reflect expanding product lines of lanyards, printed vinyl banners, nametag badge holders, t-shirts, and embroidery among others.
Namifiers, LLC credits much of its success to building positive customer relationships, where needs are recognized and satisfied in a timely manner. From listening to general feedback within the industry, customers were calling for high standards of quality production, accessible customer service, and competitive pricing. While they worked aggressively to fill these needs, they also took it one step further and added the elements of speed and convenience to the overall equation. They successfully pioneered the promotional industry with Same-Day production and easy online ordering of personalized products. This ultimately secured their niche in the market, being the only U.S.-based manufacturer that could print and ship thousands of customized ID products the same day they were ordered.
Namifiers LLC is now 50,000 clients strong, including services to over half the Fortune 500 companies. They can be found on the web at Namifiers.com and Customer Support is available via phone, fax or email Monday – Friday from 7:00 am to 6:00pm MST. They can fill miscellaneous requests for customized products and have worldwide shipping capabilities.
