Gill Studios is pleased to announce the Barton Nelson transaction is complete. The new company will be known as Bebco (Gill Bebco LLC) and will reopen on September 2nd.
It is exciting that we are able to partner with another strong name in the industry, whose 53 years of exceptional quality and service has earned so many loyal, established customers. With our combined expertise in adhesives and printing we felt this was a very strong business fit and as Gill Bebco, we look forward to serving the industry shortly.
We have been working hard and quickly to rehire employees to preserve the Bebco expertise and passion. Bebco will continue to operate out of the facility in Kansas City, MO, just 10 miles from Gill Studios. We are also very excited to announce that Gill-line, as a USA manufacturer, has decided to build and maintain the necessary equipment here in the Bebco facility to ensure all of Bebco’s products will be Made in the USA.
We also want to share our progress and keep distributors up to date on when products will be available to them. To ensure we provide an exceptional Gill Bebco product and experience we will be launching products in stages, including Adhesive Notes and Scratch Pads as early as September 2nd, Adhesive and Non-Adhesive Cubes September 15th and 12 Month Calendar Desk Pads November 1st.
