ShowcaseSource.com in Columbus, OH, has achieved success by following a
very simple formula: it succeeds when its customers succeed.
The company was founded by Les Bresge, former CEO of one of the largest lighting manufacturers in Canada and his partner Harold Mandel, a former senior vice president of Sears. They were joined by Mike Rand, who brought a strong marketing background to the organization . All remain actively involved with the organization.
Parent company Can-Bramar Ltd. was launched in 1995 in Toronto, Canada, and by 2000 expanded to the United States with the online presence Showcasesource.com. The company is also active in Latin America.
“The original vision for our company was to produce and distribute modular display systems that are affordable for the independent retailer,” says General Manager Stacy Ewert. “Our company has worked hand in hand with clients to provide them with the fixtures that they are looking for to grow their business.”
Many of ShowcaseSource’s new product offerings have been
a result of feedback and requests from its customers. “We
continually are looking forward and creating products that
will enhance our clients’ current display options,” Ewert says.
“Since our displays are modular, our clients have many options
available to them at affordable prices. We are focused at
expanding our customer base and dealer network.”
ShowcaseSource’s target market is what Ewert refers to as the Vape and Smoke industry. We have had a huge positive response from this industry, and we are working toward helping this industry grow and be successful by providing affordable displays that are unique.” The store display industry as a whole, she adds, is continually changing “and we pride ourselves in staying ahead of the industry. We focus on independent retailers and small/medium chains.”
Recently, we have developed two new items specifically with the Vape and Smoke industry in mind,” Ewert says. “We are very excited to present these items at the ASD Marketplace show. Although we specialize in display cases, we also offer metal shelving, accessories and other retail store fixtures and can provide a one-stop shop for our clients.”
