Koozie Group acquires HotLine Products
SLEEPY EYE — Koozie Group (previously BIC Graphic), a portfolio company of H.I.G. Capital, has announced the completion of the acquisition of HotLine Products.
HotLine Products is well-known in the promotional products industry for their wide selection of calendars including appointment, desk, executive, and commercial styles, planners/journals and custom capabilities as well as offerings featuring Norman Rockwell, Saturday Evening Post and David Maass, among others. Their focus on safety and responsible printing processes, using recycled materials and paper from sustainable sources, also aligns with Koozie Group’s enhanced commitment to sustainability and social responsibility.
“Koozie Group and HotLine are two of the top names in promotional calendars who also have similar standards around quality and sustainability. That alignment, along with our Sleepy Eye team’s expertise in calendar printing and production, made this acquisition a great opportunity for us to take another step toward our future vision,” said David Klatt, CEO with Koozie Group.
Koozie Group is committed to keeping the HotLine product assortment as it exists today for the 2022 calendar season. HotLine items will be available under the Koozie Group portfolio, produced out of the Koozie Group facility in Sleepy Eye, MN and serviced by sales and service teams who have a 20-year consecutive record of winning the ASI Distributor Choice Awards in the calendar category.
