I’m pleased to announce that IBBI has selected InnerWorkings as an exclusive partner to provide IBBI members collective group savings in print, POP, and promotional.
CHICAGO– InnerWorkings, Inc. (NASDAQ:INWK). Independent Boat Builders, Inc. (IBBI) today signed an agreement with InnerWorkings, Inc. for InnerWorkings to be the preferred IBBI endorsed supplier for commercial print, point-of- purchase, and promotional goods for its member base. InnerWorkings will offer IBBI members aggressive pricing by streamlining processes and reducing cost for the member base, which will also including a system of tiered rebates.
InnerWorkings has a similar business model of collective buying to IBBI and is the nation’s largest 3rd party buyer of print and promotional material with national clients such as Unilever, AT&T, PNC and hundreds more. However, more relevant to the boating and marine industry we serve over 30 hull builders, marine electronics companies and engine manufacturers including Yamaha, John Deere Power Systems, and Caterpillar. We also proudly already serve IBBI members Bertram, Maverick/Cobia/Pathfinder, Premier, and Scout directly, or through their agencies.
“My experience with InnerWorkings has been exceptional,” said Charlie Johnson, Dir. Marketing- Maverick Boat Company, Inc., manufacturer of the Maverick, Hewes, Pathfinder and Cobia brands and IBBI Member. “In terms of marketing materials, I haven’t found anything that they can’t handle yet. Plus, they’re on-time and very competitive.”
Be it flags, tees, hats, brochures, signage or tradeshow materials, InnerWorkings uses hundreds of millions of dollars in leveraged spend and a network of over 9,000 suppliers to achieve prices typically 10-20% lower than most in the industry. And, all are with guaranteed quality.
“We are pleased to offer our member-owners this new program,” reports IBBI President, Tom Broy. “This is a new contracted category for us to bring to our membership and we are excited to work with the team at InnerWorkings.”
