With more than 30 locations across the United States and beyond, Design Group Americas has the facilities, talent, teams and infrastructure to support some of the world’s largest retail customers.
Design Group Americas’ team and offices are structured to build on leadership positions and grow our share in the value, mass, upscale, and speciality channels.
With strong retailer relationships, Design Group Americas’ aim is to drive profitable growth through exceptional customer service, industry-leading innovation, and great value. Strengths in product innovation and design, combined with low-cost manufacturing, sourcing and logistics, enable Design Group to sustain and develop excellent partnerships with major retailers throughout the world.
We are proud of the support facilities we have developed, efficient administrative procedures, vast warehousing facilities, rapid response to customer requirements and a sales force which is sensitive to and focused on their needs. We are the largest manufacturer in the market space adjacent to everyday single cards. We intend to continue to aggressively consolidate that space.
