We are a corporate branded merchandise / marketing services firm founded in 1992 by Howard Schwartz -CEO. That year, in modest style (actually in a bedroom of his parent’s home), he established the HDS operational strategy and company headquarters – driven by a vision for achieving success.
Honesty, Dedication, & Service … constituted the core of what he believed every prospective corporate client wanted and needed to realize the potential from promotional merchandise marketing efforts.
This belief has proven itself time and again through 25 years of substantial growth. Today, HDS ranks in the Top 1% of corporate branded merchandise distributors with a client base of 550+, ranging in size from local, regional, national, and international. Also our extensive investment in print services allows us to be the client’s one stop shop. With offices in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Phoenix, Kansas City and Lehigh Valley, we can provide our services to companies from coast to coast.
We strive to be the best we can be…and the industry has noticed.
