Quality Certification Alliance (QCA), the promotional products industry’s only independent, non-governmental accreditation organization, announces today that The Clouser Group, located in Hershey, PA., has joined the QCA Distributor Advocacy Council.

The Clouser Group, founded in 2010, is a client-focused, marketing and promotional consulting firm whose mission is to help clients achieve outstanding results for their marketing and brand-building efforts. Clouser now joins a core group of 13 leading promotional products distributors focused on furthering THE industry standard which ensures suppliers are ascribing to a proactive, comprehensive, compliance solution.

“The Clouser staff, with extensive industry experience, strives to build trust, respect and long-term relationships with the companies they serve, with an ultimate goal of inspiring performance within these organizations,” said Clouser president Ralph Clouser. “We are equipped to be a strategic marketing partner, and are continually providing our customers with innovative ideas and products in the marketplace.”

Jeff Jacobs, QCA executive director, added, “The addition of The Clouser Group continues the comprehensive restructuring of the membership of the DAC we started last year. With a new level of commitment by both suppliers and distributors to mutually raise the bar, it is effectively the only way to ensure supply chain transparency and control.”
