Expanding Markets: Evergreen Enterprises Acquires SC Sports

May 03, 2012 Evergreen Enterprises 0 Comments

Through the recently completed 2012 NFL Draft, teams across the league picked up some promising new talent in preparation for the upcoming season. These players from established institutions have proven themselves ready for the "big leagues." In a similar way, we at Evergreen Enterprises will sometimes recruit some fresh faces into our product lineup from companies whose offerings are compatible with and complementary to our own.

Our updated SC Sports catalog.
Last month, Evergreen completed the acquisition of the SC Sports product line from Scottish Christmas, Inc., a leading provider of holiday, plush, and home products. Operationally speaking, the SC Sports division will continue to function out of its existing facility in Pocahontas, Arkansas, and several key personnel will be welcomed onto the Evergreen team. Current SC Sports customers will be served by the in-house Evergreen sales force, covering the U.S. and Canada.

Just a sample of over 7,500 SC Sports items!

 As NFL teams fill important roles through the draft, we're excited about the new potential markets that SC Sports product will allow us to reach. First and foremost is the ability to be a star player on the field of licensed holiday merchandise. The SC Sports portfolio includes a huge assortment of items in the holiday decor category, including pillows, stockings, wreaths, and tabletop, as well as numerous ornaments in various materials such as glass, plush, acrylic, and EVA. Our sports business is now a true year-round opportunity! We are also thrilled to also be gaining several new items for those younger fans, such as children's toys, nightlights, bath sets and more.

After increasing our total number of licensed sports products to almost 5,000 through the acquisition of Team Sports America last fall, this recent move to bring SC Sports onto the Evergreen roster will more than double our total number of sports products. The opportunity to offer over 12,000 licensed items from the NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, and Collegiate teams is, according to Business Development Manager Chris Wornom, "a significant step in our strategy to offer our customers more exclusive products and become a leader in the sports product category." All of these items will also be available later this month via our business-to-business web site at www.myevergreen.com.

Approaching 20 years as a company, Evergreen is now in a better position than ever to become a "one-stop-shop" for all of our valuable national and independent retailers. With the acquisition of SC Sports, we are eagerly looking forward to helping our retailers grow further in the licensed sports product market with championship-level sales opportunities.
