Axis Promotions is a proud shareholder in IGC International, the first global purchasing organization formed for promotional products.
IGC International has been active since 1956 as a buying association. It operates as the central contact for multinational companies to buy promotional products and services, promotional items and business gifts from one global contract partner. Multinationals can strengthen their marketing mix while maintaining the local language and culture by purchasing service and expertise within the complex chain of promotional products. With large available stocks from Europe, U.S. / Canada and Asia, each country can be served decisively.
Simultaneously, IGC International reduces the risks of purchasing promotional products. This is important because promotional products can strengthen a corporate image, but can also cause damage if the products are unsafe, can harm the environment or if they are manufactured by children. IGC International works only with controlled factories in the Far East and has the required knowledge of codes of conduct and local regulations.
IGC International not only ensures a more efficient global purchasing process, but also reduces the risks that companies incur when buying promotional products. Transparency within the supply chain and on the market, respecting codes of conduct and local regulations, and standing firm for product safety form the backbone of IGC. So far 50 companies from 47 countries with a combined turnover of $840 million have joined the new cooperation.
