OneCoast partners with Design Group Americas

OneCoast, an omnichannel wholesale sales and marketing company, and Design Group Americas, representing the C.R. Gibson Signature and The Gift Wrap Company brands, announced a long-term partnership that will be effective June 6, 2022. 

C.R. Gibson Signature products

Design Group Americas designs, manufactures, sources and distributes a broad variety of branded and private label consumer products in the seasonal, stationery, gift, craft and toy categories. Design Group Americas sells products online and in store throughout North and South America, Europe and as far as Australia. It also partners with many retailers and focuses its teams and business to support customer partnerships.

In its focused sales and marketing model, OneCoast’s mission is to partner with a limited number of vendors that center on brand and quality, both in product development and operation efficiencies in key business categories. The addition of Design Group Americas reflects the company’s commitment to bringing leading, on-trend, customer-focused vendors to their current 34,000 independent retail customers.  

“We are thrilled about our partnership with Design Group Americas,” Majda Rensberger, president of OneCoast, said. “Bringing back the C.R. Gibson brands that we previously represented 10 years along with the addition of The Gift Wrap Company, broadens our product offering in gift, baby, stationery and paper. Furthermore, the addition of C.R. Gibson Signature and The Gift Wrap Company adds to our incredible vendor line up giving our retailers more on trend products for their consumers.” 

At Design Group Americas has a history spanning back more than 100 years, its story can be traced back to Hysil Manufacturing Company, which pioneered the gift wrap industry. Since then, Design Group Americas have grown organically and through acquisition to become a leader in the categories they sell in and have adapted to succeed in the rapidly changing retail climate.

“We are excited to be reunited with the OneCoast team. They have a great history with C.R. Gibson, and they are the perfect partner to nurture C.R. Gibson Signature through its relaunch and rebranding” said Julie Smith, chief marketing officer for Design Group Americas. “We are also adding a new portfolio of product with gifting and The Gift Wrap Company that we are confident OneCoast will embrace and drive growth through new retail partners.”
