Quincy, MA , Feb. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stran & Company, Inc. ("Stran" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: STRN) (NASDAQ: STRNW), a leading outsourced marketing solutions provider that leverages its promotional products and loyalty incentive expertise, today announced the completion of its previously announced acquisition of GAP Promotions, LLC (“GAP Promo”) in an asset purchase transaction. 

Andy Shape, President and CEO of Stran, commented, “We continue to generate strong organic growth, while focusing on accretive acquisitions that are highly synergistic with our existing operations. This latest acquisition of GAP Promo adds an impressive roster of top-tier beverage and consumer packaged goods clients.  We also expect this acquisition will result in meaningful economies of scale. Looking ahead, we have a solid balance sheet, including approximately $42.4 million in gross proceeds from our recent IPO and private placement.
