FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The Plumb Club is pleased to announce its newest members, Color Merchants Inc. and The Kingswood Company. Both companies will be exhibiting in the Plumb Club pavilion at JCK Las Vegas, June 5-8, 2017. A premier anchor of the show, the pavilion includes 43 Plumb Club members exhibiting this year.
Color Merchants and The Kingswood Company complement and enhance the extensive offerings The Plumb Club provides as a unique coalition of important suppliers spanning all facets of the jewelry, diamond, and watch industries. They join The Plumb Club at an exciting time as it launches a new strategic plan designed to expand the organization’s reach year-round, broaden its retail community, and increase its influence in helping to shape the future of the trade.
“The addition of these two members supports our new strategic plan and ongoing commitment to provide all jewelry retailers a single resource of important and responsible suppliers that can help them increase business opportunities, not only at the JCK show, but throughout the year,” says Lawrence Hess, executive director of The Plumb Club.
Color Merchants is a leading supplier of diamond and color gemstone jewelry. Founded in 1987 in New York City, the company is well known for creating highly marketable collections, from its classic birthstone styles to its signature brand of beautiful diamond fashion jewelry, Brevani. Among its claims to fame are unparalleled insights into what sells, with a vast inventory and efficient customer response for retailers to always keep those products in stock.
“The Plumb Club has been on our radar for years,” says Keven Peck, founder and president of Color Merchants. He says the timing was right to become a member as his son, Jordan, and daughter, Allison recently joined the company. “I want to make sure they’re in the right circles to help move the company forward.” He hails The Plumb Club as a proactive group of companies that promote each other. “The energy is very positive.” He also cheers the pavilion as a comfortable setting to do business. “We’re excited to be in The Plumb Club, which offers retailers one-stop-shopping in the variety of vendors it represents.”
The Kingswood Company is the industry’s leading supplier of private-label jewelry-care products. Based in Columbus, Ohio since 1956, the company offers turnkey product line development for merchants looking for unique packaging and design options with time-tested, proprietary cleaning formulas, supported by world-class customer service. Both its products and business practices reflect a dedication to environmental sustainability and community improvement.
“Our company has experienced tremendous growth the past five years, and joining The Plumb Club was a logical next step,” says Kristie Nicolosi, president and CEO of The Kingswood Company. “The Plumb Club is a premier destination for sophisticated retailers that understand the benefit of a private-label jewelry care line and how it can enhance their retail environment and benefit customers.” In today’s rapidly changing B2B environment, Nicolosi believes The Plumb Club’s updated mission offers great opportunities for members. “We are thrilled to be part of The Plumb Club today and its plans for the future.”
