In 1999, the Broudy family — Regina, Daniel and Michael — purchased the assets of a local screen-printing and embroidery business. While the business focused solely on the customization of products that were provided by customers, the family saw a huge opportunity for expansion into the promotional products industry.
They grew the business by adding other printing services, outside the scope of screen printing and embroidery, developing strong relationships with promotional product vendors, and investing in advanced technology.
Early on, Clayton Kendall quickly became known as the cost effective solution for branded merchandise, printed products, graphic design, and web development. The company's focus, then and now, is to develop comprehensive promotional marketing programs for businesses (from small start ups and large corporations) that are designed to organize and enhance their branded merchandising efforts.
In 2002, the family established a new division of Clayton Kendall called rushIMPRINT. This division is specifically designed to fulfill promotional product orders that are needed in a "rush" – www.rushIMPRINT.com. They expanded the business in 2008 into Canada – www.rushimprint.ca.
In 2009, Clayton Kendall moved into a new state-of-the-art 30,000 square foot facility, located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania which includes office space, a show room, a conference area, and a warehouse.
Clayton Kendall is certified by the nationally recognized non-profit Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) as a Woman Business Enterprise (WBE). Clayton Kendall also works with other minority and woman-owned businesses (MWBE) nationally.
Clayton Kendall continues to develop effective promotional programs for companies, both large and small, across the United States and Canada. As the company continues to grow year after year, they never lose sight of their family-oriented philosophy. This is extremely important to them which is why all customers and employees are treated like they are part of the family.
