Tervis Ups Company Donation from 5% to
10% for Pink Ribbon Sales
Nambé Announces Dinnerware Partnership
with Gibson Overseas, Inc.
For the month of October, Tervis Tumbler will double the
percentage of pink ribbon sales that it donates to breast cancer
research – from five percent of sales to 10 percent of sales.
The Tervis® collection of pink ribbon tumblers
are part of a year round program where the
company donates five percent of these sales
to help find a cure for breast cancer. Tervis
prides themselves on their collection of
insulated tumblers featuring various pink
ribbon designs. Since 2007, Tervis has been
an avid supporter of breast cancer research,
donating more than $60,000.
SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO—In an effort to expand its presence
in the dinnerware category, Nambé announces a dinnerware
licensing partnership with U.S. tabletop brand Gibson Overseas,
Inc. Effective March 2011, Gibson will handle manufacturing,
warehousing, distribution and sales for all Nambé dinnerware.
“We feel that there are multiple benefits to this license,” explains
Robert Varakian, President and CEO of Nambé. “It will allow us
at Nambé to continue to increase our focus and expansion of
our core product categories, as well as experience expansion
of Nambé branded dinnerware under Gibson’s guidance and
experience in that product category. We feel the strength of the
Nambé brand umbrella will continue to grow and are exploring
other opportunities for additional product categories that could
be appropriate for the Nambé brand.”
“Making a positive difference is a
part of the Tervis culture,” says
President and CEO, Laura Spencer. “It is important to
support the community in this fight and help support
the effort to reduce the numbers of individuals who are
impacted every day.”
As part of a seamless transition, the existing Nambé dinnerware
patterns will continue to be shipped in the same Nambé packaging
and under the same Nambé brand. Additionally, Gibson will
develop new patterns and an expanded accessories program.
Tervis encourages everyone to join in the effort to raise
awareness for breast cancer research. The pink ribbon tumblers
are a simple way to proudly display your support of the fight
against breast cancer.
“We are delighted with this opportunity,” adds Sal Gabbay,
President at Gibson. “We are committed to embracing the valued
brand equity and the essence of Nambé and are determined to
meet and exceed customer expectation.”

opportunities as we continue to build our business.”
