JDA Promo was founded almost 40 years ago on the principle “If you work hard every day, good things will happen”. With this goal in mind, JDA Promotional Solutions works hard every day to provide companies with branded products that will increase sales, workplace safety, employee wellness, loyalty, and brand recognition. Through our custom programs and products, we desire to help our customers achieve their goals to improve their business. If you grow, we grow.
Junior Davis & Associates, Inc. (JDA Promo) was established by William A. Davis, Jr. (Junior) in 1979 out of a desire to build his own business, be his own boss and take care of his family. Working out of the trunk of his car with just one catalog, Junior embarked on a journey becoming a distributor of specialty advertising/promotional products.
After over 30 years of building a successful business, Junior retired. Now two of his daughters, Kelly Vandiver and Gena Mueller, own and run the company. With over 35 years of combined industry experience, they are continuing the growth and success their father began. One recent part of this effort is JDA Promo’s WBENC certification as a woman owned and operated business.
In-House Operations = Excellent Customer Service
At JDA Promo we sell anything you can put a logo on that doesn’t have to be professionally installed. Our model is unique compared to most distributors. By having 2 in-house graphic artists and on site screen printing, embroidery and thermo seal we are able to fill our customer orders within 10 working days as compared to 3 to 4 weeks in the industry.
Each day we seek to not only meet the needs of our customers, consumers and employees but to exceed their expectations. People come first. We are dedicated to complying with all applicable laws and conducting our business ethically and with integrity. One rule is our overall guide – The Golden Rule – “Do unto others as you would have done to you.” We believe this is integral to not only being a socially responsible corporate citizen but to just being good people. For a complete copy of our Corporate Code of Responsible Conduct please contact us.
