Newton Manufacturing was founded in 1909 by George Newton after he invented the “Safety Magazine Match Safe”. The company manufactured these and several other promotional products that were sold nationwide. In 1943, a fire destroyed our manufacturing facilities. With resources being dedicated to the military needs of World War II, rebuilding was not an option.
It was decided that the company would cease its manufacturing operations and focus on expanding the national distribution network that was started in the lean years of the Great Depression. The “Manufacturing” name was left intact for brand recognition. Since then, we have grown into the full service promotional advertising provider that we are today.
Throughout our history, we have provided innovative solutions for businesses while building a reputation for premier service. We invite you to take a minute to see how we deliver on our promise of “Way More Than You Expected.”
