NVR founder Nick Vance purchased Fox Cities from Jill Kramer with an intent to expand both Wisconsin businesses. As a result of the acquisition, both companies continue to employ all their current teams and serve their existing clients while improving workflows and delivering higher-quality products and services.
“Anytime two companies with similar offerings and a strong shared focus on supporting the community can come together, there are so many opportunities to learn from one another and grow together,” says Vance, who has nearly two decades of experience in the branding industry. “It’s really a natural progression for both businesses.”
Kramer, who founded Fox Cities Embroidery in 2006 and led it through an expansion in 2015, will remain heavily involved in the company.
“I love this company and what we do, so when I decided to take a step back to have more time with my family, I was thrilled to find Nick to take the reins because we share so many beliefs and values about how businesses should serve their community,” explains Kramer. “I trust Nick to take care of my team and my clients and know that they’ll have a similar experience under his leadership.”
According to Vance, NVR Branding offers a collection of services that aligns with Fox Cities Embroidery’s signature embroidery and screen-printing services. Additionally, NVR has a track record of solving business and branding challenges with high-tech solutions, which Vance plans to streamline and improve within both companies.
“The ink is still drying, and the best part of it is that I can draw on Jill’s deep-seated experience. There’s so much to be excited about, and what makes me happiest is being able to keep all of these jobs right here in Northeast Wisconsin,” adds Vance.
NVR Branding curates, sources, and produces a wide range of custom-embroidered attire, promotional products, and printed materials, including business cards, sales tools, and trade show signage.
Fox Cities Embroidery specializes in embroidered and screen-printed garments for schools and businesses and can produce over 750 garments per day, either embroidered or printed, and offers a storefront to support the local community.
