Effective January 1, 2014, FFR-DSI, Inc. is rebranding as FFR Merchandising, Inc.
FFR Merchandising —formerly FFR-DSI and Fasteners for Retail—will continue to provide Total Retail Solutions ® for in-store merchandising. Since 1962, the company has steadily evolved into a leading designer, marketer, and value-added supplier of retail merchandising, loss prevention, and operational efficiency solutions that provide substantial value to customers across a wide variety of end markets.
The company's name change is the next step in that evolution, reflecting FFR's broad capabilities in providing solutions for in-store merchandising.
"FFR is extremely proud of our 50-plus year history as a leader in the merchandising industry," said Stan Burson, president and CEO. "Our new name better reflects the breadth and depth of our in-store merchandising offerings. FFR Merchandising offers more than 10,000 unique in-stock and made-to-order merchandising products, hundreds of new products annually, and creative custom-design solutions."
"But while our name has changed, our approach to business has not. Our more than 300 employees are still committed to providing the broadest offerings and best possible service to our valued customers in the retail and display industries."
According to Burson, apart from a new website URL ( www.FFR.com ) and a new name on FFR's documents, the name change will not impact customers. All existing addresses and phone numbers for the company remain the same.
FFR Merchandising, Inc. leads the industry in providing Total Retail Solutions ® designed to increase sales, improve category management, limit shrink and reduce labor at the point of sale. These products include merchandising and loss prevention systems; label, sign and literature holders; product merchandisers and display components; as well as fresh area merchandising products, supplies and backroom organization solutions. FFR offers start-to-finish solution delivery, including consultation, design, prototyping, production, fulfillment and purchase consolidation. From the front door to the backroom, FFR provides merchandising, display, and efficiency tools for the entire store.
