Zink Acquires JMA

In a move that enhances its product knowledge in the furniture area, independent manufacturer’s rep firm The Zink Corporation has acquired John Manson & Associates.

Since its inception in 2004 as John Manson & Associates, JMA has represented furniture and tabletop manufacturers in Illinois and Wisconsin. “JMA lays the foundation for a focused and deep furniture division,” said Jim Zink, managing partner for Zink Corporation. “We know having specific sales teams and expertise in equipment, tabletop/smallwares, and now furniture will deliver more value to the operators, dealers, and designers in our markets.”

An employee-owned company, Zink has a team of more than 80 associates with offices throughout Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, West Virginia, Kentucky and Western Pennsylvania.
