A local promotional products company has purchased a building downtown to support its expanding operations.

Karen Scarpino, owner and president of Promotional Impact and its sister company, Green Giftz, has acquired the 6,000-square-foot building in Grand Rapids, at 532 Ottawa Ave. NW, according to NAI Wisinski of West Michigan today.

The building in the city’s North Monroe neighborhood was most recently a location for Vector Distribution, a screen-printing company.

Promotional Impact and Green Giftz currently operate in a 2,000-square-foot space in the nearby Brass Works Building.

“We love being in downtown Grand Rapids and witness growth and progress first-hand every day," Scarpino said. "We have such pride in downtown Grand Rapids that we wanted to have true ownership and take root in this community. We see this building…as a true asset to the growth of our organization.”

The brands sell “earth-friendly promotional products.” They serve clients such as Steelcase, Herman Miller and Amway.

NAI Wisinski’s Mary Anne Wisinski-Rosely and Jason Makowski represented the building’s sellers, Tom Korest and Peter Mason, and Signature Associate’s Joe Rizqallah represented Scarpino.
