Satori Capital has announced its investment in Zorch International, Inc, (“Zorch”). Zorch, based in Chicago, Illinois, is an innovative, tech-enabled designer and distributor of branded merchandise and promotional products. Zorch’s differentiated approach to servicing corporate programs is gaining widespread acceptance in the marketplace and has yielded more than 30 percent revenue growth during the last two years.
“Zorch takes an entirely new approach to branded merchandise fulfillment,” said Satori co-founder Sunny Vanderbeck. “The company has developed a powerful, technology-enabled approach that leverages the capabilities of its supply chain, improving efficiency and reducing costs for its customers. It’s simply a better way to operate, and over the long term, we believe Zorch will dramatically outperform its competitors.”
Zorch uses a powerful technology application and a streamlined service model, significantly reducing the need for bulk inventory and densely staffed fulfillment teams. Zorch’s model also includes high quality, dedicated e-stores for each customer that allow customers to communicate directly with suppliers and create a single source for logos and artwork, both of which dramatically reduce order errors. The e-stores can also integrate with customers’ procurement systems and freight carrier accounts, reducing order and shipping costs.
“In the branded merchandise industry, every distributor operates the same way — except Zorch,” said company CEO Mike Wolfe. “We have created a transparent, streamlined, single-source solution to help large organizations order more efficiently, protect and promote their brands, and — most importantly — save money.”
In addition to the benefits it provides to customers, Zorch also embraces practices and principles that align with the tenets of conscious capitalism. For example, the company provides an engaging culture for its employees, has been named to the Advertising Specialty Institute’s “Best Places to Work” honor roll, and was named a Top 40 distributor during 2017.
