NVR Branding Founder Nick Vance Purchases Fox Cities Embroidery
with Plans to Expand Both Local Businesses

GREEN BAY, Wis. October 5, 2020 — NVR Branding founder Nick Vance purchased Fox Cities Embroidery from Jill Kramer with an intent to expand both local businesses. As a result, both companies continue to employ all members of their current teams and serve their existing clients, all while improving workflows and delivering even 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,” said 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 that more than doubled the facility, 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,” said 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.”

Vance’s original company, NVR Branding offers an impressive repertoire of services that fits directly with Fox Cities Embroidery’s signature service of embroidering and screen-printing branded attire for companies, schools, clubs, and more. Additionally, NVR has an excellent track record of solving business and branding challenges with high-tech solutions, which Vance plans to use to streamline and improve upon both companies’ reputation for excellence.

“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,” said Vance.
