PALM HARBOR, FL -- G&J Marketing and Sales, a nationwide vending brokerage based here, has agreed to acquire Ohio-based Cross Marketing, effective Jan. 1.
G&J said the merger will carry on the sales and service tradition started by the late Jerry Cross Sr., who in 2003 founded company that serves Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and western Pennsylvania. The industry veteran, who died last summer, was joined in the family business by Judy Cross and Jerry Jr. Earlier in his career, he had worked for Imperial Bondware and International Cup.
G&J has hired sales representatives Jim Bombeck and Steve Niemeier to cover Ohio and Kentucky, respectively.
