June 21, 2011 - PRLog -- WACO, TX -- Nearly 40 years ago in an anti-smoking lobbying effort by Waco physician Dr. Wayman R. Spence, every member of Congress received an ashtray he made that had a pair of lungs perched on top.  Smoke channeled through one lung and turned it a pukish yellow-brown while the other lung stayed clear.  The prank garnered national attention, and the Waco-based health education catalog business, Health Edco, launched in earnest.

Since then, WRS Group, Ltd., it's Health Edco, and other divisions have become the go-to resource in the medical and healthcare industries nationally and internationally.  But the company wanted more.  With strong Central Texas roots, WRS Group wanted to bring its long-standing manufacturing and marketing experience into the local market.

To that end, WRS Group, Ltd. announced today that it has acquired Waco-based QTI Powers, a custom merchandise company that specializes in creative graphics, embroidery, screen-printing and promotional products. WRS Group renamed the company QTI Promotions and Apparel.

For 28 years, the company has been well-known in Central Texas for exceptional customer service and quality merchandise.  To ensure that continues, former owners Randy Cox, Nancy Cox and Jeffrey Paul will manage current and future customer relationships.

“The synergies between WRS and QTI Promotions and Apparel fit our growth strategy perfectly, and now we are poised to be the biggest player in the promotion products and services industry offering creative solutions and a product line unlike any other business in Central Texas,” said Scott Salmans, owner of WRS Group. “More than a logo on pens or shirts, QTI Promotions and Apparel is now a one-stop shop that develops and executes full-scale campaigns.  The company can now take an event or promotional opportunity to its highest level by being able to manufacture custom pieces to emphasize the businesses message in a unique way.”

The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
