About Us

Manatee Marketing & Promotional was founded in July 2000.

Since the beginning, we have fostered the strong beliefs of QUALITY, HONESTY, INTEGRITY and SERVICE - which we call 'QHIS'.

These beliefs are practiced in everything we do, not just at Manatee, but in our personal lives as well.  But don't take our word for it, just ask any of our customers that we have had for many years ~ or you can do what they have done... trust in us, our creativity, our knowledge, experience, and what we can do for you!

  • OWNERSHIP:  Louisiana owned, and based in Ponchatoula, Louisiana (just north of New Orleans).
  • EXPERIENCE:  We have over 20 years of experience, knowledge, and creative ideas. Let us not forget all of the industry training, as well as a personal commitment to learning more and more each day.
  • We will be respectful, not only to you, but will respect your time too.
  • We will be courteous, compassionate and understanding to your needs.
  • We pride ourselves on the high level of service we provide our clients.
  • We treat every one as we want to be treated... fairly, squarely, with honesty and integrity - It's a win win!

  • PARTNERSHIP: When you partner with MANATEE, you'll notice what a positive difference "da MANATEE" makes. Our ideas and commitment to excellence may surprise you! Because, see we like to do it right the first time.

  • CUSTOMERS: We have customers from 'mom and pops' to Fortune 500 companies. Our customers are local, regional, national and international. And, we have been doing business with a number of our clients for over 19 years, which is why over 80% of our business comes from our current customers or referrals.

  • SUCCESS: We credit our business success to our customers, as they have given us the opportunity to work with them, and foster long term relationships with them. You'll also find that our reputation is impeccable. In addition, our customer referrals have enabled our business to grow. And, in return, for quality products and outstanding customer service we retain those long-term relationships, and possibly get to foster some new ones too.

  • GEIGER: We are an affiliate of Geiger, one of the largest and most progressive companies in the promotional industry, and the largest privately held promotional products distributor in the world. Wouldn't you call that an ADVANTAGE over others? Yep, we would too!!


    We have been told many times... "we love what we do, and it shows".
    We realize that you have a choice, so we would like to say...
  • "Thank you for visiting our web site!"
  • "Thank you for considering MANATEE as a trusted vendor!"
  • "Thank you in advance for letting us exceed your expectations!"
