Zekelman Industries’ Authenticity Makes an Impression

Zekelman Industries has received silver recognition in the Direct Mail, Flat or Dimensional category from the Association of National Advertisers (ANA) B2 Awards for its “Make It Here” campaign. The ANA B2 Awards celebrate large and small B2B marketers that drive business results in the rapidly changing B2B industry. Zekelman created mailers that could be displayed in the workplaces of brands that shared its domestic manufacturing vision. As Zekelman’s lead agency, The Mx Group is delighted by the recognition of this national campaign that manifests personal connections and advocates for domestic manufacturing. The campaign earned more than 300,000 impressions and reached audiences far beyond the manufacturing sector.

Over the years, the manufacturing industry has seen a steady increase of jobs being sent overseas. This issue was further complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic and its interruption of global supply chains. To thank stakeholders who supported domestic manufacturing, Zekelman fashioned mailers to display messages that inspire the true purpose of its work. The posters were designed as thank-you letters detailing how domestic manufacturing builds community, creates jobs and lessens dependency on foreign supply chains.

The campaign helped Zekelman reach beyond its typical market. With a campaign message rooted in a human truth shared by brands nationwide, Zekelman Industries incited new conversations with existing customers and found a broader audience with a shared mission. The Mx Group is proud to partner with companies like Zekleman Industries that make an impact on B2B and the rest of the world.
