TODAY, Frank Mayer and Associates is still very much
hands-on, with associates embracing both creativity and
technology to produce in-store merchandising and kiosks
such as the SoloHealth. What began as a one-man sign-painting business in 1931 added screen printing to its services,
and the rest is history.
The company has evolved into an in-store merchandising
and interactive kiosk company with an innovative approach
that transforms concepts and ideas into reality.
Owned and operated by the company, Midwest Assembly,
Warehouse and Distribution—a 200,000-sq.-ft. nearby
facility—coordinates production, warehousing and distribution of P-O-P display and kiosk programs. The facility handles
multiple assembly lines, including large-scale program rollouts
and volume needs. Frank Mayer and Associates offers
end-to-end solutions and resources, from design,
engineering, and prototyping through production,
assembly, and distribution.
“We provide a creative, responsive, and thorough
approach to every in-store merchandising or interactive kiosk program,” says Michael Mayer, president.
“Our mission is to create an environment that focuses
on turning targeted in-store merchandising initiatives
into guaranteed results.”
1950s AND ’60s:
Nothing high-tech here.

company based in Grafton, Wis.
