NESCO: Your Key Ingredient NESCO has been known since 1931 for the brand's wide variety of small kitchen electrics. Originally known as the creator of the Roaster Oven, today it is a big play- er in vacuum sealers, dehydrators and roaster ovens. A lot has changed in the 90 years since the brand's inception and NESCO is swiftly keeping up. After NESCO's parent company The Metal Ware Corporation underwent a merger in late 2016, the brand took on a facelift with a new look and feel. NESCO's tagline is Your Key Ingredient and its consumer communications and product innovations are focused on showing consumers how NESCO fits in as a key part of their lives. Starting from the outside, NESCO's new packaging won the 2019 American Package Design Award from Graphic Design USA. The packaging look and feel, created by NESCO's in-house mar- keting team, is centered around showing consumers not only the features of each product, but also the ways in which it can be used to create special and memorable meals. Working off this branding, NESCO is redesigning its marketing materials and content to follow suit. The brand redesigned its website to give users a more friendly and informative experi- ence where consumers can find recipes, blog posts and instructions on NESCO's full line to make informed buying choic- es. Extending its reach into consumers' ever-growing web consumption, NESCO recently signed a new email marketing platform to increase engagement and build communication with longtime, loyal customers through carefully seg- mented and targeted sends. To build content, the brand is putting more emphasis on its ambassador pro- gram. Starting in 2016, NESCO teamed up with TV personali- ty The Cooking Mom, Amy Hanten, to use NESCO products on her morning shows across the United States. Amy can also be spotted at the NESCO booth #L12702 at the show. In 2020, NESCO plans to expand its brand ambassador program, putting more emphasis on building rela- tionships to tap into new demographics. NESCO's plans to connect with con- sumers extend past the content realm. The brand recently hired on new Product Manager Geralyn Braun to expand its line of products to fit in with the evolving modern consumer. Braun will work with domestic and global manufacturing teams to drive the brand in innovation and quality. Based on extensive and ongoing market research, NESCO will be adding to its product line based on con- sumers' anticipated demands in func- tions, features and color through both new-to- market and added-value products. For example, NESCO is adding to its market-leading line of dehydrators with a compact "junior" dehydrator that easily fits into modern, smaller living spaces, while the entire line of dehydrators includes sample packs of jerky seasoning and cure, to get users started on making their own homemade jerky. The goal is to repeatedly drive consumers back to the retailer for consumables long after the initial purchase is complete. While the market is constantly and consistently evolving, NESCO has been reemerging as a brand that continues to be consumers' key ingredient through its new branding and product initiatives.

For 2020, Grant Howard brings to the market a new range of glass tabletop products. Our new motto for this line of products to be unveiled during the show is "go in style while helping keep harm- ful materials out of our precious oceans and crowded landfills."

Perfect for daily use or parties!
