​MARKHAM, Ontario — Advantage CKN will change its name to Advantage Sales and Marketing Canada, effective April 1.

“As we approach the third anniversary since the acquisition of Crombie Kennedy Nasmark Inc. (CKN), our name will evolve from Advantage CKN to Advantage Sales and Marketing Canada,” said Henry Gerstel, President, ASM Canada. “This will provide a common name across North America and clearly identify our strong position in both the United States and Canada.”

On May 31, 2007, ASM Canada Inc., a Canadian subsidiary of Advantage Sales & Marketing LLC, acquired the business of Crombie Kennedy Nasmark Inc. (CKN).  Since the acquisition, the Canadian division has operated under the name of Advantage CKN—a combination of ASM with the heritage of Crombie Kennedy Nasmark (CKN).
