Quality custom socks produced & delivered in less than 2 weeks
In keeping with Alation’s NASA space theme & the gumption to target and accomplish the impossible, Onyx was asked to deliver custom, space themed, compression socks in less than two weeks for an EVENT! Working closely with our “we can do anything” minded business partner and buyer, Dave Stevens, Onyx set to work…and we made it happen. In fact, we delivered a day early! The bulk of the socks shipped from our Turkish manufacturer direct to 2 different events in Orlando and Boston, and the remainder of the product has been warehoused and will drop-ship to future, national events.
Socks are popular right now, but Alation’s compressions socks stood out as the best, for quality, function, and consumer response. “We had the idea to make compression socks, a more technical product (and harder to find)…and this differentiator helped us to stand out!” said Dave Stevens. And, perhaps the value of gifting the highest quality was summarized best by an anonymous show attendee who received the socks as a giveaway. “Oh, wait, these are compression socks? I will definitely keep these & give all the other socks that I have collected today to my kids!”
If you have a creative challenge, please give Onyx a call. And then, it’s up, up, and away!!!

We are proud to have Rick Brenner as Onyx’s Product Safety Consultant. Rick is a driving force behind our industry’s efforts to produce and distribute products that are safe for recipients. He recently published an article on the emergence of Internet-connected tech products (IoT) and the implications for both innovations, as well as safety.
We are excited to announce that Scott Stewart has joined Onyx, Inc. as Director of Business Development and will work from its Charlotte, North Carolina location. Scott has over 30 years of industry experience, partnering with the nation’s largest promotional products distributors and consistently winning enterprise program business by matching his client’s needs to his company’s strengths. He is charged with the same goal at Onyx, plus he has new capabilities to share.
“Being able to offer incentive programs and Purchasing Power employee programs is a big deal for me” explains Stewart. “I have many clients that run these types of programs, but I could not help them in the past. Now, I can provide a more complete portfolio of services, and I can’t wait to make these introductions.”
Scott is also enthusiastic about Onyx’s east-west coast presence, its global reach, and the quality of its team. “With the Charlotte office in close proximity, I can be hand’s on and fully engaged from start to finish.” Scott is focused on growing Onyx’s sales presence in the southeast. He is also making introductions to specific companies that can benefit from Onyx’s high-touch service, creativity, promotional product and brand expertise, as well as its technology and fulfillment services.
“Scott is one of the most knowledgeable enterprise program pros in the industry, and we are thrilled to welcome him!” says Matt David, Onyx President. “He has been in our industry for many years and has a fantastic network of suppliers, co-workers, and customers that are joining us, too. Everyone at Onyx benefits from this addition, and we are ready to over-deliver on all of Scott’s promises!”
It’s been 1 year since Onyx acquired 4U Inc. so it’s a great opportunity to celebrate Onyx’s Director of Incentives, Hank Ryan. Hank’s tenure with 4U began in 2001 in Omaha, Nebraska, where he learned the business and grew the business by making one client happy at a time. His $5M incentive client base was earned through patience, good relationships, and delivering on promises.
Until last year, there was a 10,000 ft warehouse with premium products 30 feet from Hank’s desk, but Onyx’s on demand delivery system & its powerful and flexible incentive platform have streamlined operations. As Hank explains, “Now, I can focus even more on the clients and driving measurable results. With Onyx’s on-line platform, I can be more proactive. I can spend more time to tweak program offers and strategies, knowing that I have the best global reward delivery system in the business behind me.”
Hank is fiercely dedicated to his customers, and he is passionate about creating loyalty, reward, and incentive programs that help them to reach their goals. Happy Anniversary, Hank!
