PIP Printing Triad Cuts Ties with Franchisor and Rebrands as Brand Connect
Incorporates Multiple Business Service and Product Verticals


Burlington, NC, November 4, 2022— After 40 years of doing business as PIP Triad, the company has decided to found a new entity, Brand Connect, with a focus on communications through products that share a message, expand brands and create an experience all under one roof. Their services include commercial signage, marketing services, print solutions, fulfillment, architectural finishes, window films, branded apparel and promotional products.


“In talking to numerous clients over the years, we’ve heard their frustrations with suppliers not understanding their businesses or juggling too many vendors, timelines and billing,” said Brand Connect partner Jimmy Brumley. “That’s why we are excited to offer complete solutions and installations through Brand Connect. We’ve taken what we’ve been doing for years and given our clients nearly everything they need under one company umbrella.”


Brand Connect is the parent company for several divisions, including Triad Signs, Print Triad, Carolina Performance Window Films and the Property Marketing Group. Through Triad Signs, Brand Connect is a certified 3M installer for windows films and interior architectural refinishing, one of only a few statewide in North Carolina. They will continue to operate out of their Burlington, NC, facility.
