About Us

Carl Hamburg Associates, Inc. (CHA) was founded in 1990 by Carl Hamburg. Carl, a longtime fixture in Pittsburgh business circles, recognized the opportunities in the rapidly growing promotional products industry and decided his lifetime background in sales was a perfect fit. He was right.

In 1991 he hired his first full time employee, Kitty Wilt Councilor. Kitty's job description changed many times over the ensuing years. She organized the office and learned everything she could about the business. She went from Office Manger to Sales Manager to General Manager and, for all practical purposes, over the last several years she has been running the business. As of January 1, 2003 it became official. Carl retired and she bought CHA. Kitty has evolved into a major player in the promotional products industry.

CHA takes justifiable pride in the service it provides its clients. Every inquiry, whether large or small, is important as evidenced by the attention they receive. Every order, whether large or small, is equally important. With access to the best suppliers and the best prices, CHA has hundreds of satisfied clients. Personal service is our byword.

We maintain memberships in the Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI). Promotional Products Association International (PPAI) and Three Rivers Advertising Specialty Association (TRASA). Through these memberships and attendance at trade shows, workshops, educational classes and conventions we are continually up-to-date on the newest ideas and technology in the industry.
