San Francisco Flyer Distribution Service Celebrates 16 Years In The Bay Area


In a time when companies are struggling to stay in business, it is wonderful to see a company that has flourished in business for 16 years. SIMAA INC, a flyer and poster distribution service based in the San Francisco Bay Area, is celebrating 16 years in business this month, a huge milestone by anyone’s standards.

“We are thrilled to be celebrating this 16th anniversary milestone with many customers that have been with us through the past 16 years,” said Orrin Porter, President. “Our continued growth and prosperity is much attributed to our loyal customers who have made SIMAA INC their choice for flyer and poster distribution. We wish to acknowledge and thank all of our customers as we look to foster those relationships for many years to come.”

SIMAA INC opened for business in 1998 and never looked back. The company has become one of the premiere flyer and poster distribution companies in California. When asked how he has established such a successful run in what is considered a volatile business, Porter responded, “Customer service and attention to detail is the key.”

It certainly must be working if their impressive list of testimonials is any indication. “We look forward to the next 16 years!,” Porter said. For more information about the SIMAA INC distribution service, please visit their website at:
