MÉR Companies

dbs-header-demo

More than direction. More than ideas.

A more complete business partner. MÉR is a full-service, full-spectrum business and marketing resource that helps its clients identify, plan, and execute success opportunities. To do so, we focus on several key areas that well exceed the scope of a typical marketing or branding ‘agency'. The result is better ideas that smooth out the rough seas for your brand in the marketplace. While product innovation can be a game changer for our clients, ingenuity in how that product or service is marketed—and how its unique business and marketing challenges are solved—can translate to even greater game changing results in the marketplace. The MÉR Companies team is committed to finding solutions to your brand's unique challenges that, frankly, others might not even consider. It is in these leaps to more creative solutions where competitive advantages are born, and opportunities are seized. Our three divisions can be engaged either separately or together, allowing us to tailor solutions to suit need and budget levels in ways clients can truly appreciate. Because we know that sometimes less is more, and other times, more is more.

We're not like most companies. We have greater depth...which is a function of our team's multi-dimensional experience. We're a consultancy...but much broader than that. We're a branding agency...but far deeper than that. We're a material solutions provider...but more diverse than that. We are a multi-faceted group of companies which can be engaged separately–or in combination–to precisely match your needs. We tailor ourselves to fit you because, in the world of bringing products to market, one size does not fit all, and being a one trick pony simply won't cut it.

"I’ve heard plenty of people talk about ‘going the extra mile’…the team at MÉR actually DOES. I’ve worked with as many companies that create and manage show exhibits as anyone, and these guys, quite simply, get it done–with a rare combination of professionalism and tenacity. - Larry Berryman, National Marine Manufacturers Association, Miami, FL

During the pandemic, I was stuck aboard Guiding Light, a Lagoon 410, in St. Lucia for over a month. During that time, as I worked on the boat, I started by doing a spring cleaning in my spares locker and finding some parts and material that I forgot I had. As soon as I saw them, ...read more
