We welcome the 65 Tri-Five employees to the Artisans ESOP family and look forward to collaboratively growing our business with our new group of fellow employee owners.”

This blending of our businesses provides both entities with a broader stable of exceptional products and artwork. Our sales rep footprint will also grow substantially. We are also excited that all of our employees will have the opportunity to become employee owners of Artisans.”
