On The Beat Industry News In Brief

Officials for Young & Laramore on Feb. 19 announced they signed a deal to create various forms of advertising for Columbus, Ohio-based Stanley Steemer, the nation’s largest flooring and upholstery cleaning companies based on sales.

The deal is no small coup. According to industry insiders, Stanley Steemer spends $50 million to $60 million in advertising annually.

The deal comes at a good time for Y&L, which, like most ad agencies, has been hit by the slowing economy in the last two years, a period that saw the firm lose one of its biggest clients, Steak n Shake restaurants.

Financial terms of the deal between Stanley Steemer and Y&L were not disclosed, but advertising experts said it could add a hefty six-figure amount to Y&L’s ledger. Y&L officials said they expect Stanley Steemer to be their largest client.

Y&L had the Stanley Steemer account from 2003 to 2005, when Stanley shifted its business to Dallas-based The Loomis Agency without a review. During its three-year run with Stanley Steemer, Y&L put together an award-winning campaign, including nabbing an Effie, one of the industry’s highest honors.

Y&L President Tom Denari, who will be in charge of the account, said the Indianapolis ad shop already is preparing for a Stanley Steemer television campaign, which is set to start airing in April. Stanley Steemer is known for its heavy reliance on cable TV ads, and ad experts expect the campaign to air heavily in Indianapolis and other markets this spring and summer.

While Y&L will handle all creative and production duties, Chicago-based Publicis Groupe’s Starcom will manage media buying.

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
