ABOUT General Advertising Products


General Advertising Products was founded in 1962 by Walter Howland. The original offices were located in Bond Hill, Ohio at 4924 Paddock Road. Walter Howland’s son, Bruce, joined the company in 1982 and became the President in 1990.

The business outgrew their Bond Hill location and moved to Springdale in 1993. The move allowed GAP to increase their sales staff. In addition, the building offered warehouse space which opened new doors of opportunity for fulfillment and warehousing capabilities. GAP outgrew their Springdale location and relocated to their brand new facility in Woodlawn, located at 95 Glendale-Milford Road. General Advertising Products provides corporate apparel such as hats, shirts and jackets to companies, schools and organizations throughout the Greater Cincinnati area.
