Almar Sales Company was founded in 1965 by Jack Ash. Under his leadership the small family owned company manufactured girls' hair bows under the brand name "Little Linda", named after one of Mr. Ash's granddaughters. A decade later Almar Sales expanded to manufacturing cosmetics and gift sets for girls and women. In the late 90's the entire line was re-branded to "Expressions" including "Expressions Girl" and "Princess Expressions." In the last two decades the company has continued to expand the cosmetics and skin care divisions with the acquisition of Jean Pierre Cosmetics and Dream Cosmetics.
As part of these acquisitions, the company began working with major licensed brands to develop:
- Wonka, Dippin' Dots, Razzles Runts, SweeTarts, Fun Dip, and Double Bubble cosmetics
- Hello Kitty Friends cosmetics
- Spider Man bath toys and chapstick
- French Toast school uniform hair accessories
- Bratz hair accessories and costume jewelry
- ELLE and ELLE Girl high fashion hair accessories
- Suave value hair accessories HBA program
Over the last five years the company has continued to evolve with the addition of a Fashion Jewelry division and a girl's lifestyle brand called My Princess Academy.
Almar is currently under the leadership of its founders' sons and grandsons, as well as industry experts in sales, marketing, merchandising and operations. Today Almar carries over 3000 SKU's of consumer products, and serves customers from specialty boutiques to international mass merchants.
