Brands In Motion, Inc. is looking for investment and strategic partners to Grow this venture in the United States. At this time in the market we are 2 to 3 years ahead of any possible competition. Now is the time for growth, integration, product-extension and category domination.


Golf Ads USA, now owns a large inventory of special Australian hardwood and has a special relationship with a sign production facility. Due to this inventory and investment the company is able to deliver signs, packed, twenty to a pallet, to golf courses within days instead of months.

Typically a palette of 20 signs is delivered to the participating golf course. Independent contractors are hired to install signs, in sets of five. The cost of installation is minimal and under our new contractual agreements with our course partners the installation will be supervised and managed by the course maintenance staff at no cost.
