Company History

Castle Merchandising was founded by Bernie Costelli in 1996 when he left a sales job with a leading watch brand and used the factory contacts he had developed over the years to create a specialty of line of watches for a major recognition company, a brand inspired by retail known as Time America watches. We still offers Time America watches in our portfolio to this day, and frequently help other companies create their own watch brands and lines. We can create time pieces of almost any type and cost, including those with Quartz movements, Swiss movements, digital, or smart watches that include heart-rate monitors and step counters.

Over the years, Castle Merchandising has expanded into helping other watch brands enter the market, and added designer fragrances, handbags, sunglasses and other fashion brands, even extending into housewares. We now our own warehouse providing in-house fulfillment along with the ability to support EDI and other automated data connections to facilitate catalog fulfillment.

 

Our Mission

Our mission is helping organizations enhance their own brands through the selective use of leading brands and providing fast-response, adaptability, competitive pricing. John Costelli, the founder’s son and current President of Castle Merchandising, brings the same passion and family feel to the company that his father had fostered.
