Our History

Stamats was founded in 1923 as a marketing services firm by two young creative entrepreneurs, Frank French and Herbert Stamats. Just as the Stamats of today, they focused on a few markets and utilized the most effective methods available for realizing success for their clients.

The first half-century of Stamats’ business utilized print media, including custom publications and business-to-business magazines. It was during this period that Stamats became known for creativity, quality and market specialization.

In the 1980’s Stamats was the first company to offer market research services to education institutions. It was during this decade that Stamats began expanding its business media offerings by adding events such as The Buildings Show, a trade show for the commercial buildings industry.

Today, Stamats provides a wide range of solutions for its clients and customers and continues to be owned and managed by descendants of Herbert Stamats and their families. We choose not to be “married” to any particular medium, but instead push ourselves to stay ahead of the curve and become familiar with new and changing media. As a result, we offer a full range of marketing, consulting, research and business media services and limit ourselves only to products and services which are effective for those we serve.

A key attribute of Stamats’ longevity is staying young with the solutions we provide, but holding fast to the values that have been with us since our founding.

  • Stamats has been an excellent partner in both creating a brand that truly captures the essence of our district and communicating it in a manner that captivates and makes our stakeholders proud. “They nailed it” is the phrase we heard over and over again as we shared the work of Stamats with our constituents.

  • If you are looking for a company to be strictly a vendor and to provide you data and reports, Stamats is not your firm. However, if you are looking for a company that is a true partner in your success – you need not look further. In more than a decade of working with Stamats, it has been my experience that they approach the relationship with institutions as a true partnership.

  • We needed very specifically to figure out what more we could do to increase our reputation in the state and the region. They understood our unique needs, were incredibly responsive, pushed us when we needed to be pushed, helped us avoid some political minefields, and really gave us what we needed. We were so impressed.

  • I have concluded that the most valuable partnerships are ones in which the firm insists on a clear definition of the problem the institution is trying to solve, a thoughtful (not off-the shelf) approach to solutions that are unique for the circumstances and institutional market position, the will to listen to input from the institution, the courage to make recommendations or challenge conventions from a well-grounded empirical base and in a timely manner.

  • It’s really been a miracle given our resources, our timing, and the level of awareness about Cornell Tech. Working with the Stamats team, we were able to deliver an exceptional class at a very reasonable cost per student.

  • Where other agencies saw roadblocks and said ‘no,’ Stamats said ‘yes!’ They worked hard to win our business and worked just as hard throughout the process. Stamats wowed our entire team with their efforts and energy.
