Malcolm Roebuck emigrated from the UK to Mexico in 1963 and then to the United States in 1966. A Mechanical and Production Engineer by trade, he had a passion for functional analysis. One day, he overheard an insurance salesman talking about a photo pin-back button who said, “If someone could make a machine to do this, they’d make a million bucks!” Fast forward 3 years and Malcolm invented a revolutionary badge-making machine. With the birth of Badge-A-Minit, which is also 100% made in America, he took the world by storm with millions of worldwide sales, developing a range of machines to suit every skill level and business scale, while staying true to his core values of practicality and affordability.
And that was just the beginning.
Today, Badge-a-Minit is alive and well, but Malcolm Group Inc. is synonymous with more than just buttons. Our Best Impressions Catalog has provided tens of thousands of promotional products for fundraising, brand awareness, and everything in between, while our innovative pad-printing system, Imprintor, has been featured in tradeshows across the country. The creation of our Ariva Skin Care Company allows us to bring over 175 makeup and skincare brands to the public, making us a favorite in the online shopping community.
And we aren’t finished yet! Past projects include early horizontal drilling of oil wells in Texas, real estate projects, Black Angus cattle, waterslides, flying and aircraft leasing, marinas, ski resorts, RV campsites and a card counting hobby in Las Vegas. Future and current projects include volatility investment algorithms through Roebuck Systems.
No matter the business, we here at Malcolm Group Inc. strive for excellence in product quality and customer satisfaction. We have decades of experience, a devoted following, and a desire to give our best in all we do, and it all started with one man who dared to dream.
