Create your own, personally designed luggage with ROAM.

AMA SystemsAMA Systems brings what may be the first fully customizable luggage brand to the Incentive, Reward, and Recognition (IRR) market.

According to Larry Lein, Co-Founder and CEO, ROAM Luggage, “We set out to create a premium luggage brand that would break the cycle of nondescript luggage and offer travelers a way to reflect their personal style and stand out while traveling the world. As the world’s first fully customizable premium luggage brand, we’re filling a void within the travel industry by offering suitcases that our customers design themselves. Harnessing the decades of experience we’ve had working in the luggage industry, we have selected only the world’s finest materials, and we proudly build our luggage by hand in our workshop in Vidalia, GA. We think the days of mono-color black suitcases are over and are excited to see travelers ROAM in color.”

“We are very excited to partner with ROAM not only because their products are assembled by hand in the USA, but they perfectly match the quality of brands we offer to the incentive and premium markets,” says Ted Argeroplos, President and Founder of AMA Systems. “Customers of AMA Systems will now be able to offer a truly unique and personal gift to their recipients.”

ROAM Luggage was launched in 2018 by a team that includes the founder and a former executive vice president at Tumi. According to AMA, it is the only luggage brand in the world that builds custom-designed luggage in the USA from US-made polycarbonate. In addition to its signature hard-side luggage, ROAM also offers a collection of color customizable backpacks, totes, soft luggage, and accessories, all of which are made entirely from recycled and eco-friendly materials.

AMA Systems says it has been providing top brand-name products to the incentive industry since 1994, fulfilling both single drop-ship orders and large bulk opportunities with what it says is a special attention to detail.
