ITW Space Bag
ITW Space Bag is a global leader in the development and marketing of innovative, space-saving storage products. The company’s pioneering product, the Space Bag® Vacuum-seal storage bag, created a category upon its debut in 1994: compressed storage in the home. Since then, ITW Space Bag has stayed ahead of the pack with a philosophy of constant product innovation and the highest level of customer service.
ITW Space Bag is located in San Diego, California. The Space Bag® product line is sold through more than 15,000 retailers and in more than 60 countries worldwide. Space Bag® products are sold in virtually every channel of distribution in the U.S.undefinedonline, mass merchant, specialty retail, drug, hardware, supermarket, home shopping television, direct response television, catalog, and military.
New West Products, Inc., the company that pioneered the Space Bag® line of products, was founded in 1993. The company moved to San Diego in 2001, and in November 2002 it was acquired by Illinois Tool Works (NYSE: ITW), a $16 billion diversified manufacturer of highly engineered components and industrial systems and consumables.
Now a wholly-owned subsidiary of ITW, the company's name has changed to ITW Space Bag, and its growth continues. Today the company is recognized as a global leader in the development and marketing of innovative storage products and was recently named to the top ranks of INC Magazine's annual list of Fastest Growing Companies.

Southern States University
Southern States University (SSU) is a private American university founded in 1983.
With four campuses in San Diego and one in Newport Beach, SSU educates business-oriented professionals from around the world. The University offers Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree programs, an Intensive English Program (18+ hours per week) and certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL Professional Certificate).
Under new ownership, the University started these programs at its Newport Beach campus in 2006, and today enrollment has surpassed 650, with additional campus locations added over the past three years in Mission Valley, La Jolla, Pacific Beach and San Marcos.
The University’s affordable tuition and monthly payment plans put higher education within reach of many students who otherwise could not afford it. Tuition at SSU is far lower per unit than at most other institutions offering MBA and BBA programs, and tuition pricing is the same for California residents, non-California residents and international students.
Affordable tuition does not mean inferior education. SSU has been awarded “Institutional Approval” status by the State of California, certifying it meets the state’s stringent statutory requirements for a private postsecondary institution, and has spent the past three years preparing for national accreditation, which the school is working toward through the Accrediting Council of Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).
As SSU continues to grow and work toward accreditation, it remains student focused. SSU’s staff is attentive to students’ needs, and provides individualized academic and career counseling. The university also offers assistance in finding housing for its students. Many students, who come from countries including Brazil, Turkey, India, Japan, Korea and Italy, arrange to stay in apartments, condos or dorm-style accommodations, or to participate in home stays, where they live with local families. SSU also provides career and job placement assistance for its students and graduates. While a number of graduates have gone on to start and run their own businesses, others have found careers as business analysts, marketing managers, sales representatives, Tepper, information technology consultants.
