CBC Cosmetology Program Partners with Burmax

Coastal Bend College’s Cosmetology program announced a sponsorship with Burmax and Product Club Color Accessories. A virtual signing was held on Thursday June 4, 2020 in the Sandy Dirks Boardroom located on the CBC Campus in Beeville.

“CBC is absolutely ecstatic about our partnership with Burmax. In only one year, our students will be able to gain their operator licensed, barber license and a certification in aesthetics and nails, but they’re also going to be backed by the best company in the field,” said Dean Jarod A. Bleibdrey, Dean of Career and Technology Education.

Product Club Color Accessories will sponsor Coastal Bend College for one full year. As part of the sponsorship, Product Club will supply CBC with Posters, Black Nylon Capes with the Product Club logo/emblem imprinted in white, Instagram stories (one per month) on the Product Club account featuring CBC and students.

“I believe this is a great start to a productive relationship. I look forward to a long and prosperous partnerhip with such a global dynamic in the beauty industry,” said Tomora Gambrell, CBC Cosmetology instructor and Public Services Coordinator. “I look forward to the opportunity to enhance the number of educational classes that Burmax has to offer. I believe our partnership with Burmax will benefit our students to become better prepared for the world of cosmetology,” added Gambrell.

“We are honored and excited to have this partnership with CBC,” said Deborah Goldschmid, Owner and Vice President. “This is a new venture with us, and we see plenty of opportunities to really collaborate with schools, not only to provide them with supplies but be a true partner,” added Goldschmid.

The Burmax Company has been serving the Professional Beauty Industry since 1948, catering to wholesale beauty supply distributors and beauty schools. This family-owned and operated company has grown from a small office in New York City to our current 115,000 square foot State-of-the-Art facility in Holtsville, New York
