Vision Integrated Graphics, the full-service marketing solutions provider with locations in the Chicago area, has announced it has acquired Point Imaging, the large-format sign and display imaging and installation service provider.

Point Imaging president Kevin Huseman will assume the role of chief strategy officer for the combined companies, initially focusing on driving increased business volume in the grand-format area.  The 60,000-square-foot Point Imaging facility and all of its employees will be retained; following the acquisition, Vision Integrated Graphics will have three locations in the Chicago area and about 235 employees.

“We have been partnering with Point Imaging for about a decade,” says Doug Powell, CEO of Vision Integrated Graphics. “By acquiring them at this time, we have taken a quantum leap in our production mix, adding Point Imaging’s high volume point-of-purchase/point-of-sale/out-of-home capabilities to our streamlined workflow, digital, and conventional printing services, Web-to-print, and cross-media expertise."

"The acquisition expands our wide-format presence beyond our current roll-to-roll capabilities including the ability to print direct to rigid substrates and a more robust array of grand-format print options.”

Vision Integrated Graphics merged its original company, Award/Vision, with Steve Smits’ Alpha Beta Press in 2005. The combined companies now generate about $40 million in annual revenues.
