Enhances presence in fast-turn, digital-print production market.
IntegraColor Ltd, based in Mesquite, Texas, has acquired Dallas-based digital print firm The Color Place. The acquisition will extend IntegraColor’s assets for digital printing into small and grand formats, permanent and promotional signage, and will also facilitate expansion into the quick-turn, short-run projects that The Color Place has been known for. IntegraColor intends to retain The Color Place team, consolidating equipment and personnel into its headquarters in Mesquite. Rex Jobe, founder and CEO of The Color Place, will stay on with IntegraColor through the transition.
“We are very excited to announce the acquisition of The Color Place, a company known for its agility and quality in producing a full range of small to grand format digital print, Internet-based solutions, permanent and promotional signage,” says Larry C. King, IntegraColor president and CEO. “This acquisition is another key milestone in our visual communications strategy and is complimentary to all our other offerings. By combining our capabilities and knowledgeable sales teams, we are able to broaden the product offerings to both existing and new customers of The Color Place and IntegraColor.”
According to King, this is just one piece of a multi-phase strategy that IntegraColor is executing this year in the down economic climate. The acquisition is expected to add an additional $15 to $20 million to IntegraColor’s 2010 - 2011 revenues, he says.
