The Vomela Group has completed the acquisition of the business and assets of Indianapolis-based Pratt Corporation, the provider of store décor and P-O-P programs for national retailers.

"Bringing the Pratt business into the Vomela family of companies, will allow us to serve our growing retail customer base with added capability, capacity and insight into retail markets", says Mark Auth, president of Vomela.
