Euless, Texas-based full-service sign and graphics company Federal Heath announces the acquisiyion of certain assets of Rochester Hills, Michigan-based Advance Graphic Systems. Federal Heath says AGS has provided innovative, high-quality solutions for turnkey signage, graphics, custom building elements, retail fixtures, and displays for nearly 40 years.
The new parent company says that besides providing additional processes for printed graphics production, AGS brings an established customer base of large retailers, design firms, architects, turnkey solutions companies, construction businesses, and exhibit houses. AGS also supplements Federal Heath’s capabilities in the areas of design, prototyping, digital printing, fabrication, installation, inventory, and fulfillment services from warehousing to distribution.
The move positions Federal Heath to effectively respond to dramatic changes that have reshaped the retailing industry over the last decade, the company says.
“AGS has kept pace by developing new product lines and expanding their services,” says Federal Heath’s president and chief operating officer, Sid Rasnick. “The addition of AGS will enable us to provide even more ‘value added’ presence to our clients.”
Rasnick was promoted to the presidency earlier this year when CEO Kevin Stotmeister announced he would retire at the end of 2019. After that Rasnick will take over the CEO title.
“The acquisition supports our strategic progression, fosters an innovative learning experience between AGS and our existing Racine (Wisconsin) printed graphics plant and, most importantly, continues to support our customer base while providing them with solid offerings and business solutions that support their own expansion opportunities,” Rasnick says.
Adds to AGS sales manager, Jeff Hall, “We are very excited about this opportunity to become part of Federal Heath, where a company of our size can make a big impact because of our unique capabilities. By combining the talented and dedicated staff of both companies, we can continue to expand and diversify our product lines and service offerings to existing and new clients.”
