The Marek Group Acquires Brandspring
Brandspring Solutions, a Minneapolis-based integrated marketing communications firm is pleased to announce they've been acquired by The Marek Group, one of the nation's leading commercial printing firms recognized for its advanced offset and digital print applications.
"Successful acquisitions are built upon cultural fit, the integrity of the leaders and the energy behind their combined vision: this acquisition clearly has all three," said Dave Maiser, President and founder, Brandspring Solutions.
Brandspring Solutions provides integrated marketing services to primarily the b2b market as well as the b2c and non-profit markets. As a privately-owned agency for over 35 years, Brandspring has offered traditional sales and marketing consulting while pioneering its own web to print platform for client-unique applications. Serving one of the nation's leading health care organizations, direct mail companies, retail chains and more with this customized platform, Brandspring's leadership and expertise in this area was key to Marek's strategic business expansion and growing web to print business.
"We're taking our successful solution development strategy to a whole new level," said Tami Marek, President of The Marek Group. "We found an exceptional partner who brings substantial digital marketing resources to our company, intellectual property and a history of superior performance that is entirely consistent with our culture of excellence."
The Marek Group, headquartered in Wisconsin, has taken a conventional print business and progressively outpaced others by innovating print with technology solutions- staying on the forefront and transforming not only the way they do business, but the quality of services they provide for Fortune 500 companies, direct marketing agencies and businesses with fulfillment and specialty packaging needs.
"Brandspring will enable us to take solutions upstream more, helping to bridge a gap and offer our clients a whole new set of tools for success," said CEO Fuzzy Marek of The Marek Group. "Together we can expand our market presence and provide a wide range of integrated services to our clients nationwide, as well as in the Twin Cities and Milwaukee markets."
Maiser will continue to lead Brandspring Solutions as he prepares for retirement after 35 years in the business while Brandspring's Jay Thomas will assume operational responsibilities. The company will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Marek Group.
