Federal Heath, a leading national sign company since 1901, has acquired selected assets of Advance Graphic Systems (AGS) of Rochester Hills, Michigan. AGS has provided innovative, high-quality solutions for turnkey signage, graphics, custom building elements, retail fixtures, and displays for nearly 40 years.
This acquisition builds on the existing capabilities of Federal Heath in signage, maintenance, specialty contracting, digital signage, and printed graphics, adding a sixth state-of-the-art production facility to the company’s extensive manufacturing operations.
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 significant 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.
“AGS has kept pace by developing new product lines and expanding their services,” said 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.
“The acquisition supports our strategic progression, fosters an innovative learning experience between AGS and our existing Racine 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 said.
According 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.”
