Qualfon Acquires MAR Graphics
Qualfon, a full-service marketing solutions and contact center service provider, announced that it has acquired MAR Graphics, a print, mail and digital solutions provider. Located within the greater St. Louis metropolitan area in Valmeyer, Illinois, MAR offers a wide variety of products and solutions to print distributors, mailers, agencies and clients nationwide. Their extensive digital imaging and bindery departments offer a multitude of value-added features.
Together, Qualfon and MAR will expand their offerings and capabilities in print production, complementing the current marketing service offerings under the Dialog Direct brand. The combination of the two companies provides clients with continued stability in operations, while offering growth opportunities and expanded production capacity. This will also allow Qualfon to produce higher volume jobs, take on more projects and increase its in-house print solutions.
Qualfon CEO Mike Marrow said, “Most exciting of all, this acquisition positions Qualfon for continued growth and a bigger opportunity to make a positive impact on more clients and more Qualfon family members as we strive to be the best and make each person’s life better. Part of our mission stands in making opportunities available to as many people as possible, offering sustainable employment for the long term. An acquisition of this nature brings new clients and revenue to the organization while creating and maintaining jobs in yet another new market.”
“Becoming part of the Qualfon family is an immense step forward for our clients and employees,” said Dialog Direct President and CEO Doug Kearney. “Our combined mission, footprint and solutions will ensure we continue to deliver innovative solutions that deliver bottom line results for our clients.”
“You will see very little change in the day-to-day running of the business. MAR will continue to provide the same level of great service,” said Rick Roever, president of MAR. “Our existing sales team will have the ability to bring more product offerings to you such as kitting and fulfillment, data services, call center and other outsourced business services. We are excited to be a major part of the Qualfon family.”
