The Faber Group of Amsterdam, better known as Faber Vlaggen, has acquired visual communication specialist Imaba in Zoetermeer. As a result of this acquisition, the largest producer of flags will gain access to the market of printing on hard materials and store decor.
This acquisition enables the Faber Group to offer their customers a product range for indoor and outdoor advertising that is unique in the field. An extensive investment program accompanies the acquisition. For example, a state-of-the-art printer from manufacturer Durst will be installed at the Zoetermeer print shop shortly. Top quality and fast delivery will therefore continue to be guaranteed. In addition to its own production, Imaba has a professional logistics service with unique knowledge of store decor. Its own placement service provides many opportunities for synergy with the placement service of Faber Vlaggen. In order to reflect this expanded product range in its name, Imaba Grafische Bedrijven was changed to Imaba Visual Experience.
Martin Koppelaar, CEO Faber Group: Imaba is known in the field as a company with an upscale clientele in the retail sector, and has many similarities with Faber Vlaggen. By merging the product ranges of Faber and Imaba, a complete package for indoor and outdoor advertising has resulted, and we can offer our clients a one-stop-shopping experience. This is unique. Imaba fits in with the growth strategy of Faber perfectly.”
Through the acquisition of Imaba, the Faber Group will grow to € 40 million revenue and 400 employees in 2015.
