Edison Litho & Printing Corp. (North Bergen, NJ) has announced its acquisition of Compass Display Group (Kennesaw, GA), an award-winning company that delivers both temporary and permanent point-of-sale materials and displays. A leader in the point-of-sale display industry, Compass will become a new business unit of Edison Litho and will operate under the name Edison Compass Display Group. The Edison Compass transition will be led by Edison COO Joseph Ostreicher along with the existing Compass management team.
“The move to acquire Compass allows Edison Litho to offer our clients permanent displays and environmental graphics in addition to the vast printing options previously offered,” said Edison CEO George Gross. Ostreicher noted, “We are committed to embracing the new age and to servicing all of our clients’ needs and do whatever it takes to keep our customers happy.”
Edison Compass’s Georgia location provides a strategic complement to Edison’s existing location in North Bergen. With the Jersey plant working at near capacity, the acquisition of the Georgia plant will enable Edison to service its Southwestern client base in a more cost-effective way. With this increased capacity, Edison Compass will offer their services and seek new opportunities in the Southern markets.
A provider of large-format and high volume printing for many of the world’s biggest brands and retailers for over 55 years, Edison Litho has served North America’s largest companies in a wide range of industries including retail, product manufacturing, entertainment, and packaging.
Launched in 1998, Compass Display Group has been a source of temporary and permanent point-of-sale programs for the past 15 years. Among its honors are awards from the Path to Purchase Institute and Global Shop (POPAI). Compass also has been named by Creative magazine as one of the top 50 POP companies in the U.S.
