Circle Graphics Purchases Boston-Based Grand-Format Printing Company Mammoth Media
LONGMONT, CO—October 10, 2014—Circle Graphics, the world’s largest producer of grand-format digital graphics, has acquired Mammoth Media, a grand-format printing company with a focus on the transit market. The Massachusetts-based acquisition adds an East Coast manufacturing presence to Colorado-headquartered Circle Graphics, as well as added transit expertise to over 12,000 customers nationwide.
Founded in 2000, Circle Graphics employs more than 450 people nationwide with manufacturing facilities in Longmont, CO, and Baton Rouge, LA, and offices in Austin, TX, Los Angeles, Detroit and New York City. All Mammoth Media employees will be joining the Circle Graphics team.
“This purchase is a strategic move to continue the significant growth that Circle Graphics has experienced in the out-of-home advertising industry,” said Andrew Cousin, Circle Graphics CEO. “As a company with a great reputation, high standards and a customer focus, Mammoth Media is a perfect complement to the Circle Graphics portfolio.”
Mark Rowell, CEO of Mammoth Media, added: “Mammoth Media’s desire to access more national clients was a huge driver in this decision. The strength of Circle Graphics experience in outdoor billboards mixed with our experience in transit creates an ideal combination. We are not only excited about the opportunity to grow together, but also the opportunity this provides for our clients to grow in new marketplaces as well.”
With tremendous growth opportunities in the industry, the purchase allows the integration of services and talented teams to offer a broader range of products.
