OSG, the global customer communications provider, has acquired the VOX Group, a UK-based point of purchase marketing specialist.
Following the acquisition, the VOX Group will be merged with the Procurement Services division of OSG’s Europe-based Communisis business. This creates an integrated marketing support business for world-leading brands across a range of disciplines, from print to permanent point of purchase, and accelerates the growth plans of both businesses across Europe and North America.
Phil Hoggarth, CEO of Communisis and President of OSG Europe comments: “VOX and our Procurement Services division complement each other perfectly and by bringing our mutual strengths together, we are creating a very compelling proposition for current and future clients.
The global supply chain and in-house engineering skills that VOX brings means we can manage more of the supply chain needs of existing and new clients across Europe and North America in an increasingly sustainable way.
This is a fast growing, but still fragmented part of the market and this merger will help rationalise some of the fragmentation and allow us to capitalise on the expected growth in the sector. It’s an exciting move.”
Brian Leech, founder of VOX added: “This partnership combines complementary talent, expertise and culture from two unique, competent and ambitious businesses that further strengthens the service that we deliver to our great customers worldwide.”
The combined business will be headquartered in the UK, incorporating more than twenty operational subsidiaries across Europe, North America, and Asia.
Communisis Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of OSG Group operating across the UK and EMEA, powering brand engagement to provide our clients with critical communications and marketing collateral. Our 1400 colleagues work with some of the biggest financial and FMCG organisations in the world to Power their Brand Engagement.
VOX Group is a highly experienced global point of purchase specialist, partnering with leading brands to deliver value, resilience and sustainability from display and merchandising supply chains.
