Blue 2 and Grapevine Designs to Merge
The two WBE-certified entities will now operate together under Grapevine Designs, which affords both companies additional service sets and bandwidth. Blue 2, a member of the A Brand Company family, brings with it enterprise-level fulfillment program expertise, as well as a strong service background in the financial industry. Grapevine Designs touts a prestigious WBENC certification, a sophisticated creative agency approach, and a 40-person Kansas City-based workforce.
"We are very excited to bring a new service offering to our clients," said Janie Gaunce, CEO of Grapevine Designs. "Blue 2 demonstrates big success in the financial and education arenas, and we look forward to leveraging those strengths."
"Although it's sad to retire the Blue 2 name, our team is thrilled to join forces with Grapevine Designs," said Jane Beth McCarty, president of Blue 2. "We know that, with their unique design and marketing acumen, Grapevine will have an immediate impact on our customer base."
The terms of the deal allow both groups to continue to operate from their respective locations and to utilize their existing personnel. The merger is expected to be completed by June 30, 2013.
Grapevine Design's headquarters will remain in Kansas City and the company will have market coverage in Red Banks, New Jersey; Wichita, Kansas; St. Louis, Missouri; Louisville, Kentucky; and Seattle, Washington.
