Chameleon like Acquires The Platform Group Gallery
Supplier Chameleon like, Inc. (PPAI 209189), in Gilroy, California, has acquired Houston, Texas-based The Platform Group Gallery (PPAI 216134), a supplier specializing in gift boxes, portfolios and binders. As part of the transaction, The Platform Group Gallery is relocating into larger manufacturing space in Houston with the Chameleon like team taking over customer service and production in the near future. The transaction closed on July 18 and is part of Chameleon like, Inc.’s plan to expand into the custom packaging space and establish a manufacturing facility in Houston.
“For years, customers have asked us for packaging solutions, but our first goal has always been to create a strong process around our existing custom journal business, then scale that into relevant categories—we’re ready now and the need for quick-to-market custom packaging is here,” says Pierre Martichoux, founder and president of Chameleon like, Inc. “When Allison Gower and Jeremy Konko, founders of The Platform Group Gallery contacted us, we thought this would be a great opportunity for our team to develop the know-how as well as equipment to expand into this category.”
Gower, who established The Platform Group Gallery in 1997, adds, “I cannot imagine a better home for the GalleryBoard packaging line than at Chameleon Like. I designed the GalleryBoard line to be high-style, ecologically conscious and made in the USA with highly trained employees. Pierre and his team at Chameleon like share these values and I am confident that the GalleryBoard packaging line will thrive and grow with Chameleon like production, service and sales team members."
