Showdown Displays Acquires Signage Manufacturer Xarisma
Brooklyn Center, Minnesota-based Showdown Displays (PPAI 254687) has acquired Xarisma, a custom soft signage supplier in Huntsville, Alabama.
“Xarisma’s creative branding solutions and innovative display development is an ideal complement to the current offerings of Showdown Displays,” says Kevin Walsh, president of Showdown Displays. “We’re equally excited to bring the added production capacity, expanded facility space and Xarisma’s expertise and talent in custom fabrications to the Showdown family.”
In a news release, Showdown Displays describes the two companies as like-minded and culturally compatible, and once integrated under the Showdown Displays brand, will offer a more comprehensive suite of both stock and custom portable lightweight display solutions.
“Showdown Displays is the undisputed industry leader in portable, lightweight displays,” says Jon Houser, a Xarisma owner and vice president of sales and marketing. “The entire Xarisma team is excited about the synergies this acquisition represents as well as the opportunity to leverage each company’s strengths to accelerate our overall growth.”
The corporate headquarters for Showdown Displays will remain in Brooklyn Center. The current Xarisma offices and 85,000 square foot production facility in Huntsville and its 90 team members, will complement the Showdown Displays facilities and talent force.
