Media Resources, an integrated sign service business offering digital LED displays (outdoor & indoor), 3D props, sign installation and printing services to the Billboard & Commercial Sign industry is pleased to announce the acquisition of Irvin, Inc., which offers hardware & lighting solutions to those same vertical markets. The combination of the two organizations will create the most comprehensive end-to-end solutions’ provider in the industry. Irvin’s sales footprint is positioned for explosive growth as it will now be offered by every Media Resources’ sales team member in the United States, Canada and overseas. Operations will be combined in the Media Resources US headquarters in Fort Mills, SC with a second operational center near Toronto, Canada.
Denise Irvin, President of Irvin whose family began operating the business in the 1990s, says: “As we looked into our future, we really wanted to expand our reach by partnering with a major industry leader,” said Denise Irvin Cannon, president of Irvin. “But it was also paramount to us that we work with an organization that shares our business values and code of ethics. Media Resources checked all the boxes. We are completely aligned in our commitment to quality and integrity in all that we do. My parents who started the business, my brother Mike, myself and our entire Irvin team could not be happier.”
Jeff Rushton, President & CEO of Media Resources, added that “strategically Media Resources is taking this time to invest heavily in its US market expansion.” The Irvin acquisition comes on the heels of the completion of a major digital LED service and training center at its Fort Mills, SC facility. “Irvin’s products & services are a natural complement to all Media Resources has to offer. And with their incredible focus on customer service in combination with the Irvin family values, we knew it was a perfect fit,” Rushton continues, “With this, we are the only firm in the industry that can truly be a one-stop shop from design, through engineering, to digital or non-digital hardware manufacturing & resell, to installation and ongoing service. Like the Irvins, we could not be happier with the outcome.”
