Thursday, February 18, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Herndon, VA - Bigeye Direct, Inc. today announced that it will merge with Advanced Mailing Services to provide first-class data processing, printing, and mailing services to companies across the area. The joint venture will retain the Bigeye Direct, Inc. name and relocate to 32,000 square feet of newly-renovated office and production space in Herndon, Virginia. Mark Karl will serve as CEO, Damon Smith as President, and Mike Calder as COO.

"This merger was really about providing superior service to our customers," said Mark Karl, CEO of Bigeye Direct. "The new Bigeye Direct will provide the most advanced and responsive direct mail production services in the region." The new company offers over 50 years of combined experience in data processing, personalization, and letter shop operations. Nearly all employees from the two companies have been transitioned to the new venture, resulting in little to no disruption in operations.

"Time and money are both at a premium for our customers," said Damon Smith, President of Bigeye Direct. "The merger will enable greater capacity and quicker turnaround times, as well as expanded drop shipments and deeper postal discounts for our customers. We are extremely proud of the secure, state-of-the-art facility we have constructed and with an average capacity of 400,000 inserted packages per day, we will be able to accommodate the growing demands of our customers."

"It's not just about providing every service, it's about meeting every deadline," said Mike Calder, COO of Bigeye Direct. "With a dedicated staff of 70 employees working two shifts and on weekends, the new Bigeye Direct promises production services that are not just best in the area, but best in class."
