CLEVELAND, OH – Proforma Infinite Marketing Solutions is excited to announce the acquisition of Image Builders Unlimited, an East Lansing, MI promotional products company. David Szidik, Owner of Proforma Infinite Marketing Solutions was assisted by the Proforma Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) Team to secure the deal. Terms of the deal were not announced.
“This acquisition will more than double my sales,” said Szidik. “We are providing Image Builders Unlimited’s customers with the same great customer service they’ve come to expect, with added products and services such as print, video, web services and much more.”
The Proforma M&A Team supports all Proforma Owners in the development and implementation of an acquisition growth strategy. “The Proforma M&A Team guided me every step of the way. Acquisitions are easy with their help,” said Szidik. In 2013 the Proforma Acquisitions Team helped its members acquire more than 25 businesses.
“Mergers and acquisitions are a key pillar to achieving wealth in this industry,” said Greg Muzzillo, Founder of Proforma. “When I built my own $25 million distributorship, acquisitions were a successful strategy in growing my business. It’s exciting to be able to assist our Owners achieving this level of success. No other distributor network in the industry provides this level of service to its members.”
Szidik began working with Proforma’s M&A Team this year to identify opportunities to significantly grow his business. Using Proforma’s M&A prospecting tools, Szidik was able to establish relationships with promotional products distributors and print brokers that may be interested in selling, which led to the successful buy-out of Image Builders Unlimited.
Szidik has been in the print and promotional products industry for more than 10 years and has been a part of Proforma since 2008. As a member of Proforma, Proforma Infinite Marketing Solutions has access to a full suite of support, including access to award winning marketing campaigns, a newly enhanced technology platform, financial backing, free credit insurance, the buying clout that lowers costs 5% - 15% with a proven vendor network and more.
