The Paragon Group, which offers customer communications, identification and graphics services, has acquired Imprimus Limited, which was previously called Stralfors UK and mainly offers transactional communications.
Imprimus, which has offices at both Redruth and Dartford, has an annual turnover of around £14m. It will now become part of Paragon Customer Communications’ business in the UK, which offers transactional, regulatory, and direct marketing communication. The Paragon Group as a whole employs some 5,000 employees in 15 countries and has a global turnover in excess of €700 million. It is split into three divisions: Paragon Customer Communications, Paragon ID and Paragon Graphic Services.
Imprimus has a diverse product portfolio, which will complement solutions already offered by Paragon, particularly around postage optimisation and digital channels. There is very little cross over between client bases of the two companies.
Jeremy Walters, CEO at Paragon Customer Communications UK, said: “The acquisition strengthens Paragon’s position as one of the most trusted and reliable service providers in the UK transactional and regulatory communications market. It underlines our ongoing commitment to be the premier service provider to our customers, offering unrivalled infrastructure, to enable fast turnaround of transactional and regulatory communications by our skilled and dedicated team in an increasingly regulated world.”
