Federal Heath, a Texas-based sign sign company, has acquired selected assets of Rochester Hills-based Advance Graphic Systems (AGS), a provider of signage, graphics, custom building elements, retail fixtures, and displays.

The acquisition provides Federal Heath with an established customer base of large retailers, design firms, architects, turnkey solutions companies, construction businesses, and exhibit houses. AGS also adds to Federal Heath's capabilities in the areas of design, prototyping, digital printing, fabrication, installation, inventory, and fulfillment services from warehousing to distribution.

"AGS has kept pace by developing new product lines and expanding their services," "The addition of AGS will enable us to provide even more 'value added' presence to our clients.

"The acquisition supports our strategic progression, fosters an innovative learning experience between AGS and our existing Racine printed graphics plant and, most importantly, continues to support our customer base while providing them with solid offerings and business solutions that support their own expansion opportunities," Federal Heath President Sid Rasnick said in a statement.

"We are very excited about this opportunity to become part of Federal Heath, where a company of our size can make a big impact because of our unique capabilities," AGS Sales Manager Jeff Hall said. "By combining the talented and dedicated staff of both companies, we can continue to expand and diversify our product lines and service offerings to existing and new clients."
