The YGS Group, a graphics communication service provider based in York, Pa., has completed its acquisition of Reprint Management Services (RMS), a provider of custom reprints, content licensing and a number of other services for publishers. The acquisition includes all of the services offered by RMS. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“The YGS Group combines the editorial expertise of Reprint Management Services, with the graphic talents of York Graphic Services,” says Dan Fineberg, director of marketing for The YGS Group. “[The acquisition unites] two companies that have a deep history and partnership. It’s this comprehensive offering of services that will allow us to partner with publishers and associations at all stages of their content.”
RMS will continue to operate out of its Lancaster, Pa. facility while serving as the reprint management division of The YGS Group.
“RMS has developed very strong brand recognition in the marketplace over the past 17 years. We are looking to leverage this presence and enhance the selection of services we take to market,” says Jim Kell, Jr., president and CEO of The YGS Group. “With over 250 publisher partners, this transaction will only serve to benefit our current publishers and customers. The over 600 publications represented by RMS have been extremely well managed, and I am confident we will continue to provide publishers with the highest level of quality service, along with a more robust selection of products and services to meet their growing needs.”
