FFR Merchandising Announces New Acquisition

Twinsburg, Ohio-based FFR Merchandising has announced its acquisition of Chicago’s retail display and commercial extrusion company Pexco LLC. The deal will further expand FFR’s capabilities and U.S. manufacturing capacity, while also reducing retail lead times and affording improved access to new product solutions. Pexco’s businesses and teams in Chicago will undergo a transition to FFR over the next six months.

“This acquisition allows FFR to serve our customers even better, delivering more solutions, faster,” says Stan Burson, FFR president and CEO. “It also demonstrates our continued commitment to being the industry’s first choice for innovative merchandising, loss prevention, shrink management and labor reduction solutions.”

“FFR has long been regarded as a focused leader in the retail display industry and, like Pexco, is dedicated to providing superior customer service and products to its core strategic segments,” adds Pexco CEO Neil Shillingford. “Employees from our Chicago operation and point-of-purchase extruded products teams look forward to joining the FFR family and bringing to customers in the Retail industry an expanded range of in-store merchandising solutions that can help them enhance customer engagement and drive sales.”
