Jason buys AD to enter digital signage
In a strategic move, rapidly growing WA operation Jason Signmakers is acquiring a majority share in digital signage business AD Engineering.
Jason Group is taking a 75 per cent stake in ADEI. The restructure sees its director, Peter Harris, continuing in a leadership role with a focus on reinvigorating the business.
The move is the latest in new business growth activity Jason Group has undertaken since it launched JV company Sista Girl Sign and Print earlier this year and added Expo Signage and Digital and Bokay Signage to its Group last year.
John Mancini, managing director of Jason Group, said: “The addition of ADEI is exciting for a number of reasons. First, it allows the Jason Group to become a complete solution of static and digital solutions.
“Secondly, with new engineering capability, it allows our group to bring innovative, focused thinking to our customers in roads, construction, and mining.
“And thirdly, it means our group of companies benefit from shared capability to deliver successful major projects nationally. In fact, with increased capabilities in large scale project management, ADEI are ideally placed to support upcoming projects recently announced by the government – WA roads project boost of $868m.
"ADEI has experience in delivering technical electronic solutions to a national client base. This includes the successful delivery of the largest full colour traffic VMS in Australia, installed at Melbourne’s Tullamarine airport."
