It's a Joint Venture!

by: Marketing Team on

In case you hadn’t already heard, it’s been all go here at AlphaGraphics recently. Not only has our Newcastle office re-located from the Quayside to Pink Lane, home to some of Newcastle’s finest digital agencies, we’ve also entered into a joint partnership with one of them!

Under the new partnership, AlphaGraphics has acquired a 30% shareholding in digital marketing and e-commerce agency, Venture Stream. Going forward, Venture Stream will provide digital marketing services to our clients to complement and expand on our print marketing services. 

Whereas we have a long established reputation as a national commercial marketing and print services business, specialising in data-driven, multi-channel marketing, Venture Stream is a fast growing digital marketing and e-commerce agency who’ve grown to £1 million turnover in just three years.

We first began working together early this year, with Venture Stream providing digital marketing services to our internal School Diaries business. In an increasingly competitive marketplace, we’ll both be uniquely positioned to offer an end-to-end range of marketing services, from innovative print campaigns to all aspects of digital marketing.

With the investment from AlphaGraphics, Venture Stream plans to invest further in its people and technology to expand its capacity and deliver a complete digital solution to help its client’s online businesses grow.

Vic Morgan, Managing Director at Venture Stream, commented: “We’re excited to announce our partnership with AlphaGraphics, one of the few high-growth, profitable commercial printers due to their continuous investment in technology and innovation.

“The partnership fits perfectly with Venture Stream’s view of the evolving world of marketing, which is becoming less about utilising digital marketing channels in isolation and more about how technology and an integrated marketing approach is enabling businesses to become smarter in all functions and aspects of communication. Together as partners we stand unique in the marketplace.”

Sean Costigan, AlphaGraphics Director, added: “We’re pleased to be able to extend our partnership with Venture Stream. Vic and his management team have built a strong business with an impressive client base and the team’s result-oriented approach mirrors our philosophy with clients.”

“With our investment, we’re pleased to be backing Venture Stream and introducing our clients to a complete range of print and digital services. We feel by leveraging each other’s strengths we can truly enhance our client’s marketing campaign returns.”

AlphaGraphics currently operates out of five offices nationally and the businesses have plans to launch joint ventures together in the coming months, focused on web-to-print e-commerce solutions.
