IDENT Makes Strategic Acquisition of Indy Graphics
We are very pleased to announce that IDENT has purchased the oil and gas Regulatory Sign division of Indy Graphics Group in Red Deer, Alberta. This strategic decision allows Indy to focus on their commercial sign and apparel business and IDENT to continue its focus on our core competency as Western Canada’s leading regulatory sign supplier.
Our team is fully specialized in the energy industry; we carry certificates in H2S Alive and TDG, plus we’re all well versed on how businesses should transition to WHMIS 2015. We’ve also invested in Industry leading technology and printers over the years to assure rich print quality and longevity of our products. Our weather testing standards are basically unheard of in the industry! We believe in providing the utmost quality to our customers, that’s why we rigorously test our signs against the extreme weather conditions typically found in British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. Stop by our office if you want to see the before and after of our oilfield signs, our internal weather testing machine will blow your mind! Our products are designed to withstand years of wear and tear in the field.
IDENT began helping customers oil & gas customers in Alberta in 1982 with a vision of providing exceptional service and unparalleled knowledge to assist clients with their regulatory and compliance signage needs. We decided to seek an acquisition because we believe that consolidation in the marketplace will allow us to improve efficiencies and strengthen our position to serve you in your field better. IDENT hasn’t grown in employee size; we are still at 14 people in our Calgary, AB office. We believe this is an ideal size to serve our customer's needs effectively. This acquisition of Indy’s Regulatory Sign business is another step in IDENT’s long-term commitment to the oil and gas industry in Western Canada.
We are proud to be in this field!
