After a whirlwind year of combining two large companies into one, we are flattered that our efforts are being recognized by the community. Edwards Brothers Malloy was recently nominated to receive an award at the 2012 Deals of the Year ceremony hosted by Mlive Media Group’s Ann Arbor.com. The event which was started in 2005 by the Ann Arbor Business Review, highlights companies who have made deals that create an enormous positive impact for their communities and the region. The winner will be announced November 2, 2012 at the ceremony held at Eastern Michigan University’s student center.
A driving factor in our nomination was the combination between Edwards Brothers and Malloy Incorporated. The combination was announced in February of this year and was motivated by increased pressure on the printing and publishing industries from the proliferation of technologies such as tablets and eReaders. Some of the positive impacts of the combination were that both companies became stronger and hundreds of jobs were made more secure for members of our community. As we move forward, focusing on quality service and heavy investments in information technology will be what sets us apart from our competition and helps secure our place in a world of changing media consumption habits.
According to AnnArbor.com, Deals of the Year winners are kept secret until they are unveiled at the November 2, 2012 event. Governor Rick Snyder will be speaking and the event is hosted by radio personality Lucy Ann Lance.
