Jasmine eyes growth as it acquires exhibition and design team
A leading Aberdeen communications company has acquired a media and design company as it targets growth.
Jasmine, which merged several businesses in 2016, has acquired D2 Marketing, a design, event planning and advertising agency.
The deal comes as D2 Marketing agrees a new contract with new exhibition venue TECA, to deliver three large-scale consumer exhibitions over the next 12 months.
Jasmine, which employs 35 people, is an Aberdeen-based communication business engaged in marketing, advertising, PR, print, digital media, emergency media response and document management solutions.
As part of the acquisition, D2 Marketing’s five members of staff will move to Jasmine’s headquarters at New Jasmine House, East Tullos. D2 Marketing’s managing director, Allan Smith, will become head of Business Development at Jasmine, and Julie Murray will become the company’s creative director.
Danny Cowie, Jasmine managing director, said: “I am absolutely delighted to welcome D2 Marketing into the Jasmine fold. I have admired D2’s work and sub-brands for a long time and we have worked very well together in the past. I have known both Allan and Julie personally for many years and know that they and the D2 team will be a very valuable addition to Jasmine.
“The deal will allow both Jasmine and D2 clients to benefit from the experience and expertise built up by both companies over the years.”
Allan Smith commented: “It is an excellent time for Jasmine and D2 to be joining forces. There is a great deal of synergy between us and we will be able to offer increased expertise and an even broader range of services to our clients. Danny and I have been friends for many years, and it has long been an ambition for us to work together. We look forward to getting to know the Jasmine team and continuing to work on exciting projects together.”
