JLA Home acquires Artboxx, Inc.
February 23, 2012,
FREMONT, Calif. — JLA Home has completed a 100% stock purchase of Artboxx, Inc., a supplier of commercial framed art, the home furnishings source announced earlier this week.
The acquisition includes Artboxx's two divisions, Intercontinental Art, a supplier of finished wall décor, and Art In Motion, a fine art publisher and art licensor selling in more than 70 countries around the globe.
"With strong home furnishings global branding coordinated across multiple divisions, framed art is a natural expansion of the JLA business model," said Edmund Jin, CEO, JLA Home. "Artboxx, Inc. is a leading supplier of framed art with virtually the same client base as JLA. The two companies fit neatly together with little overlap and much to gain from the synergies. There is a tremendous amount of talent within Artboxx that we will preserve and grow."
