Milwaukee-based RCB Awards has acquired Artistic Engraving of West Allis and Premier Awards of Fort Atkinson.
Artistic Engraving specializes in contract engraving. RCB will retain most Artistic Engraving employees and plans to convert currently underutilized warehouse space at its 6,300 square-foot Capital Drive facility to accommodate for increased production.
RCB Awards works with companies and individuals to create programs and products that recognize achievement. The purchase of Premier Awards and Artistic Engraving will add an additional 25 percent to RCB's existing customer base, which includes clients such as Jockey International, Aurora Health Care, and GE Healthcare.
"Our business grows every year, and we look forward to servicing the new customers from Premier Awards and Artistic Engraving," said Curt Denevan manager of sales for RCB Awards. "The industrial and contract engraving work that Artistic Engraving does is a perfect fit for our growing wholesale operation. We look forward to another good year in 2013."
