SuperGraphics Employee Buyout

March 8, 2019

On November 1, 2018, SuperGraphics, a leading Seattle based provider of large format graphics for Environmental and Retail applications, has been purchased by a group of employees and an industry expert.

The new management team is excited and has hit the ground running to ensure a smooth transition for all projects and customers.  All SuperGraphics production employees were retained and a concerted effort to add additional professionals to the growing team is underway.  The new ownership team includes veteran SuperGraphics principle partners Josh Carl, Rob Sullivan, and Zac Thorpe.  Furthermore, Reid Baker, a 27 year print veteran, has been added to the ownership mix as a principal partner and President.  The combination of the current and new team will deliver great results for its growing customer base.

SuperGraphics is very grateful to the leadership team at GM Nameplate for fostering the opportunity to complete the buyout. Baker was especially impressed with the mentorship provided by GMN and gratefully states:

“First and foremost, we would like to thank GM Nameplate for their stewardship of SuperGraphics through this process and for its investment in the large format marketplace for the last 18 years.  We appreciate everything you have done for us and the industry.”

SuperGraphics looks forward to servicing its customers from its Seattle location in Interbay.  As it looks to the future, SuperGraphics will be investing in new technology, services, and people to expand capabilities and growth. Already recognized as the leader in vinyl print and installation in the Seattle marketplace, SuperGraphics is expanding its capabilities in environmental décor and large scale retail graphic campaigns.  New services are being implemented to service complex retail needs including e-commerce, POS, POP, and nationwide installation execution.
