Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Growth Media North America, Inc is Vancouver, BC based company dedicated to quality Graphic Design, Web Design, and Branding. Along with it’s divisions Kinetica Print and ESP Print and Mail, Growth Media offers its clients a robust team dedicated to producing quality design and print products.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Growth Media North America, Inc offers commercial printing services to business across North America. Its first division Kinetica Print has been servicing clients for over 12 years. Recently, the company acquired ESP Print and Mail. This exciting acquisition allows the company to expand into the thriving Boise Idaho market. We saw an opportunity to enhance our capabilities, and service area compelling us to bring ESP Print and Mail into the Growth Media family. The synergies between Growth Media, Kinetica Print, and ESP Print and Mail were evident very quickly in the process which has translated into new and exciting opportunities for us and for our clients.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Growth Media offers Graphic Design, Web Design, and Brand Development services. Kinetica Print and ESP Print and Mail are commercial printing and direct mail operations. What this means in terms of products is that through our companies we are able to offer website creation, and print products such as business cards, brochures, posters, banners, signs, and more. Along with this, we are fully equipped to support Canadian and US businesses with their direct mail campaigns through Canada Post and United States Postal Services.
The overall diversity of our group of companies is unique in that we can take a concept and bring it to life both on the web and in the physical form of print. With a focus on understanding the true needs of our clients we work to being a partner and extension to their company to be a foundation of support for their growth.
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: Our goals for the next six months are to continue our path of growth. We are planning to enhance our print capabilities at Kinetica Print and ESP Print and Mail with some capital investments in new equipment. Lots of technological advances have been made for specialty finishes and manufacturing equipment. It’s our goal to find the right pieces of equipment that will benefit our current and any future clients so they have the ability to use the latest and best technology available for their print marketing.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: The first is that we strive to be more than a vendor. We work to be your partner. When we collaborate with and team up with our clients as an extension of their business they will get the most value out of us. When we fully understand a company and their needs we are advocates for them. We find ways to capture cost savings through materials, we optimize their purchasing through online portal access, we are able to enhance their quality control processes internally and externally amongst many other valuable outcomes.
The next is that we bring an enthusiastic and youthful voice to the print industry. Our team is comprised of all age groups, but we unify our team to positive, upbeat, and energetic customer service no matter what. This trait is especially rare in the print industry. In what many would consider a “traditional” business aka, a boring industry – we want to have a good time with our clients. We want them to find joy in purchasing print products. We take our business seriously, but not ourselves. We keep the experience as fun and light-hearted as possible so the experience is joyful on both sides. Life is too serious nowadays, it’s important to work with people that make you smile. That’s what we try to do every day in the company and with our clients.Activate Social Media:
