Princeton business brokerage firm Benjamin Ross Group sold the business-to-business manufacturing company Blanc Display Group to a private investor.
Blanc Display Group designs and manufactures point-of-purchase displays, signage, sign holders and store fixtures, primarily for supermarkets and food manufacturers. The Dover-based company’s manufacturing capabilities include screen, digital offset and digital large format printing, plastic extruding, woodwork, wire work, metal work, vacuum forming and various types of plastic fabrication.
According to BRG, Blanc Display Group’s signage and displays “help boost sales and build brands.”
“The Benjamin Ross Group just helped me sell the business I started 35 years ago, at full asking price. The experience and professionalism Michael Meyer and his team brought to the process was invaluable, and their guidance and attention to detail instrumental to its successful outcome,” founder and former owner Didier Blanc said in a prepared statement. “His dedication to a successful sale was impressive. My business was sold in just under six months from when the business was put on the market. I couldn’t have hoped for a better outcome and a better experience. I recommend the Benjamin Ross Group to anyone who is thinking of selling their business.”
Blanc established the business in 1986 when he started selling signage to food manufacturers and supermarkets as part of a college project.
Over the following years, the company expanded organically and through acquisitions of other complementary businesses, including award-winning point-of-purchase design and manufacturing business Brinker Displays in 2008. Two years later, Blanc acquired supermarket signage company WP Sign Systems, known for more than 70 years as Washington Poster. In 2014, Blanc broadened its merchandise line to include custom and stock wire racks and displays with the acquisition of Wire Displays Inc.
