C2 Expands Capabilities With Acquisition of Robins Signs

Expansion of C2 Will Enhance Service and Grow Its Color Product Offerings

COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 12, 2012) - C2, the largest privately owned reprographics firm in Southern California, announced its December 2011 acquisition of Robins Signs, a sign company serving Southern California since 1910. The values and stability of the 100-year-old company perfectly complement the good old-fashioned service model that C2 was founded upon.

Former Robins Signs customers will benefit from the availability of additional products and services. C2's clientele will find a wider depth and breadth of digital capabilities and color & sign production. Combining the expertise of a century in business with C2's state-of-the-art technology and color specialists make C2 a powerful one-stop shop for sign production and installation.

Robins Signs President Bob Burandt will continue to lead and operate Robins Signs, doing so as part of C2's color product offering, within the C2 headquarters.

"Bob's leadership has contributed to the longstanding success of Robins Signs, and that's something we couldn't just replace," says Gary Crisp, President of C2. "He's great with customers, and his expertise and dedication to customer service are important assets that we know will benefit all of us as we move forward as a single company. We've always considered our people to be at the core of our success, and Bob is a shining example."

The expansion brings C2 the additional equipment, vehicles and personnel to further develop its capabilities as a full service sign and installation provider. C2 previously delivered architectural renderings, marketing materials, construction and trade show signage under its C2 Color Studio Division. The division is now able to produce and install any form of non-electrical signage including: vehicle graphics, dimensional signs, parking signage, menu displays, vinyl cut lettering, sight signs (Braille), ADA signs, fleet graphics, dimensional lettering, safety signage, trade show graphics, banners, exhibits and displays, back-lit displays, monument signs, lobby signs, warehouse signage, equipment identification, window graphics, POP signs, wall graphics, city pole signs and street banners.

"We've always prided ourselves in the premier quality of our work and consistent service, and that's what kept clients coming back during more than a century of service," says Burandt. "Robins Signs and C2 really enhance each other's brands. We're embarking on an exciting new chapter in the business, and I'm enjoying the experience of being a part of that."

Gary and Julie Crisp founded C2 in 2002 and made its staff and customers a priority from the beginning. Their successful approach led to rapid growth resulting in seven (7) offices in Orange, Los Angeles, San Diego counties and the Inland Empire -- a feat accomplished by outworking and outperforming competitors.
