Itera ASA has through its subsidiary, Itera Gazette, bought the digital agency Visual Funk. This will strengthen Itera Gazette's digital business further.
With this acquisition Itera Gazette wants to take a clear position in an industry where demand for digital communication services increases. Itera Gazette knows Visual Funk well through several cooperative projects in the past year.
- The acquisition of Visual Funk is part of Itera Gazette's offensive strategy to enhance our digital focus. Visual Funk will strengthen our environment further with its skilled professionals. They represent an exciting and innovative environment that complements us well. For our customers this means that we take a broader approach to the total digital value chain, says Kristian Enger, CEO in Itera Gazette.
- This is in an exciting step for our professional environment; Itera Gazette's competence gives us a unique opportunity to further develop ourselves. We
will now also be able to get involved in projects at an earlier stage than we do as a sub supplier - which will benefit both our existing and new customers,
says Martin S. Hansen, entrepreneur and CEO of Visual Funk.
