Showdown Displays Announces Acquisition of Soft Signage Manufacturer Xarisma
1/3/2019
Showdown Displays, North America’s leading supplier of portable lightweight event displays, announces it has acquired Xarisma, an industry leader in custom soft signage based in Huntsville, Alabama.

“Xarisma’s creative branding solutions and innovative display development is an ideal complement to the current offerings of Showdown Displays,” commented Kevin Walsh, President of Showdown Displays. “We’re equally excited to bring the added production capacity, expanded facility space and Xarisma’s expertise and talent in custom fabrications to the Showdown family.”

This acquisition signifies a joining of like-minded and culturally compatible companies that have been offering comparable products lines to slightly different reseller channels. Once integrated into the Showdown Displays® brand, the combined entities will offer a more comprehensive suite of both stock and custom portable lightweight display solutions. The combined entity will operate as Showdown Displays® and will remain committed to providing a comprehensive offering of innovative display solutions only through authorized reseller partners as the industry’s only true “trade-only” supplier partner.

“Showdown Displays is the undisputed industry leader in portable, lightweight displays.” Commented Jon Houser, a Xarisma owner and Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Houser continued, “The entire Xarisma team is excited about the synergies this acquisition represents as well as the opportunity to leverage each company’s strengths to accelerate our overall growth.”

The corporate headquarters for Showdown Displays will remain in Brooklyn Center, MN. The current Xarisma offices and 85,000 square foot production facility in Huntsville, Alabama, and its 90 team members, will complement the Showdown Displays facilities and talent force.
