Harrogate-based Impression Studio has acquired digital agency, FLOCC for an undisclosed sum.
Norwich-based FLOCC works with clients including Sir John Hurt Film Trust and the University of East Anglia.
“I’m delighted to have added FLOCC to our business. It was clear from initial discussions that the values, expertise, client base and culture of FLOCC aligned so closely with our own, and the skills and capabilities of the existing FLOCC team will add significant value to our offering, and vice versa,” said Impression’s CEO and founder, Charlie Hartley.
“As a growing and ambitious agency, this acquisition enables us to operate more cohesively in East Anglia, expand the group’s overall service offering, continue to recruit outstanding talent, and inject new life into our service delivery and client services.”
The deal takes the company’s total headcount to 17, working across Impression, sister agency, Next Chapter and now FLOCC.
It also increases the agency’s digital development capabilities, with the FLOCC team specialising in Sanity CMS and React.
“We’re really excited to welcome FLOCC’s team and clients to the business and have already identified a wide range of opportunities following the expansion of our service offering and capabilities, which will no doubt be of benefit to Impression, Next Chapter and FLOCC clients alike,” added Daniel Swepson, Head of Marketing at Next Chapter.
FLOCC’s founder and Managing Director, Mark Merrywest, will exit the business.
