Orbus Exhibit & Display Group (Woodridge, IL) has announced that the company has acquired Fabric Images, "an industry pioneer renowned for design and expertise in the science of fabric architecture," according to a statement released by Orbus.

The merger combines Orbus Exhibit & Display Group’s service, quality, print capability and portfolio of signage, portable, modular, fabric structure and custom exhibit and display solutions with Fabric Images’ award-winning, custom fabric architectural solutions for exhibits, events, hospitality, retail and commercial interiors, also per the statement.

“The addition of Fabric Images to the Orbus Exhibit & Display Group family of brands elevates our design and print capabilities in building materials, printed textiles and fabrics," said Giles Douglas, president and CEO of Orbus. "Together we now offer our customers an unmatched combination of elegant design, speed, quality and service in fabric structures, fabric architecture and fabric printing.”

Fabric Images CEO Marco Alvarez will become part of the executive team at Orbus, teaching and leading the engineering, design, and consultancy-driven approach to custom fabric architecture with a much larger combined team. “Becoming part of Orbus provides our customers with expanded resources and capabilities across North America, adding a Las Vegas and Canadian facility in addition to a vastly larger Illinois facility,” he said.
