HELENA, Ala. –Nov. 8, 2016 – Mspark, a results-oriented print and digital media distribution company with the proven ability to deliver measurable results in rural markets across America, today announced that it has acquired Market Select Inc., an independently owned, direct mail advertising business located in eastern Pennsylvania that reaches more than 500,000 households 12 times per year.
“This acquisition is a big win for Mspark as we continue to execute our growth plan,” said Steve Mitzel, chief executive officer of Mspark. “We are very excited about building upon the relationships that Market Select has established with their national and local clients.
