Flat River Group Acquires Impressions

Flat River Group, LLC announces the purchase of Impressions Game Distribution Services, a California-based game consolidator. Impressions will join Flat River Group as a division with the Impressions business unit continuing to run out of its Fort Wayne, Indiana location with current staff. The change will be effective January 1, 2019.

Aldo Ghiozzi, owner of Impressions explained, “For over seven years, Impressions and Flat River Group have developed a strong working partnership fostering excellent communication and efficiency. They are the perfect partner to take Impressions into a new era.”

“We are excited to bring Impressions into our family. The strategy game category is strong for us, and Aldo brings us over 20 years of history and expertise in the field”, said Flat River Group president Matt Stahlin. “Aldo has been a great long-time supplier partner to us. We started to talk about how we could help him operationally and the talks evolved into an outright purchase. It’s a tremendous fit for both companies.”

Game publishers will benefit from this partnership, offering a host of business-to-business services under one roof. For more information regarding distribution to mass market retailers, wholesale to distributors worldwide, Kickstarter fulfillment or details about the new acquisition, please contact Matt Stahlin at matt@flatrivergroup.com or Aldo Ghiozzi at aldo@impressionsadv.net.
