An Aberdeen communications company which is finalising its rebrand today revealed its acquisition of two North-east printing businesses in a six-figure deal amid plans for further growth.

Jasmine is the new brand for the recently merged company uniting print-management firm Printagraph, communications agency Citrus:Mix, document-solutions provider Revolve Systems and event-management company 46 Degrees.

It said it has completed its purchase of Scottaspress in Aberdeen and P Scrogie in Peterhead, collectively known as The Printer. P Scrogie is the former publisher of the Buchan Observer newspaper, which has been owned by The Scotsman parent group Johnston Press since 2007.

Jasmine also explained that it has 42 staff and will offer a “unique” service in Scotland, covering all corporate communications from concept-creation to campaign-implementation.

Danny Cowie, managing director of Jasmine Group owner Jasmine Holdings, flagged plans to expand the business in the North-east “while also looking to develop further afield”.

He said: “We are the only company in Scotland which offers a full communications service which we hope will help us stand out from the crowd.”

Jasmine Limited boss Andrew Hall added: “We’ve had a busy few months finalising the purchase of Scottaspress and P Scrogie which now puts us on a firm footing for the future and is a positive move for our customers too.

“We are very proud of our new Jasmine Limited brand and the significant skills and experience we have across a range of communications services.”
