Group Four, Strategic Design Come Together

BOSTON–Seeking to gain critical mass in the Connecticut marketplace, Group Four has merged with Strategic Design Corp.
Frank von Holzhausen remains president of Group Four, Avon, Conn.; Charlie Merritt, president of Strategic Design, Southport, Conn., becomes vice president of Group Four. Financial terms were not disclosed.
“This gives us both strength, particularly in New England, in integrated strategic services, product design and graphics,” said Merritt, who had worked at Group Four several years ago.
The combined company has roughly 40 full-time employees as well as a large network of contractors. Clients include Rubbermaid, Sunbeam, Unilever and Panasonic.
