In the fourth quarter of 2019, Condit Exhibits officially acquired Exhibit Source, Inc. (ESi) of South Holland, IL.
Condit Exhibits has enjoyed phenomenal growth over the past decade. With a growing number of customers domestically and internationally, the need for a second manufacturing facility became apparent to our CEO Mike McGowan. An increase in our client base in both the Midwest and Northeast pointed to Chicago as an ideal location.
Located just 20 miles south of downtown Chicago, ESi was established in 1983, servicing clients in heavy industries, manufacturing, healthcare, and technology. ESi’s talented and industrious team is an optimal fit for our company culture as well as their shared tenets of exceptional customer service, collaborative creative process, and superior craftsmanship.
“I am very excited for our acquisition of Exhibit Source, Inc. Robert and Marilyn Hopkins have created an incredible company over the last 35 years, and we are dedicated to continuing that tradition of excellence. Both of their sons, Aaron and Daniel, will remain on our staff and will ensure that we don’t lose any of the things that make ESi what it is today. My plan is for both companies to learn from each other and bring the combined organization to a whole new level.” – Mike McGowan, CEO
Kevin Trainor, longtime senior manager at Condit, has been named president of ESi. With more than 25 years’ experience in the trade show and exhibit industries, Kevin is working diligently to ensure the smoothest transition possible for ESi’s existing team members and clients.
“ESi has a loyal client base built up over many years, and it’s easy to see why. Quick response times, outstanding attention to detail, and impeccable execution have earned them their business year after year. It’s the quality of the staff here that has guaranteed their success, and I couldn’t be happier to have this chance to work with them. When you add in the additional services that Condit’s Denver facility offers, the outlook for both organizations, and their clients, is very bright.” – Kevin Trainor, President
In 2020, Condit will celebrate a momentous 75th anniversary. Our senior leadership looks forward to the tremendous potential afforded by this timely acquisition as well as the opportunity to continue providing turnkey exhibit solutions and exceeding industry standards.
