Sandow Acquires Material ConneXion and Culture & Commerce

Sandow has acquired Material ConneXion and its sister company, Culture & Commerce, the premier design management firm in the US.

The acquisition marks an important step forward in the growth of both companies, as well as for Sandow as it continues to expand its services and further solidifies its position in the design world.

"We are thrilled to be joining the Sandow team. Adam Sandow truly understands our vision, and we are excited to become an integral part of the Sandow platform, taking this business to the next level.

I have every confidence that the future of both companies is in great hands and will continue to grow through his expertise and burgeoning network," said Founder of Material ConneXion and Culture & Commerce, George M. Beylerian, whose primary focus going forward will be to provide vision and direction, support the growth of the company's international licensing program, and render ambassadorial duties.

The acquisition comes on the heels of Material ConneXion's announcement that it will open 10 Material Libraries throughout China by 2017, beginning with Beijing in October 2011 and Shanghai and Guangzhou in 2012.

This year, the company will also launch a new online Materials Database.
