Rogers Acquires Lucarelli Designs & Displays
October 26, 2021 – Mentor, OH – The Rogers Company, an award-winning designer and manufacturer of branded environments, today announced its acquisition of Lucarelli Designs and Displays.
Lucarelli Designs and Displays provides design, fabrication, and production services of custom trade show exhibits, corporate interiors, and meeting spaces. Founded in 1981, Lucarelli has experienced tremendous growth, supporting over 400 clients and completing more than 8000 projects. This acquisition will enable continued growth and provide additional products and services to Lucarelli’s customer base.
As one of the top exhibit houses in the nation, The Rogers Company owns and operates more than 165K square feet of storage and fabrication space in Mentor, Ohio, and Las Vegas, Nevada. Rogers’ products and services include custom booth design, a large rental inventory, access to thousands of modular and portable booth properties, interactive, A/V and virtual technology, lead collection and tracking, roadshows and museum exhibits, corporate environments, and international reach. In-house design, graphics, production, I&D, and storage services round out the company’s suite of experiential marketing solutions.
Both based in greater Cleveland, Rogers and Lucarelli share more than proximity and industry. Dan Lucarelli, founder of Lucarelli Designs and Displays, got his start in the industry when Van Rogers, founder of the Rogers Company, hired him as a designer and sales representative in the 1970s. In keeping with this tradition, Rogers also hired the entire Lucarelli staff as part of the acquisition.
“We greatly value the existing relationships between the Lucarelli team and its clients. Bringing Bill Lucarelli and his team over to Rogers was a given,” said Rick Busby, President of The Rogers Company.
“This acquisition greatly expands our product and services offering,” said Bill Lucarelli, former President of Lucarelli Designs and Displays, now Senior Account Executive at The Rogers Company. “We are confident this merger will better serve our clients now and in the future.”
“At Rogers, we are proud of our reputation for providing world-class customer service,” added Rick. “We welcome the Lucarelli client base and look forward to exceeding their expectations for quality, value, and service.”
