i.M. Branded helped to brand the Detroit Grand Prix

PONTIAC, Mich., June 5, 2018 – Race fans attending the Detroit Grand Prix on Belle Isle last weekend were surrounded by the work of i.M. Branded. From the grand two-story entryways to the brightly colored 10-foot maps, each piece was made by i.M. Branded to enhance the customer experience on and off the island. All together i.M. Branded produced over 250,000 square feet of material for the Detroit Grand Prix.

i.M. Branded makes a big impression throughout metro Detroit. The company has produced large format graphics for automotive manufacturers and dealers in Michigan and around the country with more than 7 million square feet of automotive graphic branding. In doing so, i.M. Branded has changed the face of metro Detroit and dealerships across the U.S.

Its exceptional work has powered the Pontiac-based company to achieve 120 percent revenue growth year-over-year with a growing base of more than 125 employees and an ongoing list of job openings, particularly in the production and craftsman departments. It has led to i.M. Branded becoming the market leader in installing automotive related wall art each year, covering millions of square feet of space.

“We continue to make investments in cutting-edge technology given our expectation for explosive growth in the demand for large format graphics,” said i.M. Branded Founder and CEO Jim Whitehead.

Two of the automotive “Big Three” have i.M. Branded graphics on their headquarters locations seen by millions of consumers each year. The General Motors’ world headquarters at the Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit and FCA’s Group North American headquarters adjacent to I-75 in Auburn Hills, Mich. both feature building wraps produced and installed by i.M. Branded.

Since 1999, i.M. Branded has produced well over 20 massive graphics for the FCA headquarters in Auburn Hills, featuring a variety of Jeep and Chrysler models. The company was most recently selected as a furniture and graphic vendor for the Jaguar Land Rover Project ARCH program in addition to the already established programs developed with other OEMs, further strengthening the company’s status as an industry leader i.M. Branded has also produced graphics and millwork art for more than 10,000 auto dealerships across the U.S

“We are seeing significant growth on the graphics side of our business along with ongoing growth in our core millwork business,” Whitehead said. “We’re proud of being one of influencers that have helped to brand Detroit and the Motor City in recent years.”

i.M. Branded continues to invest in its Pontiac-based headquarters along with its graphics and millwork technology, Whitehead said. The company is the industry leader in producing custom graphics, millwork and displays for automotive OEMs and dealerships. The company’s cutting-edge building wraps often include high-definition LED lighting and illumination features, which is just one example of how i.M.
