November 8, 2012, Tinley Park, Illinois. SPi Global, through its subsidiary Laserwords, has acquired Tighe Publishing Services, a full-service educational development house in the K-12 educational marketplace. This acquisition positions Laserwords to take advantage of the burgeoning opportunities in the educational publishing business in the United States.

“Tighe’s editorial, design, and content development capabilities will complement Laserwords’ strength in production with conversion, digital, and technology services for educational publishers,” said Michael O’Brien, Executive Vice President of Laserwords/SPi.

“The acquisition of Tighe allows Laserwords to become a leading supplier in the educational publishing arena,” said O’Brien. “Clients of both companies see this acquisition as a welcome development for the future of their businesses.”

O’Brien added that before the acquisition, Laserwords had established itself with school publishers. However, Laserwords needed an experienced editorial and design team to compete for major publishing projects. The acquisition of Tighe fills that gap, with Laserwords now being positioned to compete for larger educational programs.

Suzanne Tighe, President of Tighe, recognized Laserwords’ vast experience in digital content development, offshore and conversion services, and new offerings and services for mobile content and digital services. “Laserwords’ areas of expertise constitute advantages for Tighe because they complement our strengths in content development and design,” said Tighe.
