MMG acquires Barewalls Interactive Art.


SAINTE GENEVIEVE, MO — Missouri Moulding and Glass (MMG), Inc., a full-service wholesale framing and fulfillment company, has acquired Barewalls Interactive Art, Inc., along with its flagship online art print and poster store, http://www.barewalls.com. First launched in 1997, Barewalls.com was one of the first businesses to capitalize on the growing demand for art prints and poster sales made available over the Internet.

“We’re very excited about this opportunity,” says Margaret Nohr, President and Chief Executive Officer of MMG. “By combining MMG’s experience, know-how and infrastructure with the Barewalls.com brand and technology, we will be able to offer all of our customers an unbeatable service.”

With more than 10 million visitors per year, Barewalls is one of the Internet’s most popular destinations for wall decor shopping, offering imagery, ranging from expensive print-on-demand content to traditional art prints.

“This is an auspicious moment for our company,” says Daniel Spira, co-founder of Barewalls. “We’ve developed a strong relationship with MMG as a supplier, and we know they have what it takes to bring Barewalls up to the next level.”

Barewalls will close its Canadian division and will be relocating its customer service and other key positions to MMG’s headquarters in Sainte Genevieve, MO.
