Gemini Announces Acquisition of Identification Plates Cannon Falls, Minnesota-based Gemini, manufacturers of dimensional letters, logos and plaques, announced its recent acquisition of Mesquite, Texas-based Identification Plates Inc., manufacturers and distributors of custom and stock metal products. Through this partnership, Gemini says it will now offer a broader range of products and services while Identification Plates (ID Plates) holds onto its family-like work culture, according to the company. As Gemini was looking to expand its plaques product lines, the company began to see opportunities in the nameplate and badging markets. During the investigation, Gemini continued to run into customers of ID Plates. "Gemini has long been an admirer of Identification Plates for (its) commitment to (its) customers, (its) diverse product lines, and longevity in the industry," says Fred Oss, presi- dent of Gemini. Gemini initiated a conversation with ID Plates about how it might work together, which morphed into a full-fledged acquisition. SDG email us at to find a dealer near you.
