CINCINNATI — After 27 years at Milacron Inc., John Effmann has purchased a Cincinnati marketing communications firm, Immediate Services Inc.
Effmann and his partner, Jeffrey Caudill, renamed the firm Symphony Communications LLC. The firm used to be a unit of Milacron, which makes plastics machinery. In 1997, Milacron made the operation a stand-alone business, but retained ownership. Effmann and Caudill bought the company from Milacron.
Effmann's most recent title was vice president of parts and service. Before that, he was vice president of marketing services for Milacron's Plastics Technologies Group in Batavia, Ohio.
Symphony employs 36. Its services include printing business forms, photography, digital imaging, video services and Web site development.
Milacron remains a major client, but Effmann said Symphony wants to grow its base.
The company is located at Milacron's former headquarters complex in Cincinnati.
