NEWTON, Mass. — EverPresent, Inc. today announced the acquisition of Just8mm.com. This merger brings together the Northeast’s largest full-service family memories company with the nation’s leading film transfer specialist. For EverPresent, this combination represents a significant strategic shift into the national market.
“Just8mm clients will continue to enjoy the service they are accustomed to preserving their priceless home movies, and on top of that will have new access to best-in-class services to do the rest of their family memories project,” said EverPresent Co-Founder & CEO Eric Niloff.
In just seven years EverPresent has grown from a husband-and-wife basement shop to a 76-person team with 40+ locations throughout the New England and Tri-State areas. The company’s success derives from offering services beyond basic digitizing for VHS tapes, photos and slides – including preservation of delicate scrapbooks, detailed organizing of digital files, family history mini-documentaries, custom-designed family photo and recipe books, and more. EverPresent will now be introducing these special services to Just8mm’s national client base.
Randy York, founder of Just8mm.com, said, “I couldn’t be happier that EverPresent is the group to keep the Just8mm.com tradition going. My employees and I have spent over 15 years building this brand and company, and I wanted it to go to someone who respects what we do. EverPresent is one of the true innovators in our industry. This is a real win for my clients.”
EverPresent has traditionally received over 80% of its business from clients in its home Northeast region, with business coming in via its retail store locations and through in-home services. With this acquisition, 30-40% of EverPresent’s client base will now be spread out nationally.
“We became a company offering nationwide service by accident. People kept finding us,” said Eric. “We looked up and said – ‘we have the procedures in place, we’ve served clients in all 50 states via mail, The Wall Street Journal wrote us up – so let’s just do this.’ Just8mm.com is the perfect way to properly introduce everything we do to a national audience.”
The Just8mm.com website and brand will be maintained for the foreseeable future. All Just8mm.com clients will now be served out of EverPresent’s brand new 16,000+ square foot state-of-the-art lab in Newton, MA.
Headquartered just outside of Boston in Newton, Massachusetts, EverPresent was founded in 2012 with the goal of becoming “the leading memories company” for families. EverPresent’s team of over 70 photo organizers, scanning and video transfer technicians, book designers and video editors is trusted across America to digitize irreplaceable old home movies and photos, organize unwieldy digital photo and video collections, and convert these cherished memories into custom books, videos and mini-documentaries. EverPresent’s mission is to make photos and videos “everpresent” in people’s lives and a source of pure joy. Its belief is that these important projects bring families closer together across generations by allowing families to continue to share their stories.
