Concerted and Mainline Merge Operations

GRAYSLAKE, IL — January 1, 2007 — With the beginning of a new year, Concerted Systems and Mainline Publications have officially merged their operations into one organization. The company will operate exclusively as Concerted Systems.

“We believe it is time to integrate Mainline’s design and communication services with the technology expertise of Concerted, and it makes sense to have one identity,” stated Steve Oelschlager, the founding principal of Mainline and a managing partner of Concerted. “Starting in January 2007, we will phase out the Mainline name, but we will still continue to offer the same design services — website design, print design, identity work, and marketing communications — supported by more advanced technology services.”

Mainline began operations in 1990 as a graphic design and communications services firm. Its clients include DuPont, Northwestern University, DePaul University, and the Milwaukee Ballet.

Concerted Systems LLC was launched in 2005 by Steve Oelschlager and Taskin Rahman to develop new ticketing and registration software for Discovery World, a new science and technology museum in Milwaukee.
