WHO WE ARE

iMBranded was founded in 1996 with one objective: to create value for the world’s greatest brands through dynamic projects that embrace the appreciation for superior customer experiences, strong execution and market leading quality.

Recognized as a national leader that specializes in both architectural millwork and large format graphics, our ability to manufacture with consistent quality and expert craftmanship is unmatched within the industry.


HISTORY

Jim Whitehead is the CEO and owner of iMBranded, a premier architectural millwork and large format graphics company located in Pontiac, Mich. What began as an idea for graphic solutions for the fledging snowboard industry in 1996, is now a nationally recognized business within the automotive, retail, and hospitality sectors.

As an avid snowboarder, Whitehead saw an opportunity in the early days of the industry to add some excitement and developed a series of graphics to enhance a snowboarder’s individual identity. Shortly thereafter, Whitehead quickly entered the newly formed Large Format Digital Printing market and became an early adopter in what is now a $20 billion market. With this newfound opportunity, Jim entered the automotive retail space and helped enhance the automotive buying experience with innovative graphics and signage in dealerships around the country.

He expanded iMBranded’s capabilities to developing quality furniture and cabinetry to compliment the graphic business and is now a national leader in designing and building environments for some of the largest brands in the automotive industry.

Today, Whitehead, a lifelong entrepreneur and Michigan resident, employs more than 130 people at iMBranded’s state-of-the-art millwork and large format graphics manufacturing plant and continues to expand his vision beyond the automotive sector, now serving the national retail and hospitality businesses as well.
