“Invodo is a great addition to Industrial Color Studios, and we welcome its CEO, Eric Engineer, and his entire management team to our family,” says Steve Kalalian, CEO of Industrial Color Studios. “We’ve known about them for years and have admired their work, their business model and their position in the industry.
