Independent Media Agency Takes Formica into Programmatic Era

CINCINNATI (September 15, 2015) – Empower MediaMarketing, one of the nation’s largest independent media agencies, will serve as media agency of record for the Formica Corporation, a leader in the home category.

“Empower brings to the table a powerful combination of top-notch strategic thinking, creativity and extensive experience in the home category,” said Amy Gath, Formica North America Vice President of Marketing. “We are confident our partnership will drive continued growth and success for the Formica Brand.”

Formica is the latest brand to join Empower’s roster of home industry clients, which includes Shaw Floors, Champion Windows, Rust-Oleum and Gorilla Glue. Both Formica and Empower are headquartered in Cincinnati.
