SPi Global, through its subsidiary Laserwords, has acquired Tighe Publishing Services, an educational development house for the K-12 market. “Tighe’s editorial, design, and content development capabilities will complement Laserwords’ strength in production with conversion, digital, and technology services for educational publishers,” said Michael O’Brien, executive v-p of Laserwords/SPi. The acquisition, O’Brien added, will better position Laserwords to compete for major el-hi publishing projects.
