Advantage was a start-up from the in-house marketing department at Bruneel Tire Company. Mr. Christopher who was then the Ad Manager for Bruneel operated the agency from ’86 to ’87.
He then purchased 100% of the agency on January 1, 1987. The firm then began an aggressive new business push that resulted in its growth from the region’s 4th largest advertising agency in 1987, to the largest by 1992. In 1993 the Advantage began to focus on new business from more regional accounts by targeting several potential larger clients who were headquartered in or had a large presence in this market. In 1999, with several clients of that category on board, the company began to focus on regional and national business. During these years of growth, the company has assembled the region’s most talented and experienced group of employees. The current client list features a unique blend of many of the area’s leading retailers along with hospitals, colleges and universities. Advantage has been recognized for its creativity with several national, multiple regional and countless local awards.
Advantage is a full time, full service agency engaging in advertising, marketing and public relations services continuously, successfully and profitably for more than 30 years.
Most recently, Advantage acquired Digital Barn Productions to complement its growing portfolio of agency client services. Digital Barn was originally founded in San Jose, California, in 1996 and relocated to Lewiston in 2000. Today the two companies operate independently under common ownership and under one roof.
