Ad company expands services

AllOver Media an advertising company, has changed its name from AJ Indoor Advertising and recently moved from Carew Tower to Longworth Hall. Its new address is 700 West Pete Rose Way, Longworth Hall 3C.

"Our business has grown substantially over the past few years, and we were running out of the capacity needed to support that growth," said company president David Habisch.

AllOver Media has more than doubled its square footage and will hire one new sales rep, Habisch said.

It is expanding its offerings to include media products such as truck wraps, telephone kiosk ads and gas pump-top placards. Indoor advertising, sometimes called ambient advertising, specializes in highly targeted messages placed in locations such as health clubs, restaurants, restrooms, garage lobbies and retail establishments.

The company has been in business for four years.

Although it is locally owned, it is affiliated with other AllOver Media agencies throughout the country.
