Fingerpaint Marketing, the health and wellness marketing agency in Saratoga Springs, has acquired the California-based market access and commercialization firm 1798.
The acquisition took place earlier this year.
Fingerpaint works primarily with health care, biotech and pharmaceutical companies.
1798 is a 60-person team located on La Jolla, Calif. The agency specializes in health consulting services to medical device, pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies. The company is named after the year in which the modern health insurance system was created.
Bill McEllen, a partner at Fingerpaint, said the coronavirus shutdown has not slowed down the integration process of the two companies.
