Just over one month ago we announced the intention to sell afcomponents.com, and today I am thrilled to say that the site has been acquired!
The new owner is a Raytown-based ProContent, who is excited and very capable of taking AFComponents to new heights. ProContent has been developing Flash / Flex solutions since 2002 but are best known for their work on Flash-based content and Amazon-branded cloud services.
Before making the decision, we reviewed a number of offers, and ProContent stood out for their technical expertise, strong product portfolio, solid understanding of the interactive space, and established presence. Most importantly, the guys have shown a strong commitment to continue to develop AFComponents and grow the community. All in all, it is a great fit!
After working on AFComponents for 5 years (more on that in the next post), it is extremely rewarding to know that the project is in good hands. I look forward seeing it grow under the new leadership.
All the best to ProContent and AFComponents!
Update: Denver Business Journal – UMapper sells Advanced Flash Components
