Interactive agency Razorfish
, New York, is expected to announce this week that it will open an office internationally. It is expanding its operations with the acquisition of two interactive companies, CHBi in London, and Plastic in San Francisco. CHBi is an interactive agency; Plastic is a design and consulting shop. The acquistions are Razorfish's first forays outside of New York. Razorfish, part of Omnicom's Communicade network, will now have 150 employees and combined revenues of $20 million.
Domestically, the company is still working on the absorption of Avalanche Systems. Razorfish bought Avalanche in January, and a few months after trying to maintain both brands, decided to eliminate the Avalanche brand.
