LCM247 President Patrick Heaphy Says He Was Looking For a Partner To Round Out His Television Production Company
“Merging with Granite rounds us out on the digital development side, but we will be able to introduce Granite to our television clients,” Heaphy said.

Take for example Patrick Heaphy, who over the past 30 years built the Pearl River-based LCM247 into a television production company to be reckoned with. But now Heaphy is taking a gamble – rather than continue the singular journey of building the digital production side of his business alone, he’s folded his talent and experience into a merger with an Irish concern that has more expertise and reach in this space.
Granite Digital, a full-service digital agency based in Dublin, has acquired a 75 percent stake in LCM247’s digital business. LCM247’s dozen experienced digital specialists, along with Granite’s team of more than 110, will form a new entity, LCM|Granite, which will have offices at Blue Hill Plaza in Pearl River, as well as in Cork, Dublin and Galway. The television production functions of LCM247 are not part of the acquisition.
