Custom Printing Acquires Ojai Printing

Friday, April 06, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Custom Printing announced today that Ojai Printing has merged with the Oxnard printer. The alliance gives Custom Printing added purchasing power and the ability to pass those savings on to the firm’s clients and makes the company the strongest printer in the tri-county area.

All operations will be conducted from Custom Printing’s 30,000-square foot facility at 2001 Cabot Place in Oxnard. The merger went into effect Monday, April 2.

“This is a win-win for everyone!” said Custom Printing President Charles Utts. “We are looking forward to working with Ojai Printing’s clients, and seeing how our Printing and Mailing facilities can benefit their businesses. Both companies have serviced the same geographical area, but we are very surprised how few of our customers were competing against each other. That’s probably why this deal went so smoothly.”

Utts added, “We are determined to place as many former Ojai Printing employees as possible in positions at Custom Printing”.

Al Milner, owner of Ojai Printing, is retiring and wanted to do everything possible to keep his loyal co-workers employed. Milner serviced the Ojai Valley for 40 years and has been a valued member of the business community.

“All digital files, current and archived, have been transferred to Custom Printing,” Utts said. “Probably one of the nicest things that worked in our favor is both companies are on the same estimating system so we’ll have no problem continuing the same pricing structure with  additional benefits from Custom’s larger facility.”

Custom Printing has been in business since 1974 and specializes in premium quality, full color printing. A family-owned business, the company’s list of customers includes K-Swiss Footwear Inc., Warner Brothers Studios and the distinguished artist Peter Max.
