Ovation Graphics Acquires Motheral Printing

Monday, June 04, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

After 78 years of family ownership, Jim Motheral, President of Motheral Printing Company, announced the company has been sold to Ovation Graphics LLC.

Ovation Graphics recently purchased Fort Worth’s Branch-Smith Printing and is affiliated with Ussery Printing Company of Irving. Daniel Hanson, Ovation’s President, said, “We are delighted to announce this acquisition and to welcome the Motheral Team to our growing family. Our intention is to continue to build the finest print group in the Metroplex and to consolidate our operations into Motheral’s 150,000 square foot facility located near DFW airport.”

Motheral Printing is known nationally as a high quality printer offering commercial printing, catalogs, special interest magazines, corporate literature and packaging products.

In 2004, Motheral expanded to its current CentrePort location, and rapid changes in technology coupled with the lingering effects of the recession eventually triggered the decision to sell.

“Motheral Printing is proud to have been a leader in the printing industry for over 78 years. It was in the best interest of all of our stakeholders to sell the business to an organization who could combine our capabilities with others to offer expanded services,” Motheral said.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
