Toof Commercial Printing and American Digital Merge

Monday, January 07, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

Memphis, TN based companies, Toof Commercial Printing and American Digital, have completed a definitive agreement whereby the two companies have merged operations effective January 1, 2013.  This union offers new and existing customers of both operations greatly expanded capabilities and will result in a strong new alternative in the Mid South marketing and communications marketplace.

Toof and American Digital will continue to operate under their current trade names as separate divisions but will offer all services as a one-stop source for digital or offset printing, direct mail and fulfillment services.  The new combined structure will enable both companies to continue to develop their expertise and deliver the individual strengths their respective clients have come to expect.  On another level, expertise and technologies will be combined to leverage dynamic cross platform products and services.

Combined capabilities of the companies will include high-end digital printing, direct mail and variable data management, wide format printing, offset sheet and web printing, finishing, as well as a multitude of e-commerce based fulfillment and distribution services.

Kim Webb, owner and President of American Digital, stated “I believe that a customer’s communication and marketing efforts can be greatly enhanced utilizing the combined print technologies of the new company.  As an outcome, customer results can then be leveraged well above what the individual print technologies could do alone.”  Mr. Webb also stated “These two companies believe that these changes are particularly important in an economy where every marketing or communication dollar spent must provide the best return on investment possible.”

Rick Smith, Toof’s Chief Operating Officer, added “We are extremely excited to bring the digital expertise and capabilities of American Digital Printing under the Toof banner.  It’s rare to find a combination of two healthy printing companies, each with diverse customer bases, which when brought together can serve each of its respective customers with a much broader range of products all within one operation.”

Toof Commercial Printing, founded in 1864, is the oldest and largest commercial printing operation in the Mid South serving customers nationwide from its two Memphis based facilities.  American Digital was founded in 1998 and serves customers based throughout the United States.  All of Toof’s 95 employees and American Digital’s 17 employees will be retained as part of this transaction.
