Midtown Printing Becomes Modern Litho - St. Louis

Monday, January 12, 2015

Modern Litho of Jefferson City completes its strategic merger with St. Louis-based Midtown Printing with the final step of changing Midtown’s name effective January 1, 2015 to Modern Litho-St. Louis.

“We wanted to enter the market gradually to preserve the relationships and brand value Midtown Printing has established over the nearly 50 years it has been in business. Our results show we’ve gained ground and earned trust in the St. Louis area,” explains Darrell Moore, President of Modern Litho.

Since the merger, Modern Litho has continued its five-year upward trend of double-digit revenue growth. Investments in equipment, added staff and square footage have all resulted in an expanding client base at the St. Louis Midtown facility.                                        

Tom Auffenberg, President of Midtown Printing, added, “Now, together as a fully integrated organization, we are ready to serve the market with expanded capabilities and an enhanced sales and customer service team.”

As a result of this merger Modern Litho-St. Louis now offers:

  • 40” Press capabilities
  •  Enhanced digital and interactive print services
  •  Expanded direct mail and mailing services
  •  Advanced web-to-print technology, e-commerce and storefront capabilities
  • Large format print capabilities including signage and display graphics

Moore says customer-centric solutions will always remain a priority. “Our strategy from the beginning, which is why we merged with the award-winning Midtown team, has been to bring to the area both the best service and talent as well as the most diverse and state-of-the-art technology. It’s my hope that this merger and our results in the months to come prove Modern Litho-St. Louis synonymous with that mission.”
