Sun Prairie, Wisconsin – Royle Printing is pleased to announce a definitive merger agreement with W.D. Hoard & Sons, whereby W.D. Hoard’s printing business, located in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, will be merged into Royle’s print operations. The merger will take place over the next 60 days; terms and conditions of the agreement were not disclosed.
The merger will allow Hoard’s print customers to take advantage of Royle’s very modern and efficient manufacturing platform. Chris Carpenter, President and Owner of Royle Printing remarked,
“We are delighted to have the W.D. Hoard print operations become part of Royle Printing.
