ELMSFORD, N.Y.--May 6, 2002--Enovation Graphic Systems, Inc. announced today the acquisition of Taylor Impression, Inc., a dealer to the graphic communications industry headquartered in Nashville, Tenn. Taylor Impression has served the graphic arts industry since 1946 and today consists of five branch locations throughout the Southeast, including offices in Nashville, Knoxville, Memphis, Little Rock and Chattanooga. As part of Enovation, the branch locations will continue to provide customers in Tennessee and Arkansas and portions of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Kentucky with a superior selection of graphic arts products, services and support options.

"And it is with that fervent conviction that we continue to uphold our promise of providing 'best in class' products with unparalleled service and support." "Taylor Impression's philosophy has been to service what we sell," stated Thornhill, who added that the concept behind the formation of Enovation Graphic Systems, Inc. was "truly innovative and our becoming part of this company, with its vast resources and industry recognized personnel, will help us to strengthen our commitment to existing and new customers."
