Cenveo Expands Footprint in Northern California, Buys Waller Press
Press release from the issuing company
ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 27 -- Cenveo, Inc., one of North America's leading providers of visual communications services, today announced the acquisition of Waller Press, a high-quality web and sheetfed printer located in San Francisco. When the capabilities of Waller Press are coupled with the Cenveo Anderson Lithograph capabilities in South San Francisco, the company will be the largest commercial printer in the San Francisco area.
"The San Francisco Bay Area is one of the largest markets for advertising and graphic arts," said Paul Reilly, chairman, president and CEO of Cenveo. "The Waller acquisition will allow Cenveo to provide both the local and nationwide markets with a unique set of services from the company's web and perfector presses as well as from their large in-house bindery."
The recent acquisition of Waller Press marks the second by Cenveo in recent months and a significant expansion of the company's west coast presence and capabilities. Waller's equipment and capabilities will add web, sheetfed and bindery equipment to service the northern California market, which has often been at the forefront of advertising, graphic design, and marketing communications. The acquisition is also in line with Cenveo's strategy to invest in geographical areas that provide local market share growth.
"The purchase of Waller Press will fulfill our goal to better serve the changing and growing needs of advertising agencies and corporate customers throughout northern California," added Reilly. "Together with our Cenveo Anderson Lithograph facility, we can now provide northern California customers with easy access to one of the broadest selections of web and sheetfed color printing solutions from 10, 8, and 6-color presses, in one geographic locale."
"Waller Press has been an integral part of the Bay Area graphic design community for over 60 years because we have always focused on the ever- changing needs of this fast-paced market," said Dan Schmidt, chief operating officer of Waller Press. "We look forward to continuing this tradition with added resources and support as a part of Cenveo."
