Dallas, Texas -- Wednesday, February 11, 2004 -- Two local printing companies have merged. Ussery Printing Company, Inc. and Impression Graphics said on Wednesday that they joined forces to create one organization that will “better serve the broader needs of our customers.”
“We will now have even greater capabilities to effectively handle both small and large format printing from one facility”, said Fran Ussery, President of Ussery Printing Company, Inc.
Ussery Printing Company, Inc. has 56 employees and had revenue of about $8.5 million last year. Impression Graphics has 20 employees and averages roughly $3.2 million in annual sales.
Both companies, long-time fixtures in the DFW Metroplex, have made their names synonymous with quality and each garner a multitude of printing awards every year.
The merged company will operate under the Ussery Printing Company, Inc. name and Impression Graphics will move into Ussery Printing Company, Inc.’s 31,000 sq ft facility in Irving.
