Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) December 22, 2009
December 17, 2009. BCT announces a number of acquisitions of printing companies throughout the United States.
“We are pleased to announce a number of completed acquisitions over the past year in thirteen different markets,” said Peter Posk, President of BCT, Inc. “Our plants in Upland, CA, Minneapolis, MN, Garden City Park, NY, Phoenix, AZ, Norcross. GA, Des Moines, IA, Austin, TX, Houston, TX, Pittsburgh, PA, Tampa, FL, Las Vegas, NV, Laguna Hill, CA and Norfolk, VA have all completed acquisitions of printing companies in their respective geographies.”
The plants acquired have all been consolidated with existing operations.
“We have made investments in four color printing equipment, finishing equipment and technology at an aggressive pace over the past several years,” noted Posk. “This has enabled plants to increase products, services and solutions offered to our customers.”
“Also, over the course of the last several years, changes in the print industry and the economy more recently have been detrimental to many print businesses. Some printing companies may not have made the investments in equipment or technology necessary to compete, so many have decided to exit the business.”
“Also, much of the traditional customer base has consolidated and larger national, multi-unit retailers and distributors are today’s key service providers,” explained Posk. “They require local service, fast turn times and advanced online technologies. BCT is uniquely positioned to due to our extensive North American plant footprint to offer the solutions that centralized or smaller local print providers cannot match,” offered Posk.
Posk concluded, “The acquisitions add to BCT’s scale in these markets and our new customers now have access to a broader range of solutions and expertise. It’s positive for everyone.”
