Acquisition strengthens the Jacksonville based company's presence in the opportunity-rich Atlanta marketplace

“For 78 years, Drummond has remained committed to finding new ways to add more value to our growing customer base – and that’s exactly what this move accomplishes,” said John Falconetti, Chairman and CEO of Drummond.

Drummond is pleased to announce a deal to acquire Sunbelt, an Atlanta-based print and communications provider. This step brings together two organizations which share significant synergies, and strengthens Drummond's presence in the Atlanta marketplace. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Drummond, a rare three year recipient of the Best of Print and Digital Award, is excited that this transaction will strengthen the company's leadership team, capabilities, and service offering by adding:

  • State-of-the-art technology - which optimizes workflows involved in creating and distributing branded materials
  • Digital printing capabilities that enhance personalized marketing projects including direct mail campaigns
  • Advanced finishing capabilities that save time and cost for document and booklet production
  • A growing team of management, sales, support and technical experts serving the Atlanta area

“For 78 years, Drummond has remained committed to finding new ways to add value to our growing customer base – and that’s exactly what this move accomplishes,” said John Falconetti, Chairman and CEO of Drummond. “This is a merger of two highly compatible firms. We hold similar values and business philosophies: providing excellent solutions for the client, an emphasis on honesty and integrity, and the importance of bringing accountability to our work product.”

This is Drummond’s third investment in the Atlanta area. In 2012, the company purchased Graphic Communications Corporation (GCC), expanding its geographical footprint outside of Florida, as well as enhancing its offering around wide format printing, packaging solutions and operational logistics. In 2015, the company purchased the print division of RGI enhancing its digital marketing services offering. Drummond now operates three production facilities in Jacksonville and Atlanta.

Sunbelt has specialized in providing custom commercial print, print management and marketing solutions since 1991. As a result of the continued growth by loyal customers, Sunbelt strategically decided to join the Drummond brand, renowned for excellent client care and meaningful solutions.
