The union creates one of the largest commercial print companies in Orange County, and provides increased financial strength to continue investments in cutting edge manufacturing equipment and service offerings. The company will operate under the name OCPC – formerly Orange County Printing Company – in Irvine, CA, where sales and manufacturing will operate. The combined organization will continue to be wholly owned by Consolidated Graphics, Inc., Houston, TX (NYSE: CGX), one of the largest US commercial printers with manufacturing locations in 27 states, Canada, the Czech Republic and Japan.
“This is an exciting, promising time for our customers and our local marketplace,”
“This is the best thing to happen to Woodridge and OCPC,” says Jeff Olschwang, President of Woodridge Press. “We’re now a complete representation of Consolidated Graphics’ possibilities, all in one location. With advancements in digital printing, fulfillment and warehousing, we have outstanding potential to support the marketplace. We will continue to pursue opportunities aggressively.”
Added Miguel Jacobowitz, Chief Operations Officer at OCPC, “We’re a much stronger force together than we were apart. Between our two teams we have some of the brightest minds in the industry. The blending of our talent ensures the growth of continued innovation and unparalleled customer service and solutions.”
The merger is planned to be completed by March 31st.
