DAVENPORT, Iowa - June 27, 2014 - PRLog -- Davenport, Iowa - June 26, 2014 — With a long history of outstanding customer service and customer loyalty, The Brandt Company will cease operation of its commercial printing operation in Davenport in late June. The exact last day of production is yet to be determined.

“Our success came from a common vision that total customer satisfaction always comes first. For over 40 years The Brandt Company has relentlessly pursued perfection in our industry”, says Marc Brandt, President of The Brandt Company. “We’ve had thousands of satisfied customers who received the highest level of quality and service every time they chose us. We thank our employees and customers for 40 years of choosing Brandt.”

This news follows a recent acquisition of Fidlar Printing (Fidlar-Doubleday) as well as the print division of MultiAd, Peoria in 2012. These acquisitions helped to establish Brandt as a commercial printing leader, both regionally and nationally, specializing in brochures, catalogs, annual reports, short-run books, direct mail and sports-related items.

Brandt is partnering with Cedar Graphics of Hiawatha, Iowa, to transition its customers to an established printing services platform with enhanced access to marketing solutions. Cedar Graphics will retain the Brandt brand as services are transitioned to Cedar Graphics. Production will be handled from Cedar Graphics’ facility at 311 Parsons Drive, Hiawatha, Iowa. Sales and administrative offices will be maintained in both Davenport, Iowa, and Peoria, Illinois. Job opportunities for production staff will also be made available by Cedar Graphics.

“Making sure our customers continue to receive the same level of quality and satisfaction moving forward as they always have in the past is our immediate goal. Cedar Graphics has one of the best reputations and most current technology in the printing industry so we are certain that they will not only meet our customers’ expectations, but exceed them,” adds Brandt.

Like The Brandt Company, Cedar Graphics is a family and Iowa-owned business focusing on printing, packaging, and direct mail for the education, manufacturing, retail, healthcare, and hospitality industries. Cedar Graphics’ unique mix of advanced UV offset presses, digital printing, and marketing services will make for a smooth transition for Brandt’s customers and also translate to increased capabilities.

Cedar Graphics’ nearly 100,000-square-foot facility, outside of Cedar Rapids in Hiawatha, houses a full-service bindery, digital printing, mailing services, as well as traditional and online fulfillment. “The Brandt Company and Cedar Graphics have been mutually respectful competitors for many years, both in the Quad Cities and the Cedar Rapids – Iowa City Corridor,” Cedar Graphics CEO Hassan Igram stated. “It’s unfortunate to see any Iowa family owned business close its doors, but we are certain that Brandt’s valued customers and employees will experience a smooth transition into our family and will be excited to explore the opportunities and capabilities that Cedar Graphics will provide. ”
