In the early 1980s the company formed a new printing blanket converting division to offer additional services to their customers. Alden’s son, Joe, took over the management of Premier Blanket Services Inc. and today is its president.
Alden & Ott is still family-owned and operated, a rarity in today’s fast-paced business environment of mergers and acquisitions. Tom Alden is president of the printing inks companies, John Alden runs the lab and Ted Alden is in sales.
Alden & Ott Printing Inks has transformed itself many times since 1957. Today, the company is an all-purpose ink manufacturer developing custom solutions for both the offset and flexo printing markets.
