Pitman Company, Totowa, NJ, USA, a leading independent North American graphic arts supplier, has announced that it has acquired National Graphic Supply of Albany, NY, USA. National Graphic Supply, founded in 1927, serves commercial printers within a 125-mile radius of Albany. In addition, it serves over 1200 daily newspapers nationwide including newspaper groups Gannett, Page Co-op and Scripps Howard.
“National Graphic Supply is a perfect fit for Pitman. They solidify our coverage of the commercial printing market in the Northeast, and their newspaper segment is very complementary to our own newspaper market,” said Joe Demharter, Pitman’s president.
Todd Kletter, president of National Graphic Supply, stated: “We have had a very enviable eight decades of financial success. Our printing business is the last remaining single branch operation and as such, we have made a decision to divest this business segment. We will continue to own and grow our law enforcement segment which will be known as National Law Enforcement Supply. In choosing Pitman to divest our printing business, we believe we have found a company that is good for our customers, manufacturers and employees.”
Pitman Company provides products, systems, service and support for both digital and traditional prepress and pressroom operations.
