Cenveo Consolidates Anderson Litho
LOS ANGELES—The printing community in Southern California has suffered a jolt with the loss of two very familiar names.
Anderson Lithograph of Los Angeles, one of the most prominent printers in the state, has been consolidated into ColorGraphics by its parent company, Cenveo Inc. In an April 15 letter to customers, Anderson Litho President Mark Tennant said the move is in response to the economic downturn.
“It is important to note that we fully expect to maintain the same top-rated service to our customers,” Tennant wrote. “We have the same state-of-the-art equipment, the same quality output and the same familiar faces.”
It was not known how many jobs would be impacted by the move.
In early March another prominent Los Angeles printer, Insync Marketing Solutions, filed for Chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy. The company had been formed by the combination of Insync Media and Graphic Press.
According to the bankruptcy filing, Insync owed its primary secured creditor, Wells Fargo Bank, roughly $10.7 million. Its assets, including two Sunday web offset presses and four Heidelberg Speedmaster sheetfed presses, are to be sold at auction on June 24.
