Enhanced Digital Printing and Herrmann Printing Unite to Expanded Capabilities

PITTSBURGH—Oct. 2, 2012—Enhanced Digital Printing (EDP) has completed a definitive agreement with Herrmann Printing and Litho (HPL), whereby EDP has merged into HPL. This union offers new and existing customers greatly expanded capabilities, and results in a strong, new alternative in the marketing and communications marketplace.

EDP and HPL will be operated under their current brands as divisions on one level, and as part of a group on a higher level. This structure will enable both companies continue to develop their expertise and deliver the individual strengths clients have come to expect. On the higher group level, expertise and technologies will be combined to leverage dynamic new cross-platform products and services.

Capabilities of the group will include high-end digital printing, variable data, full mailing capabilities, wide-format printing, offset sheetfed printing and a multitude of finishing, fulfillment and distribution capabilities. New services of the group will include cross-media marketing; multi-component project management and fulfillment; Web-to-print solutions; mid-run, hybrid-variable sheetfed printing; and many other customized services.

Both EDP and HPL believe that a customer’s communication and marketing efforts can be greatly enhanced utilizing the combined printing technologies of the new group. As an outcome, customer results can then be leveraged well above what the individual print technologies could do alone. The companies believe that these changes are particularly important in an economy where every marketing or communication dollar spent must provide the best return on investment possible.
