Hutchison Allgood Joins Forces with Graphic Visual Solutions, $5-Million Investment Planned

“By combining operations, we will offer enhanced capabilities and solutions to our customers that will be among the best in our industry. Combining with Hutchison Allgood was perfect because of the similar culture, ethics and the common commitment to our employees and customers,” he added.

“We are excited about the opportunity to combine our resources with those of Graphic Visual Solutions in order to provide expanded capacity as well as new formats and product lines to our many customers,” commented Hutchison. “I am certain that the core values which have guided Hutchison Allgood since its inception in the Triad some 81 years ago are the same ones we admire today at Graphic.

“We see a bright future ahead for our combined organizations, and will be working very hard to ensure a continuation of our commitment to our customers’ success and expanding professional growth opportunities for our employees,” he continued.

Hall sees this acquisition and new investment in equipment as a means of providing even better quality, service and printing capabilities to customers of Hutchison Allgood and Graphic. Customers of both companies will now be served by one of the strongest privately held printing and graphic communication companies in the Southeast.

“Our commitment to investing in the best technology and team members in the industry will provide continuous improvement in service, value, and quality to our customers” said Hall. “We are excited to have the highly talented and professional employees of Hutchison Allgood, who bring over 1,000 years of combined printing experience, join our already outstanding team at Graphic. We are also looking forward to the opportunity to service the printing and packaging needs of each of the customers of the combined operation.”

Hall adds that GVS is open to future acquisitions if the fit is right and if it will make the company a more valuable resource for its customers.
