International Litho Acquires OMNIOctober 1998
He expects OMNI to generate $20 million to $25 million in sales this year and International Lithographing to draw $35 million to $40 million. He also expects to make other acquisitions—though he won't get into specifics. He will, however, describe the type of companies that appeal to Taconic.
Taconic is on the lookout for high-quality offset printers, laser production centers and lettershops with expertise, growth potential and demanding customers. Petrou says he works best with demanding customers.
"We've discovered our best customers tend to be the most knowledgeable about printing," he says. "They come to our companies because we are able to deliver the solution they need better than anybody I know."
