ALPHARETTA, GA—August 3, 2012—New London Press, a full service printing, mailing, fulfillment and graphics company, announces an investment from Agilis Equity Partners and Valesco Industries. This partnership marks a new beginning for the company, which will operate under the name New London Communications. As a result of the investment, New London plans to expand its sales force and marketing initiatives, and enhance service offerings in targeted markets.

“Since founding New London in the late 1980s it has been a dream to create a unique company with unlimited growth potential. Diverse offerings and an internal positive culture have allowed the company to pursue this goal with much success,” noted said CEO Howard Givens. “As a closely held private company, growth has been limited to the constraints of limited financial resources.
