Pitney Bowes, Orion Create Print Management Firm
STAMFORD, CT—Orion Holdings, a unit of Interpublic Group (IPG), and Pitney Bowes have launched a strategic partnership enabling Orion to create a new unit, Orion Printing. This unit will focus on supplying print management solutions to IPG companies globally with a mission of leveraging the holding company’s worldwide print spend to create savings and increased value for clients.
Through Orion Printing, IPG companies will gain access to a fully managed print service, a global network of print solutions, project management and technologies to deliver enhanced service and quality with cost effectiveness to clients.

Clients spend a significant amount of money on printed marketing materials and we know Orion Printing can drive significant savings for them. We’re also exceptionally lucky that an executive with Robert’s depth of experience will be leading this effort.”
