Cardinal Colorprint Acquires Genesis Press

CHICAGO—Commercial printing, fulfillment and distribution firm Cardinal Colorprint has acquired Genesis Press of Itasca, IL. The newly-combined firm will be called Cardinal/Genesis. Production will continue at both locales, with all bindery, mailing and fulfillment operations centralized at the Itasca plant.

Patrick LeBeau, formerly of Cardinal Colorprint, will serve as president of the combined organization. Bob Moore, former president of Genesis Press, will remain with the new company as a senior vice president. This Genesis Press is not to be confused with the Genesis Press of Greenville, SC, which recently won a $14.5 million jury verdict in its lawsuit against insurer The Hartford over a fire claim nonpayment.
