Obtains Assets of Southwest Color

LIVINGSTON, MT— (PFL) has acquired certain assets of Southwest Color of Tucson, AZ. Details of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Southwest Color is a great addition to our company and will be an important component for our future success and growth,” said Andrew Field, CEO of PFL. “We fully expect to explore further strategic acquisitions in 2012.”

“Everybody in this venture is going to benefit immensely,” noted Southwest Color owner Chad Smith. “Both companies have something different to offer and I look forward to working with PFL to expand our product offerings to both of our customer bases.

“Southwest Color has digital and variable data printing capabilities that support both companies,” he added. “We call on a different group of customers (than PFL), so there’s not much overlap. We will be able to sell what PFL does, which is primarily short- to medium-run offset work, and have the firepower of PFL’s industry leading e-commerce platform, which is extremely important.”
