Brown Printing, Clear Lake Reach Accord
WASECA, MN—Magazine and catalog printing specialist Brown Printing has forged a strategic alliance with fellow Waseca-based firm Clear Lake Press, a supplier of magazine, catalog and direct mail components for 25 years. The deal sees the two companies pooling their respective strengths and resources in order to better serve their customers with a more comprehensive suite of printing solutions.
“This alliance is important for both companies,” said Dan Nitz, president of Clear Lake Press. “Brown and Clear Lake Press will become stronger in their respective niches by working together and will be able to serve existing and prospective customers more efficiently.”
Mike Amundson, CEO of Brown Printing, added, “The ability for Brown Printing to continually improve and expand its array of print and marketing solutions is critical to our continued success in the very competitive markets we serve. Entering into an alliance with Clear Lake Press will allow us to better serve our customers and make it easier and more cost efficient for them to do business with us.”
To facilitate expected alliance synergies, Dan Nitz will join Brown Printing in June as the executive vice president of manufacturing and distribution. Chris Waldron, current director of operations for Clear Lake Press, will assume Nitz’s leadership responsibilities at Clear Lake Press.
