The Harman Press Obtains Fox Printing
NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA—Continuing the expansion of its commercial printing business, and the consolidation of union printers in the San Fernando Valley area, The Harman Press has acquired Fox Printing and its staff. Both companies are family-owned.
Founded in 1943, The Harman Press delivers digital, as well as lithographic printing services for a wide range of commercial clients including major motion picture studios such as NBC Universal, 20th Century Fox, and independents such as The Weinstein Co. The Harman Press is known in political circles as print providers for local, state and national campaigns over the years. Other clients include health care giant Kaiser Permanente, and national businesses such as top auto auctioneers Gooding & Co.
Harman Press President Philip Goldner said, “We are pleased to welcome Gary Fox and his team as they join with us to continue to deliver the same high quality and dependability to their customers and our own. By doubling our sales force and adding new equipment, we look forward to expanding our business into the future.”
Founded in 1936 by Dorothy and James Fox, Fox Printing has been headed by Gary Fox since 1980. Customers include the building trades, entertainment trades, Teamsters and many other unions.
“With Fox Printing joining The Harman Press, this makes Harman the strongest union printing facility in Southern California,” said Gary Fox. “Phil Goldner has a firm grip on the future and is a good leader. I think our customers will be more than happy.”
The move brings Fox salesmen Todd Fox, Doug O’ Neil and David Wardlow under the Harman Press banner and offers Fox customers the increased capacity of Harman’s equipment, as well as digital printing and customized online storefront ordering. Former Coronet Printing sales executive Demetrius Crump has also joined the team.
The Harman Press re-located in January 2013 from its longtime address in Hollywood to a larger facility in North Hollywood. Fox Printing will be closing operations at its shop, shifting all sales and production activity to The Harman Press, effective immediately.
