Advanced Digital Graphics Joins With F.Y.I. Inc.
SAN RAFAEL, CA—Advanced Digital Graphics, based here, a full-service commercial printer serving San Francisco Bay-area needs, merged late last year with Dallas-based F.Y.I. Inc., one of the leading providers of document and information outsourcing solutions. Terms of the merger, completed Dec. 23, were not disclosed.
ADG specializes in markets such as telecommunications, financial, software, computer, corporate, educational, healthcare, manufacturing, retail advertising and design firms. The company was founded in 1983 by Steven D. Skolnik, president.
"After much research and consideration, there were a number of factors that made the decision to become part of F.Y.I. a wise one," Skolnik says.
"First, it was the philosophy of the organization itself. F.Y.I. believes in maintaining a large degree of autonomy for firms such as ours because each firm has unique customer relationships, which are important to preserve. Second, becoming a member of the F.Y.I. family will enable ADG to offer their customers a greater choice of expanded services available through the sister companies and over a much broader geographic area."
As a result, Skolnik adds, ADG will become a single-source provider of document management services to its customers on a nationwide basis. Plus, he notes, the value systems of the two entities were a good match.
"[F.Y.I.] believes in customer commitment—customer service, positive employee relations and constant improvement," Skolnik points out. "All of these values are strongly shared by the management of ADG."
ADG is a high end, small- and medium-format printer. Among its services are complete electronic prepress, Xerox DocuTech output and Heidelberg two- and five-color sheetfed offset commercial printing. The company sells to a diverse group of customers that require a variety of products requiring multiple product lines.
F.Y.I. serves clients in information-intensive industries such as healthcare, law, banking, insurance and government. Founded in 1994, the company employs more than 5,000 workers in 110 facilities, located in 35 states, Puerto Rico and the Grenadines.
