Ex-Owner Pierce Reacquires Dingley Press From Sheridan
LISBON, ME—The Dingley Press announced that it has been reacquired by former owner, Christopher Pierce. The catalog printer was purchased from The Sheridan Group, a Hunt Valley, MD-based printing, publishing services and technology provider.
Pierce first became an employee of Dingley's back in 1972. Rising through the ranks, he was able to purchase the company in 1981. During the next 20-plus years, he grew the business beyond the $100 million sales mark, with more than 500 employees.
In 2004, Pierce sold The Dingley Press to The Sheridan Group. He stayed on with Sheridan, holding various leadership roles at Dingley, including CEO and chairman, until retiring in 2011. At that point, Pierce assumed the deputy commissioner of finance position with Maine's Department of Health and Human Services.
