Former Nationwide Firm McQuiddy Sold; Plant Closed
NASHVILLE, TN—McQuiddy, a Nationwide Argosy Solutions company, has been sold to Geographics Inc. of Atlanta, according to The Tennessean.
Most production workers and all but eight salespeople have been laid off. McQuiddy's catalog, magazine and direct mail production has been transferred to Geographics' Atlanta facility.
McQuiddy Printing was started by J.C. McQuiddy in 1903 and remained family-owned until it was sold to Master Graphics in 1988. Nationwide assumed management of McQuiddy in 2001 after Master Graphics filed for bankruptcy.
Houston-based Nationwide Argosy now consists of six companies: Franklin Dodd Communications; Jones Co.; Offset Atlanta; Page International Communications; and The Whitley Group.
