NextPage Acquires Fellow Kansas City, MO, Firm Print Big Solutions
KANSAS CITY, MO—April 30, 2015—NextPage, a printing and marketing firm that was created from the 2013 merger of Mail Print, Graphic Services Printing and L&L Manufacturing, has acquired Print Big Solutions, the Kansas City Business Journal reported.
NextPage made some significant investments in the past two years that included investing $3 million in new equipment and $5 million to expand its facility. With this new acquisition, NextPage will expand into the large-format printing segment to produce products that include window graphics, large signage banners and wall paper, the paper said.
NextPage CEO Gina Danner told the Business Journal that the company plans to expand its facility in the Hunt Midwest's Subtropolis and will relocate from its current 4,000-square-foot location to an 11,000-square-foot facility at Hunt Midwest. She said the new location is expected to quadruple the company's production capacity.
"As we looked at the customers they [Print Big Solutions] served and the customers we served, there was not a huge overlap," Danner said. "So, it gives us the opportunity to sell NextPage's other services to the Big Print customers, as well as expand the offering that NextPage can offer its customers."
According to Danner, Print Big Solutions' owner and employees will be retained.
"NextPage is committed to the acquisition of the newest and most technologically advanced equipment that not only supports our current customers, but provides more. Joe Duffy, president and owner of Print Big Solutions, said in a release, "With their continued investment strategy and active leadership, NextPage is the place to be if you are in the marketing or printing industry. I'm excited NextPage will be able to lead Print Big clients to the next evolution of marketing service in a seamless and well-planned manner."
