"Sandy Alexander has built a brand that is known for technical innovation, quality, and customer satisfaction and we are thrilled to be a part of it."

This is a unique opportunity to add a highly complementary operation to our existing Orlando and Tampa Bay locations. We look forward to providing ACG's current and prospective customers with an even larger array of product offerings through our traditional and technology-enabled printing and service capabilities."
"We are pleased to welcome ACG to the Sandy Alexander family," said Anthony Chirikos, partner at Snow Peak Capital. "We are eager to support the team through this next chapter and we plan to continue to expand the platform through organic initiatives as well as through disciplined M&A."
