Spiral Ownership Acquires James Burn North America
TOTOWA, NJ—June 4, 2007—The ownership of Spiral Binding Co., Inc. (“Spiral”), a leader in document finishing equipment and supplies, is proud to announce effective today it has acquired the James Burn North America (“JB”) division of James Burn International, now referred to as James Burn USA, LLC.
Since 1907, JB has been a leader in wire products in North America and conceptualized the “Wire-O™ double loop binding wire.” Today James Burn USA, LLC manufactures wire and coil bindings in Poughkeepsie, NY and Atlanta, GA and with Spiral’s broad line of equipment and supplies, James Burn customers will have access to a wider range of binding, laminating and finishing products.
This acquisition creates the largest family owned Document Finishing Company in America. Adding two more locations to Spiral’s current seven locations allows us to provide even faster delivery at lower freight costs to our customers. In addition, James Burn USA along with its lineup of dealers, will distribute the James Burn International product line in North America. This includes the Lhermite DocuPunch, AlphaDoc, EX380, and the Wire-O-Binder (WOB).
“This is our first major acquisition, and we are confident this will be very beneficial for Spiral and our customers. Both companies bring talented industry professionals, important business contacts and strong customer service values to the table. We look forward to this new stage in Spiral’s history,” stated Robert M. Roth, President of Spiral.
