Mittera has acquired Atlanta-based commercial printer, Geographics, Inc. Geographics is the leading web, sheetfed, digital printing, and fulfillment company in the greater Atlanta region. With nearly 100 employees, Geographics has a well-known track record of providing superb print solutions to clients ranging from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies. “With this acquisition, Geographics customers will now have access to one of the most robust manufacturing platforms, and complete suite of creative, marketing, data, and technology solutions in the country”, said Jon Troen, CEO of Mittera, “all delivered by a group of knowledgeable professionals with the core focus of providing the best customer experience in the industry.”
Sun Chemical will increase prices across its portfolio of publication inks in North America, effective June 1, 2021.
The continued escalation of raw material costs, increasing international and domestic freight rates, and shortages of key material inputs into the printing ink supply chain, have all contributed to this price increase.
“These inflationary pressures require us to raise prices in this market,” said Chris Parrilli, President of North American Inks, Sun Chemical. “Our goal is to continue to deliver the world class support and services our customers expect in order for them to meet their business objectives. We understand the pressures the publication markets face and will continue to investigate all opportunities to mitigate these inflationary pressures on an ongoing basis.”
As a leading ink supplier, Sun Chemical is working hard to mitigate rising costs by implementing internal improvement programs and maintaining very close communication with its suppliers and industry associations to ensure it is fully aligned to the latest procurement situation. Sun Chemical will communicate specific increases directly with its customers.
