Diamond Buys Mid-America MailersDiamond Marketing Solutions expanded its capabilities with the purchase of direct mail printing and fulfillment provider Mid-America Mailers, a Mid-America representative said yesterday.
The financial value of the transaction was not disclosed. Diamond Marketing will shut Mid-America's facility in Hammond, IN, and move the equipment 45 miles to its facility in Bloomingdale, IL.
About 80 workers were employed at Mid-America's Hammond plant. Most will receive offers to transfer to the Bloomingdale facility, though there is no indication of how many will accept, the Mid-America representative said.
Diamond Marketing will shift equipment and production jobs from Hammond to Bloomingdale through May. The transition will be completed in June.
Mid-America's continuous form laser and inserting capabilities will help round out Diamond Marketing's inkjet volume, sheetfed volume and fulfillment assets. Diamond aims to become a full-service print and fulfillment provider.
