Vertis, American Color Graphics complete merger
Vertis Inc. has successfully completed its prepackaged Chapter 11 plan and its merger with American Color Graphics this week.
The new combined company, headquartered in Baltimore and unified under the Vertis Communications brand, has 100 locations worldwide and nearly 8,000 employees.
“The successful restructuring and merger joins two industry leaders to become a robust, dynamic and exceptional company,” said Mike DuBose, chairman and CEO of Vertis, in a statement. “United, we are solidly positioned to provide premier targeted marketing solutions through multiple channels.”
The new Vertis Communications has greater capability to deliver results driven marketing programs for customers from strategy development through point of sale.
The merger integrates American Color's 15 production facilities, including offset and flexographic print facilities, a Total Market Coverage location and premedia facilities and numerous managed service sites into Vertis.
