Universal Millennium acquires Acme Printing Company
On January 27, 2010, Westwood, MA.-based Universal Millennium (“UM”), a portfolio company of Calvert Street Capital Partners ("Calvert Street"), acquired the assets of Wilmington, MA.-based Acme Printing Company, LLC (“Acme”), from the Matlet Group. The transaction brings together two of the largest and most respected independent graphic communications companies in New England, further expanding the depth of capabilities available to UM’s clients, and cementing a powerful foundation for the company’s further growth up the marketing services value chain.
“Acme has a rich history providing exceptional service and high quality commercial print and direct mail products to local, regional and national clients,” said Bill Fitzgerald, UM’s CEO. “Together, our company is even better positioned to provide customers with a powerful suite of capabilities–including Web-to-print, e-delivery, digital print, sheetfed print, heatset web offset, bindery, promotional products, fulfillment, distribution, mailing and data management services–across three state-of-the-art facilities.”
Brian Mahoney, a Senior Partner with Calvert Street Capital Partners, commented, “The Acme transaction represents the fourth acquisition in UM’s strategic “Buy and Build” growth plan. Acme supplements the company’s traditional print production platform while also advancing its ability to offer comprehensive marketing solutions, “from thought through distribution”, to achieve clients’ marketing objectives.”
