Sunset Printing and Brand Management Solutions Acquires Remco Press Book of Business

Sunset Printing and Brand Management Solutions has acquired the book of business of North Bergen, NJ-based Remco Press, a small, family-owned shop. Graphic Arts Advisors, LLC, a national M&A advisory and consulting firm devoted exclusively to all sectors of the graphic communications industry, represented Remco in the transaction.

“My company is always seeking suitable acquisitions,” said Rob Wainer, president of Sunset. “When GAA approached me about Remco, I saw immediately that it was a good fit.”

In addition to full-color printing, Sunset reportedly offers multi-process printing, an area in which Remco specialized. Services in this niche include foil stamping, raised printing, letterpress, intaglio printing, Indigo digital printing, dye sublimation, die cutting, and foil and color edging.

Sunset also provides data and mailing services, collateral and inventory management, all tied together with an online automated ordering system through a proprietary, customer-specific platform, NetEZPrintX, that could be integrated into the customer’s software to also automate the payment and accounting of the order.

“Remco customers will benefit from having access to Sunset’s additional services all in one place. This includes full color printing at competitive rates—something Remco was too small an operation to offer,” said Anthony Skalicky, Jr., owner of Remco.

“Through careful review of GAA’s proprietary database and knowledge of the print-centric market, we identified a short list of potential candidates, including Sunset. We quickly negotiated the M&A deal while also planning and executing the orderly wind-down of Remco’s legacy corporate identity,” said Mark Hahn, senior managing director, GAA.

“The orderly wind down process is expected to be substantially concluded in the Remco case within 60 days after the M&A transaction closed—a remarkably rapid time frame for this kind of procedure,” said John Hyde, managing director of special situations, GAA.

With the acquisition, Skalicky moves to Sunset, where he will head the sales operation, transitioning Remco customers to Sunset and developing new business.
