Allegra Acquires 150-Year-Old Goslen Printing

One of the country’s oldest printing companies has merged with one of the Triad’s most technologically sophisticated marketing, mailing, and printing companies after 150 years as a family-owned business. Goslen Printing, headquartered in Winston-Salem, NC, and Allegra Marketing Print Mail, Winston-Salem, have come together to serve nearly 1,000 businesses.

The Allegra operation in Winston-Salem is part of a franchise network founded in 1976. Perry Clark, president, Allegra, and his wife, Kelli Clark, acquired their franchise in 2007 after years of working in the printing, display and packaging businesses.

“Starting Allegra allowed me to come back to Winston-Salem after years of being on the road in the printing and promotions businesses and living in New Jersey,” said Perry. “We learned that the strongest growth opportunity in our industry comes from acquisition of new talent, technologies and resources. Goslen will be our fifth strategic acquisition. We are much stronger together.”
