Graphic Village Invests in New Packaging Division with CTS Packaging Acquisition
Greater Cincinnati’s largest independent print marketing company will soon be even larger. Covington, Ky.-based CTS Packaging, a full-line folding carton manufacturer, will join the Graphic Village family of companies, effective Oct. 1.
The 60-year-old company provides custom and stock packaging services to a wide range of customers. It will move to Graphic Village’s new “print marketing shop of the future” this fall.
“CTS and GV have been strategic partners for five years,” said Eric Kahn, CEO of Graphic Village. “This is the next logical step in our relationship. By being together under one roof, we will be able to meet all of our clients’ packaging and other print marketing needs more effectively than ever.
“We are thrilled that Mark O’Bryan, president of CTS for the past eight years, will be staying on as a partner with Graphic Village and president of our new packaging division.”
“Graphic Village offers cutting-edge printing and embellishment technologies, capabilities, convenience and efficiencies not found anywhere else in Greater Cincinnati,” said O’Bryan.
“We are excited to be able to offer these to our valued packaging customers. They can also look forward to faster and more responsive customer service, faster turnaround times, greater cost-effectiveness and even higher-quality packaging services.”
Graphic Village has experienced tremendous growth in recent years, both organically and through strategic acquisitions, allowing it to deepen its relationships with existing clients and expand its portfolio of services. When the acquisition of CTS is complete, it will have some 250 employees, including approximately 30 from CTS.
“Our acquisition of CTS moves us closer to our goal of serving all of our clients’ print marketing needs conveniently, efficiently and cost-effectively,” said Larry Kuhlman, president of Graphic Village.
Stay tuned for news about Graphic Village’s new “print marketing shop of the future.” The company’s new home, which is currently under construction, will be a “one-stop village” for everything an organization could possibly need to outshine its competition and grow its business. It will be located at 4440 Creek Road in Blue Ash.
