Sundown Printing Acquires Remco Press

Sunset Printing and Brand Management Solutions, a third generation family company based in Wharton, New Jersey, has acquired the ledger from Remco Press of New Jersey, New Jersey, a small family business. Graphic Arts Advisors, LLC (GAA), Mountain Lakes, NJ, a national M&A advisory and advisory firm dedicated exclusively to all sectors of the graphic communications industry, represented Remco on the transaction.

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

In addition to full-color printing, Sunset also offers multi-process printing, in which Remco has specialized. The services in this niche include foil stamping, letterpress printing, letterpress printing, gravure printing, indigo digital printing, dye sublimation, die-cutting as well as foil and color edging. Sunset also provides data and shipping services, collateral and inventory management, all of which are linked to an automated online ordering system via a proprietary, custom platform, NetEZPrintX, which is built into the customer’s software to also handle payment and billing of the order automate.

“Remco customers benefit from having access to Sunset’s additional services in one place. This includes full color printing at competitive prices – something Remco couldn’t offer, ”said Anthony Skalicky Jr., who ran Remco with his father, Anthony Skalicky Sr.

While virtually all companies are working to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 virus on their business operations, the pandemic has hit the Remco press all too personally. Skalicky Sr. died of the virus this year. The senior Skalicky had operated Remco’s equipment while his son focused on graphic design, sales and customer relationships.

“Remco has been a successful company since my grandfather started it in 1962,” said Skalicky Jr. “When my father died, I knew it was time to make a good decision about the company for me and my customers.” My father had operated the equipment and now our ability to produce and maintain our high quality levels was compromised. My father’s level of experience and skill would have been extremely difficult to replace. I reached out to GAA and, under their guidance, decided that the best step would be selling my ledger to a company that could continue to provide great service to my customers. “

“When Tony reached out to me, I knew that because of Remco’s specialty in highly customized corporate identity collateral, event materials, and similar specialty products, there were few select companies that were well-suited to this particular niche,” said Mark Hahn, Senior Managing Director of GAA. “By carefully examining GAA’s proprietary database and understanding the print market, we identified a short list of potential candidates, including Sunset. We negotiated the M&A deal quickly and at the same time planned and carried out the proper handling of Remco’s old corporate identity. “

“The due process for the Remco case is expected to be substantially completed within 60 days of the closing of the M&A deal – a remarkably quick timeframe for this type of process,” said John Hyde, GAA specialty managing director.

With the acquisition, Skalicky will move to Sunset, where he will head sales, convert Remco customers to Sunset and develop new business areas.
