Ennis, Inc., based in Midlothian, Texas, has acquired the assets and business of AmeriPrint Corporation in Harvard, Illinois. AmeriPrint Corporation is a trade printer specializing in custom-printed documents, barcoding, integrated products and business forms. Ennis is the parent company of industry suppliers Folder Express (PPAI 354129, S1), Independent Folders (PPAI 111993, S2) and Admore, Inc. (PPAI 111144, S10).

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to bring AmeriPrint, their employees and their customers into the Ennis family,” says Keith Walters, chairman, president and CEO. “AmeriPrint is a strategically located company in the Chicago area with 30 years of print industry experience and we will continue to operate the company in its same location. They pride themselves on exceptional customer service as does Ennis. This brand brings added capabilities and expertise to our expanding product offering including barcoding and variable imaging and will add depth to the products and services we already have at Integrated Print Group in South Elgin, Illinois.”

AmeriPrint operations will continue to operate under its own name and company facilities will continue their normal operations in their current location. Although Vicky Schulty, president, and Jim Schulty, EVP, are retiring after the sale, the remainder of current employees will continue to work at the two facilities in Harvard.
