Dumont Printing buys Fresno printing biz

Dumont Printing has purchased the large press division of Pacific Printing, a Fresno printing operation.

The large press division includes mailing and fulfillment services. Pacific Printing plans to merge its small press division with Premier Color Graphics in Visalia.

Pacific Printing and Premier Color Graphics are both businesses of Pan Pacific Printing Press Inc.

The move leaves 61-year-old Fresno-based Dumont Printing as the major printing company in the Central Valley.

The sale follows a September 2011 decision by Pacific Printing to subcontract manufacturing large press and mailing operations to Dumont Printing.

Dumont Printing has added six Pacific Printing employees: Three account executives, two customer service representatives and a fulfillment specialist. Transition plans call for fulfillment inventory to remain housed in its current warehouse facility.

Dumont Printing offers offset, digital and large format printing. It also provides mailing services, online solutions and bindery and finishing service.
