Omaha Print has acquired the customer base of Holm Graphic Services Inc. of Des Moines, which will cease its printing production.
"We expect we will see opportunities for growth in Omaha in production and employment" because of the expansion into the Des Moines market, said Chuck Kinzer, president of Omaha Print. He said it's too soon to say how many employees would be added.
Holm's owner, Mary Ann Amundson, will join Omaha Print as Iowa regional director for sales and business development. Her Des Moines office will handle sales and some other duties, but production will be done at the Omaha facilities, Kinzer said Thursday. He said the number of people who will work in Des Moines is still being determined, and he could not disclose terms of the transaction.
In a press release, Amundson said, "I'm very excited about the opportunity to work with Omaha Print. They have a long-standing reputation as an innovative and industry leading company."
