Ann Arbor, MI-based Edwards Brothers has partnered with Rockpoint Logistics to provide digital printing services for Rockpoint clients out of Rockpoint's Aurora, IL, facility. Edwards Brothers will be taking over management of the staff and equipment of the existing operation under a multi-year contract, producing a variety of finished goods including perfect-bound books, saddlestitched booklets, laminated covers, and more.
Rockpoint Logistics, formerly known as Kaplan Logistics, is a leading provider of outsourced logistics services to corporations across a variety of industries. The newly formed company was recently acquired by Lion Equity Partners from Kaplan, Inc., a subsidiary of The Washington Post Co.
"This partnership with Edwards Brothers, a proven leader in short-run printing, enhances our offering and allows us to focus on the assembly and distribution of products for our clients," says Mark Pell, CEO, Rockpoint Logistics. "Under the agreement we'll continue to offer print-on-demand and microrun printing and inventory management services to our clients with Edwards Brothers providing the manufacturing expertise."
Rockpoint will be utilizing Edward Brothers' One Touch Reprint web ordering service to place their orders with the digital print center. The service allows easy online ordering and order tracking with automated order confirmation, ship notification, and invoicing.
