The owners of Duquesne Litho Inc. (Bridgeville, PA) have joined Heeter Direct of Canonsburg, PA. Duquesne Litho ceased manufacturing operations April 9, 2010. Owners Jim, Steve and Greg Condio have become part of Heeter Direct effective immediately. Specific terms were not disclosed. NAPL provides ongoing advice to Heeter on its mergers and acquisitions growth strategy.
“We are very pleased to have joined Heeter Direct,” says former Duquesne Litho president Jim Condio. “Heeter Direct has long enjoyed an excellent reputation for the quality of its work and its superior service. This new relationship allows us to provide a wider range of services and capabilities to meet our customers’ expanding graphic communications needs.”
Heeter Direct president Scott Heeter says, “We are excited to have Jim, Steve and Greg come on board with our team, and appreciate that they think highly enough of us to trust that their customer relationships will be maintained and enhanced.”
Both companies have built excellent reputations serving the greater Pittsburgh area for many years. Heeter Direct has more than 60 years experience in commercial sheetfed printing and has become a leader in digital print-on-demand, variable data, mailing, kitting, and fulfillment services. Duquesne Litho served Pittsburgh businesses and other organizations since 1946, providing commercial printing, finishing, mailing, and warehousing services.
“I am more convinced than ever that when the right companies combine their strengths, there are many benefits,” says Heeter. The transaction with Duquesne Litho’s former owners comes less than a year after Heeter Direct successfully integrated First Impression Printing of Pittsburgh, PA, which merged into Heeter Direct in June 2009.
“Heeter Direct is a great example of a leading company that is positioning itself for future success and growth” says John Hyde, NAPL senior vice president, noting that the company has been a member of NAPL for more than 20 years.
