About the Acquisition
Wallace Carlson, a commercial printing company, announced its acquisition of select assets from Owatonna-based J-C Press in September 2019. The acquisition expanded the company’s services to an even more diverse range of commercial printing capabilities and customer base. Wallace Carlson will continue to serve the J-C Press client base and maintain sales offices in Owatonna.
“We are most excited about what this acquisition will mean for our clients,” commented Patrick McDermott, owner of J-C Press. “J-C Press has always taken an active role in the Owatonna community, providing quality services that have maintained the strong local relationships we have enjoyed for so long.”
Wallace Carlson is owned by Ann and Brian Turbeville and Charlie Cox. Their goal is to continue to develop Wallace Carlson into a long-term leader in the commercial print business sector. They intend to accomplish this through attracting and retaining talented industry professionals and investing in opportunities to diversify and expand offerings. Wallace Carlson has been in business for 88 years and will continue to operate with a long-term strategic vision.
“At Wallace Carlson, our mission has always been to continually invest and expand our capabilities,” said Charlie Cox, COO of Wallace Carlson. “This acquisition is definitely part of that direction.”
