Canfield & Tack to acquire Syracuse printing firm

Rochester Business Journal
November 13, 2012

Canfield & Tack Inc. is expanding.

The Rochester-based commercial printing company said Tuesday it is acquiring Dellas Graphics Inc., a printing company out of Syracuse. Dellas is to become a division of Canfield & Tack.

Canfield & Tack’s annual revenues exceed $14 million, officials said. The acquisition of Dellas brings in additional revenues of nearly $6 million, and adds some 25 employees to Canfield & Tack’s existing staff of 75.

Thomas Dellas, president of Dellas Graphics, will join Canfield & Tack’s management team as regional director of business development and acquisitions for Central New York, officials said.

Dellas Graphics provides offset and digital printing, mailing and fulfillment services. Dellas purchased the company, then Nat Geddis & Associates, in 1979, building it from seven employees and growing sales from $150,000.
 
“This is a great fit for both companies — from a capabilities standpoint and from a cultural perspective,” said Ray Brown, chairman of Canfield & Tack, in a statement. “Dellas Graphics is a strong company, with steady sales, loyal customers, and a compatible market approach. It also has a longstanding reputation for delivering outstanding personal customer service.”
 
Canfield & Tack was founded in 1926 and is one of the region’s oldest continually operating printing companies. It has sales offices in New York City and Washington, D.C. The company ranked No. 6 on the Rochester Business Journal’s most recent list of commercial printers.
