On October 1, 2020, Mainline Printing of Topeka, KS announced the purchase of the print assets of Go Modern. Go Modern, also located In Topeka, KS, is owned by Advisors Excel, and currently provides printing, marketing, and promotional product services to customers across the US.
The integration is expected to take 3-6 months and will include moving 17 Go Modern employees to Mainline Printing’s facilities, bringing Mainline’s total staff to 90. The rest of Go Modern’s staff will remain with its promotional products division.
“Printing is not our core strength; rather, our skillset aligns with marketing and promotional products,” said Advisors Excel Co-Founder Cody Foster. “With Mainline’s size, capacity, and experience, they are the perfect choice to take over the printing side of Go Modern.”
The purchase, which will add four digital presses to Mainline’s existing two Konica Minolta digital presses, will expand the company’s existing digital, variable data, mailing, and wide-format offerings.
“The addition of Go Modern’s print assets is a fantastic strategic opportunity for both companies,” explains John Parker, Jr., COO of Mainline Printing. “Mainline’s customers will be able to take advantage of our expanded digital capacity as well as mailing, variable data, and wide-format printing while Go Modern’s customers will now have direct access to Mainline’s best-in-class offset printing capabilities and capacity.”
