DUPLI ANNOUNCES THE ACQUISITION OF PCI PAPER CONVERSIONS INC INCLUDING STIK-WITHIT PRINTWORKS; NOTES, INC. AND COATED PRODUCTS DIVISION.

Syracuse, N.Y. – based Dupli, an industry leading on-demand printing company focused on helping companies grow their business utilizing print, is announcing the acquisition of PCI Paper Conversions Inc. also based in Syracuse, NY. Not included in the deal was Advanced Polymers International, PCI’s adhesive manufacturing division.

Founded by John Withers in 1973, PCI is an innovative manufacturer of removable, repositionable print media products including repositionable adhesive coated paper and film (Coated Products Division), a broad range of custom designed removable adhesive products for wholesale (Stik-Withit PrintWorks), and promotional stationery and advertising items (Notes, Inc). Products include Stik-Withit® note pads, Note Cube® brand edge- printed memo pads, desktop calendars, wall graphics, bumper and window stickers, self- adhesive bulletin board and dry erase products.

This acquisition represents the fourth company Dupli has acquired in the last three years with a specific strategy to diversify its products, services and customers. Locally Dupli acquired Lettergraphics in 2013 to add mailing services to its offerings. While best known for envelopes, Dupli’s core services also include on demand marketing collateral, direct mailing services and corporate stationery products. Adding PCI’s products will fit well into Dupli’s focus on printed products that help customers grow their revenues.

“Dupli will greatly increase the market’s exposure to our Stik-Withit® products,” said Lloyd Withers, PCI’s President. “We are very pleased that our employees are staying in Central New York and will be working for such a great company.”

Dupli will hire over 80 PCI employees and relocate its business to PCI’s 138,000 ft. headquarters on Thompson Road. Combining both businesses under one roof, in a first-class, open plan production facility will offer significant opportunities to continue to improve services and grow the combined business. Dupli’s current building in Franklin Square will be developed into high-end corporate office space.

Dupli is based in Syracuse, NY with production facilities outside Philadelphia, PA. and Hartford, CT.

“We are extremely excited to have the PCI family on our team. Adding their products will offer a real advantage to our customer base in their efforts to grow their businesses. The STIK-WITHIT Note Cubes and Note Pads are great gifting products with year long branding reach, and the removable self-adhesive product category allows us to extend into the school, home and office supply markets.” said J. Kemper Matt Jr., President of Dupli.
