Felix Schoeller acquires Alameda Company
On October 1, 2018 Felix Schoeller North America acquired all of the assets of the Alameda company in Anaheim, California.
Alameda is a leading converter and distributor of digital printing media, mainly in the Southwestern United States. In the Pre-press proofing market, as well as in the large format imaging industry, the Almeda brand has been established as a recognized standard.
Felix Schoeller North America is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the global Felix Schoeller Group, the world’s largest manufacturer of imaging products for professional, commercial and home printing applications. Headquartered in Pulaski, New York, Felix Schoeller North America has been servicing the analog and digital printing markets as well as the pressure sensitive adhesive industry with papers, films and specialty sub-strates for over 50 years. The operation in Central New York has served as the indus-try-leading converting, fulfillment and distribution hub for North America.
“The acquisition of Alameda is an important milestone in the strategic development of Felix Schoeller in North America. Over the last 15 years, we have been able to consist-ently grow our sales and operations footprint. Adding a new converting and distribution plant on the US West Coast will not only add incremental production capacity, but en-ables us to be a more competitive player across the entire continent”, says Michael Szidat, President of Felix Schoeller North America.
Jim Walsh, Vice President of Sales adds: “The synergies with Alameda are excellent: Their sales channels, product portfolio and production capabilities are a great addition to our already industry-leading performance package for the digital printing space.”
“Alameda - A Felix Schoeller Company” will continue to offer their existing portfolio of imaging products and brands. In the coming months however, these will be comple-mented by the full portfolio of Felix Schoeller - made products. The result will be the most comprehensive portfolio of digital printing solutions manufactured at two of the most advanced Converting & Distribution sites in the Industry.
