hubergroup USA acquisition

hubergroup USA Inc has acquired substantially all of the assets of Alden & Ott in a private deal. hubergroup expects to retain virtually all employees and management team in order to continue operations in the Midwest and Northeast without interruption. “The addition of Alden & Ott to the hubergroup family is an exciting opportunity for our customers, employees and shareholders,” said Derek McFarland, President of hubergroup USA. “As a key raw material supplier, we already had a great relationship with the Alden & Ott team and had discovered how much we share a commitment to providing our print customers with products and service that help them delight their customers. Specifically, our combined capabilities in conventional, water-based, low-migration and energy-cured inks will create an enviable offering to the growing packaging market.”

Alden & Ott Printing Inks Co was founded by Joe Alden and Henry Ott in 1957 and has transformed itself many times. Anticipating customer needs, the company expanded its products from heat set to sheet fed, UV inks, and flexo inks. Today, Alden & Ott is a comprehensive ink manufacturer developing custom solutions for both the offset and flexo printing markets in the Midwest and Northeast.
