Cincinnati Precision Plate and E.C. Shaw Company are pleased to announce the merger of their companies. Each company has a long history of great service in the flexographic and pre-press industry, with Cincinnati Precision Plate being established in 1978 and E.C. Shaw Company in 1908. With this merger, current and future clients will have more options available in pre-press, plating and products. All will enjoy the same great service in operations and customer care.

The companies now offer advanced proofing, brand management, inkjet contract proofs, 3D PDF’s and an online approval system. Plating options include a more diverse array of flat plate materials, Esko HD Flexo, Plate on Sleeve (POS) and In-the Round Plating Technology (ITR). Additional product lines include 3M Flexographic Tapes and Rotec sleeves.

Bill Painer, President of CPP, said, “The merging of the two companies has great synergies where both companies can benefit from shared technologies and expertise in graphic arts and pre-press business.”

Joe Grome, President of ECS, added, “Our combined workforce, technical expertise and variety of pre-press and flexographic options offer our customers a great value.” Having served the industry for a combined service of 136 years, Your Pre-Press Destinations will continue to be A Hallmark of Innovation and Excellence for years to come.

Please rest assured as our forces join we would like to make the transition as smooth as possible. The
same personnel who currently service and work on your projects will remain as they have in the past.

As our current contact information changes occur, we will inform you along the way — phone numbers, e-mail, shipping address etc. As of January 2012, Cincinnati Precision Plate has relocated into the current
E.C. Shaw facility.

We would like to thank you for your past and present confidence in our companies and look forward to serving you in the future as our forces join.
