Premier Press Grows Services and Capacity with JTW Acquisition

Expanded capacity and capabilities allow customers to rely on us for more services, without needing to manage as many outside vendors. We’ll be able to produce more work, faster, and handle more kinds of projects in-house.

We’re excited to announce that Premier Press and JTW Partners, previously known as Ivey Performance Marketing, are combining forces in an acquisition that capitalizes on the strengths of both companies.

During our 44-plus years in business, our industry has seen transformative changes — and so has Premier Press — as we’ve evolved from a traditional commercial printer into a powerhouse creative production company. We’ve always fostered a culture of continuous improvement, allowing us to adapt and thrive in the face of change and looking for ways to improve the services we provide. Folding in JTW’s expert team and capabilities into our services is the latest step to providing the best creative production anywhere.

Growing Stronger, Together

Like Premier, JTW’s roots go back more than four decades and has a solid reputation for providing exceptional, customer-focused marketing services. There are many synergies in our customer base and services, so together, we see a great opportunity to grow while providing clients of both companies with a broader range of services. All under one roof.

Expanding our Capacity and Capabilities

In addition to new equipment that expands production capacity, JTW brings new design and production capabilities to Premier Press, including:

  • State-of-the-art photography studio
  • Commercial photographers, stylists and production artists with prototyping and post-production retouching expertise
  • Expanded wide format capabilities, including dye sublimation printing for premium printing on fabrics
  • Expanded creative, concepting and project management teams

Our new expertise, expanded capacity, and increased capabilities mean allows Premier Press customers to rely on us for more services, without having to manage as many outside vendors. We’ll be able to produce more work, faster, and handle more kinds of projects in-house.

We will also be bringing many of JTW’s employees on board, including client services representatives and other key resources. The acquisition went into effect as of November 1. We expect to have all employees and operations under one roof at our Portland facility before the end of 2018.
