Alden and Ott Opens North Carolina Plant


Alden and Ott Printing Inks L.P., Arlington Heights, IL, has opened its newest facility, located in Gastonia, NC. The new plant will manufacture and distribute all of the company’s offset and flexo printing ink product lines.
In addition, the new location will market printing blankets and supplies through its sister company, Premier Blanket Service.
“Our goal is to open up additional facilities to improve our logistics, and this is the second step,” said Tom Alden, president of Alden and Ott. “It was perfect timing. We should be up and running by June.”
Mike Cushing, a longtime veteran of the flexo industry, most recently with American Water Graphics, will head up sales in North and South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia and Florida. Also, Dan Corum, formerly with American Water Graphics, has joined the sales team, and will head up sales in Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska and Tennessee.
