Top 40 supplier Ennis Inc. (asi/52493) has acquired print company Hoosier Data Forms. Financial terms of the deal were not released, but as part of the transaction, John Cornelius, previous owner of Hoosier, will remain with the company in a sales and management capacity. “We are pleased to add John Cornelius, Hoosier Data Forms and their loyal customers to the Ennis family,” said Keith Walters, chairman, president and CEO of Ennis. “Hoosier Data Forms has been serving the region for almost 40 years and the Cornelius family’s printing roots go back more than 100 years serving distributors.”
Ennis said it will now consolidate Hoosier and its Printegra Indianapolis operation into one facility. The transition to the single facility will take place over the next six months, but following the consolidation, both companies and their employees will continue to operate under their respective brand names.
