Weinberg Capital sells New Channel Direct to Angstrom Graphics

Angstrom Graphics has acquired Cleveland-based New Channel Direct, a direct mail service company. The seller was Weinberg Capital Group. No financial terms were disclosed.


CLEVELAND, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — New Channel Direct (“New Channel” or the “Company”), a Cleveland, Ohio based direct mail service firm, announced today that it has been sold to Angstrom Graphics, a Cleveland based family operated company that offers a wide array of print, fulfillment, omni-channel and marketing solutions. Founded in 1952, New Channel had been owned by Weinberg Capital Group (“WCG”), originally as part of the Sun Media Group, which also owned Sun Newspapers. Sun Newspapers was sold to Newhouse Publications in 1998 and WCG continued to operate New Channel as a standalone business since that time.

The transaction represents an expansion of Angstrom Graphics’ offerings in direct mail and multi-channel marketing solutions, which will include design, list generation, data processing, final mailing, data storage and customized reporting.

Carol Swearingen will remain President & CEO of New Channel, now a division of Angstrom Graphics. Said Swearingen, “in recent years we have grown from serving a local customer base to providing services to clients across the US. With the support of Angstrom Graphics’ broad range of services, particularly printing, we will enhance our customer offerings even more.”
