Brands Unite to Strengthen Regional Commitment

Salem One Inc., one of the largest print-based corporate communication companies in the Southeast, has announced the acquisition of Postmark Inc., a full-service direct marketing company also based in Winston-Salem.

Salem One and Postmark have been trusted business partners and friendly competitors for years, with similar innovative, client-focused corporate cultures that make the combination a natural fit.

“We are two strong, successful companies, that together harness the consumer response power of print and packaging application technology, data and analytic knowledge sets and national level supply chain logistics and delivery expertise,” said Phil Kelley, Jr., President and CEO of Salem One. “We are pleased to strengthen our regional commitment with the addition of the dominant local Postmark brand as we continue to grow our presence nationally in the broad segments of Direct Marketing, Packaging, Print and Logistic solutions for brand dominant, consumer-focused organizations.”

This acquisition, along with positive organic growth, expands Salem One’s position as the largest independently owned print-based corporate communication company headquartered in North and South Carolina.

“Postmark will operate as a division of Salem One as we ensure seamless integration for clients,” said Postmark President Jon Bowman, “We do not anticipate any changes in personnel, and know our clients will quickly enjoy the tremendous major advantages we will bring to their direct marketing needs through this corporate combination.”

Dick Vann, who founded Postmark 27 years ago, said, “I am thrilled to see the decades of attention to meeting client needs and strong reputation for innovation, that has been associated with Postmark from our founding, to be integrated into such a strong regional, national, and client-focused organization such as Salem One.  I am also thrilled for the hard-working people of Postmark, whose skill sets have been so important to helping clients prosper, and that remain so critical to Salem One’s ongoing success.”

Salem One, Inc. has been recognized nationally by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America and listed in the Fast 50 by the Triad Business Journal.  In addition, Salem One is consistently one of the most recognized recipients of quality awards from the Printing Industry of the Carolinas, and is an acknowledged Innovation Partner with the  U.S. Postal Service (USPS).
