BRYAN, OH | Anderson & Vreeland reports the acquisition of The Provident Group, Concord, NH, a leading manufacturer and distributor of doctor blades, end seals, and innovative solutions for the flexographic printing industry.
“Provident Group’s technical expertise and patented innovation in the doctor blade and end seal field allows us to better serve customers throughout North America in one bold move,” says Howard Vreeland Jr., chairman of the board for Anderson & Vreeland. “Our customers will benefit from an expanded manufacturing footprint, talent pool, and knowledge base.”
The Provident Group was founded by industry veterans Mark Van Denend and David Allen in 1996 and specialized in developing innovative solutions for package and label printers. The company owns numerous patents that improve doctor blade and end seal performance, including Chamber Wrap, an innovation said to protect the doctor blade chamber from ink buildup, reducing cleanup time and solvent usage.
“Anderson & Vreeland’s acquisition of The Provident Group represents a win/win for both our organizations, and more importantly for our customers,” says David Allen. “We will continue to develop new and improved solutions for label and package printers backed by the finest technical support.”
The Provident Group will operate independently as a wholly owned subsidiary of Anderson & Vreeland. The company has 16 employees and a manufacturing and sales/warehouse facility in Englewood, CO. David Allen will remain with the company in charge of sales and Mark Van Denend will serve in a consulting capacity and continue to develop innovations for the pressroom.
