This gives LSC the natural synergies and scale to improve service and add more value to our current client base, as well as extends our reach deeper into a variety of other industries.”
Dan Knotts, RRD’s President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “The sale of our Print Logistics business represents a significant step forward in our strategic transformation as a marketing and business communications company. This transaction allows us to focus on executing our core strategy of helping our clients more effectively manage the complexities of personalized marketing and sustain meaningful connections with their customers across the full customer journey.”
