BR’s Emprint expanding into Lafayette, Monroe

Emprint/Moran Printing, of Baton Rouge, plans to acquire substantially all the assets of TriStar Graphics’ Lafayette and Monroe operations.

Emprint operates a large commercial and digital printing facility and a warehousing and distribution center off Florida Boulevard and has a facilities-management production facility in Savannah, Ga.

“TSG has an excellent reputation and its staff and operations are a great fit with Emprint, and we are delighted to have this opportunity for expansion of Emprint operations into the Lafayette and Monroe markets,” Emprint President Rebecca Vance said Monday.

Emprint/Moran Printing has been in business for more than 134 years and was founded by Thomas J. Moran.

Emprint, which has a document solutions division, combines print and document-related services into custom contracts with large, corporate print buyers. It has local and national clients, including some state contracts.

TriStar Graphics, based in Monroe, provides digital and offset printing and direct mail services.

Patrick O’Neal, president of TSG, said “the combination of Emprint and TSG operations will provide excellent opportunities for the TSG personnel and continuation of the high level of services that our customers have come to expect.”
