“I couldn’t be more excited to have our team at Tip Top Bindery welcoming B.C.W. Bindery Services to our organization. This step will help to increase scale and capability of the combined organizations’ services,” said Arthur Winiarczyk, Vice President of AdMill Group. “We view this acquisition as a strategic next step continuing to propel Tip Top Bindery as the premier solutions provider in bindery services that will deliver significant value to current and future customers.”

B.C.W. Bindery Services’ co-owners Blair Wilson and Irv Brown added that they’re delighted to join the Tip Top Management Team. “Our customers, suppliers – and especially our employees – have helped build our reputation in the bindery industry,” said Wilson. “Known for our quality, the share purchase of B.C.W. by Tip Top enables us to expand services to our customers to include mailing and die cutting.” Pointing out that there is minimal customer crossover between the two companies, Brown added: “The purchase is a good fit.” All employees of B.C.W. have been offered positions with Tip Top, a significant consideration for Wilson and Brown when negotiating the sale of their business, they said.
