Ron Lafalce, President of Maple Direct, Inc., announced that his company would be expanding its operations through a merger with Edmunds Direct Mail, Inc., which is located in Northfield, New Jersey. The merger brings together two companies that have excelled in the fields of direct response, database management and processing, printing and fulfillment for more than three decades.
“Merging with Edmunds will serve to further strengthen Maple Direct in terms of the capabilities and customer service we can provide to our clients and the marketplace,” said Lafalce, who joined Maple Direct as Vice President of Operations in March of 1984, a position he held until becoming the company’s President in March of 2014. “This is just another step in helping Maple Direct provide high quality direct-mail printing and distribution services to our direct marketing clients.”
Maple Direct has been in business for 30 years. It is headquartered in a 34,000-square-foot facility in Pennsauken, NJ, which houses state-of-the-art equipment supported by a team of nearly 75 full-time employees. Maple Direct also owns a 5,000-square-foot facility in Phoenix, Arizona, and on May 1, 2015, will be opening a new facility in Hollywood, Florida.
Over the past several years, Maple Direct has developed significant expertise in supporting personalized and targeted promotion campaigns for enterprises in the casino and hospitality industries. In addition to printing and lettershop services, laser and inkjet imaging and bulk mail preparation, Maple Direct provides effective database management and response tracking.
“As a result of our gaming industry experience, and their requirements in terms of quality control, accountability, data security, responsiveness and deadlines, we are able to handle projects of any scope while consistently exceeding our clients’ expectations,” said Lafalce.
Since 1975 Edmunds Direct Mail, Inc. has offered tailor made mailing solutions for local and national clients from all facets of the business world. Edmunds provides printing, full mail house and fulfillment services to clients of all sizes and needs.
‘We are pleased and excited to be joining the Maple Direct family of companies,” said Kathy Biglin, CEO/President of Edmunds Direct Mail, Inc. “This merger brings together two of the strongest names in the direct mail industry. By joining together we will greatly enhance our overall capabilities, which will benefit all of our customers and employees.”
