LG Davis has acquired neighbouring business Positive Print as it looks to expand further into the commercial print sector. Both companies are based in Birmingham, the former in Kings Heath and the latter in Kings Norton, and the purchase is the seventh LG Davis has completed in the past six years.

The purchasing company, which has been based in Birmingham for nearly six decades, supports businesses across the UK with everything from print, design and branded merchandise to personalised workwear, stationery and office furniture. The business completes digital work on a Xerox fleet which incluedes an Iridesse, a Versant 2100 and a Nuvera.

‘LG Davis is committed to delivering first class printing and office solutions across the Midlands and beyond,’ said managing director Liz Smith, who is the daughter of company founder Ron O’Donnell. ‘Our recent growth and series of acquisitions has allowed the company to invest in extra machinery to increase capacity and enhance our inhouse services. We are delighted that we have been able to work with Positive Print to merge our two businesses. I have known Dave and Alison personally for many years and our companies have always shared the same ethos – to put our customer first – so the acquisition is a great opportunity to enhance the offer here in the Midlands.’

Positive Print, the company that has just been taken over, had been run by husband and wife partnership David and Alison Heath for the last eight years. Mrs Heath, who will continue to work alongside LG Davis to support the transition, commented, ‘We are absolutely delighted to now be part of LG Davis. It is a business we have known and admired for many years. We are excited about this new era and confident the move will be beneficial to not only existing Positive Print customers but also enhancing LG Davis too.’
