we wanted to find a good partner for our customers. We
did not want to just close or let just anyone take over
accounts we have worked with for decades. I have
worked with John and Kathy for many years and know
they will be the right people to continue the work we have
done with our clients, as we share the same values and
commitments to our customers. Mitchell’s technology and
manufacturing expertise will ensure our customers are in
great hands and get to the next level.”

service. We are lucky and honored that Barbara would
choose us to entrust her business and her clients to. We
promise to serve them well”. Kathy also described the
acquisition Mitchell’s made of Speedway Press 10 years
ago, “The purchase of Speedway Press was a learning
curve for us, and I think that we did very well, with
excellent client retention and a seamless transition. I
know the customers and clients of Phoenix Press will find
the same with this transition as well, because there are
people at the head of our organization who truly care
about the client first and foremost. John and I personally
meet and handle the needs of our clients, and the
customers of Phoenix Press can look forward to the same.”
