Moore Acquires Communications Corporation of America

Communications Corporation of America, a direct mail printing, data processing, personalization, finishing and mail processing firm with operations in Elkwood, Virginia, and Boston, has been acquired by direct response firm Moore.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Moore adds CCA to add to its printing, production and envelope manufacturing capacity in the mid-Atlantic region. Moore this past December acquired Tri-State Envelope, which specializes in custom envelope manufacturing. Others in the mix are Barton Cotton Graphics, Navistar, Richmond Print Group, and United Presort.

“As CCA celebrates our 51st anniversary and five years of successfully rebuilding after our catastrophic fire, we are ready to move forward. We see becoming a Moore company as a synergistic step that is the best fit for our clients and our CCA team,” said Linda Fisher, president of CCA and Direct Marketing Association of Washington Hall of Leaders member.

The fire reference is to a 2017 multi-alarm blaze at its Boston facility. The Rappahannock News reported at the time that more than 200 firefighters from nearly three-dozen responding fire departments, including every volunteer company in Rappahannock, battled the fire.

According to Gretchen Littlefield, chief executive officer of Moore, “This acquisition comes on the heels of other investments we are making, including moving United Presort, a Moore company, to a new 82,000 square feet facility in Frederick, Maryland to accommodate their client growth. We are now capable of processing over 2 billion pieces of mail from this facility.” Moore now has more than 4,100 employees in 42 locations.
