Graphic Village Acquires Chicago-Based Sunrise Hitek Group
CINCINNATI June 1, 2022 — Graphic Village announced today that it has purchased Sunrise Hitek Group, LLC, a variable print and specialty large format company in Chicago, IL. This strategic move further strengthens Graphic Village’s capabilities and expands the company’s presence to the Chicago, Illinois region.
Sunrise Hitek is located in the Norwood Park East neighborhood of Chicago since its founding in 1988. As a specialist in high-quality printing, packaging, display fabrication and branded environments, Sunrise Hitek serves a broad array of industries including, healthcare, hospitality, packaged goods and manufacturing. It will continue to operate out of their Chicago-based facility. The current team of 25 employees, including the leadership team, will remain in place and continue to deliver excellent value and customer experiences. Over time, Sunrise Hitek will be rebranded as Graphic Village.
“We’re excited to welcome all members of the Sunrise Hitek team to the Graphic Village family,” said Patrick McMullen, CEO. “Within the last 12 months, Graphic Village has completed acquisitions in Muncie, IN, Louisville, KY and we’re now proud to add Chicago, IL to our ever-growing list. Our rapid growth and geographic expansion is attributed to significant investments in leading-edge technologies, partnering with exceptional clients and, most of all, to the skills and dedication of our expert employees. Sunrise Hitek Group is a great cultural fit for Graphic Village, and I am confident that this transaction will be a complementary opportunity for both parties.”
This key acquisition represents the 19th transaction completed by Revitalize Capital, Graphic Village’s parent company. Eric Kahn, Managing Partner of Revitalize Capital, noted that “Graphic Village continues to grow and strengthen its reputation as the largest independent print marketing provider in the Cincinnati region. We plan to continue our aggressive growth strategy both organically and through attractive acquisition opportunities. By becoming a part of Graphic Village, the Sunrise Hitek team will have a broad array of new products and services to offer not only their clients, but to the broader Chicago market as well.”
