Cathedral Corp. Acquires Axis Data Solutions
Cathedral Corporation, Rome, N.Y., a provider of financial, marketing and fundraising communications for credit unions and banks, colleges and universities, nonprofit organizations and churches, has acquired AXIS Data Solutions, an Orlando, Florida-based company that provides print, mail and electronic presentment of transactional documents and customer-care solutions to credit unions and government clients.
"Cathedral Corporation's sustained success for 98 years reflects our focus on providing the highest quality and exceptional customer service to organizations and companies that also strive to provide the highest level of care to their members and customers," said Marianne Gaige, president and CEO of Cathedral Corporation.
"We recognize that each of our customers is unique, with varying needs and requirements," she continued. "In the growing industries we serve, maximizing value for our customers means offering a wide range of flexible, cost-effective print and electronic communications solutions under one roof."
The two companies have been competitors in industries they both understand, and share the same commitment to nurturing long-term customer relationships."This purchase makes good sense for Cathedral Corporation," noted Gaige. "We expand our geographic reach and consolidate our presence in key financial and government markets. Our customers-and their members and customers-are beneficiaries, too."
David Salazar, president of Axis Data Solutions, agreed. "Our acquisition by Cathedral Corporation is a welcome development in a longtime relationship of mutual respect between our companies," he said. "As part of Cathedral Corporation, AXIS joins an industry leader-fiscally sound, firmly positioned in the markets we serve, and with the leadership and potential to grow."
AXIS will continue to function with a high degree of autonomy. All leadership and staff will remain in their current positions, with Salazar continuing as president and Alicia Culp as chief operating officer. In addition, AXIS leadership will become an active part of Cathedral's senior management team.
Cathedral and AXIS customers can look for continued excellence in production quality and customer service and expanded capabilities in data management, security (SSAE 16 Type II certification) and full-color digital print solutions.
