Yesterday, Print Professional reported that Miami Lakes, Florida-based commercial printer National Litho LLC, a part of holding company National Communications, had filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and was in buyout negotiations with several companies.
Following the article, Print Professional was contacted by Dave Kochba, vice president of business development for National Lithographic Inc., headquartered in Sterling, Va. He said that his company, which is also known as National Litho, had received several phone calls from readers and customers asking about the story.
Kochba explained that his company is in no way affiliated with the South Florida-based printer, and that business at National Lithographic Inc. continues as normal.
"National Lithograph is not only healthy, but thriving," he said. "As a company that has specialized in providing fast, high-quality printing service to the trade for over 30 years, we'd like to thank each of our partners and clients for helping us achieve record-high sales figures over this past year. We remain committed to investing in our craft, staff and technology, and have never been in a better position to take-on our clients' most challenging projects and demanding deadlines."
National Communications, the parent of National Litho LLC, is also operating normally and is not a participant in the chapter 11 filing. Print Professional will have more on the story as details emege.
