Omaha, Neb.

Hewlett-Packard this month laid off about 100 employees in Omaha, Neb., as part of a corporate restructuring plan announced in May 2012. The workers were notified Nov. 4 and the layoffs were effective immediately.

The workers were part of the firm's Personal and Printing Systems division. The company declined to say what the workers' roles were and would not say how many people HP employs in Omaha. HP said its sole Nebraska location is at 10810 Farnam Drive, in the Old Mill area.

The employees are receiving severance pay.

Ennis Inc., Midlothian, Texas, today announced that it has executed a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of Folder Express (www.folderexpress.com) from Wright Printing Company of Omaha, Neb. The closing, which is expected to be on or before Sept. 30, 2013, is subject to the completion of normal pre-closing items. Folder Express will continue to operate at its current location in Omaha, Neb.

The way Lynn M. Rogge sees it, operating on price alone is the worst blunder a distributor can make. And with 50 years in the game, it's a safe bet that he knows a thing or two.

Got a folder job coming up and you're not sure which supplier to use? Is your current provider not performing as well as you'd like and you're thinking maybe it's time to make a change? 

From Aug. 10 through Aug. 16, the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) awarded 116 one-time print jobs to 42 print supplier clients of Government Print Management.
