The new owner of Dellas Graphics has eliminated 20 of 31 jobs at the Syracuse, New York-based printing company and moved much of its operations to Rochester, N.Y.

Dellas Graphics employed 31 people at its printing plant at 835 Canal St. in Syracuse when the firm was acquired by Rochester-based Canfield & Tack Commercial Printing and Fulfillment on Nov. 12. Since then, about 16 employees have been laid off and four other jobs have been eliminated through attrition, said Canfield Chairman Ray Brown.

Canfield & Tack will keep about 11 employees in Syracuse as part of a reduced operation here, Brown said.
