GLS / NEXT Precision Marketing Acquires Sexton Printing

GLS / NEXT Precision Marketing, a strategic marketing and print solutions provider, announces the acquisition of St. Paul-based printing company, Sexton Printing. The addition of Sexton’s customers will complement GLS / NEXT’s business portfolio, allow us to continue the exceptional service and quality that they have enjoyed with Sexton, and provide them with many benefits through an enhanced collection of services.


“We are delighted that Sexton’s legacy will continue through GLS / NEXT, it’s a fantastic organization,” said Tim Sexton, President/CEO at Sexton Printing. “They offer a tremendous array of capabilities, from print and marketing technologies to creative services. Our current customers will be in good hands.”


Sexton Printing was founded in 1949 and was recently owned by five third-generation siblings, who were all at or near retirement. Considering an absence of a fourth generation for business succession, the ownership team decided to search for a local company which met Sexton’s high standards in ethics, employee culture, customer service, and financial stability to perpetuate the business. This was the best option for employees, customers, and ownership alike.


“Throughout our discussions, I was impressed by their leadership and operations,” said Sexton. “They continued to instill confidence and demonstrated concern for Sexton’s interests.”


“We are looking forward to the future and believe the transition will be seamless,” said Jayme Wisely, CEO and President at GLS / NEXT Precision Marketing. “Both companies share the same core values and superior customer service that will lead to success.”
