Hackworth Acquires Copico
Effective January 1, 2019, we are excited to announce that Hackworth Graphics & Printing will take over the Copico operation in Suffolk. Hackworth is a 27-year-old, family and locally owned business based in Chesapeake. Hackworth provides printing, design, graphics, signage and marketing services to companies throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
Copico customers will not see any drastic or immediate changes to Copico’s production operations. Darren Schultz, former owner of Copico, will remain on staff to help with the transition. Jessica Turner, a former employee, has been hired back to handle customer service and client production needs. The current location and phone number, 757-934-2113, will remain the same. Over the next few days and weeks, clients will see a migration to the Hackworth website, billing system, email addresses and file transfer programs. Our goal is to make this a seamless transition for everyone involved.
This acquisition allows Hackworth to expand direct services into the fast growing markets of Western Tidewater such as Suffolk, Smithfield, Windsor, Isle of Wight and Franklin. In house capabilities include industrial screen printing, direct print to rigid substrate (wood, aluminum, plastic, acrylic and coroplast), fleet graphics, vehicle wraps, magnets, banners, window graphics and more.
Hackworth was voted the Hampton Roads Chamber Small Business of the Year in 2017 for the City of Chesapeake and has been recognized nationally as a Top 50 Print Shop by Wide-Format Magazine for 5 years running.
