Syracuse Label, Macaran, W.N. Van Alstine Merge

Syracuse Label & Surround Printing, Macaran Printed Products and W.N. Van Alstine, have announced that their respective boards of directors have approved a merger agreement.

The new business will be led by Nick Van Alstine (Macaran/Van Alstine) and Kathy Alaimo (Syracuse) operating as co-CEOs, with Tom Sargent as President.

The merger brings together three label and packaging companies who share common cultures, common cause and common goals. 

The merger will create a new organization with three facilities, 165,000 square feet of manufacturing space, 175 full-time employee owners and $65 million in sales. It also brings together a C-suite leadership team with decades of experienced in the industry. The team consists of:

Kathy Alaimo – Co-CEO

Nick Van Alstine – Co-CEO

Tom Sargent – President

Gary Riley – President, W.N. Van Alstine

Dan Rosenbaum – Chief Financial Officer

Paul Roux – Chief Technical Officer

Thomas Faugno – Chief Sales Officer

Nick Noyes – Chief Operating Officer

A critical aspect of the merger is the continued development and support of the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). The ESOP ownership structure was adopted by Syracuse Label & Surround Printing in 2007 and Macaran/Van Alstine in 2017.

Customers will not see any changes to the day-to-day operations of Syracuse, Macaran or Van Alstine, said the companies. All sales, service and accounting procedures and contacts will remain intact, and all divisions will continue to use their branded visual identities and logos.

In addition, effective December 31, 2022 both Kathy Alaimo and Nick Van Alstine will retire and assume roles as Co-Chairs of the Board of Directors. Tom Sargent will assume the CEO position effective January 1, 2023.
