Toledo Ticket Expands Operations

The Toledo Ticket Company is proud to announce a significant facility expansion for its growing portfolio of product and service offerings. The new 12,000-square-foot development will be used for warehousing, as well as additional manufacturing space, to keep up with the increased demand for the company’s expanding array of products. In addition, the new construction will become home to its newly acquired partner company, Universal Bindery, Inc.

Universal Bindery has been a Toledo mainstay since 1949, partnering with area printers to offer custom bindery solutions. From traditional saddle stitching to complex book binding, collating, fugitive gluing, automatic pocket folder assembly, full cutting and trimming capabilities such as die-cutting and kiss cutting, folding, laminating, stringing, hand assembly, and unique custom projects, Universal is focused on helping clients deliver a better finished product.

“The coming together of these two companies is a natural fit,” commented Tom Carter, President and COO for Toledo Ticket.
