VIRGINIA BEACH, VA, April 15, 2022 – Fortis Solutions Group LLC, a leading provider of high impact printed packaging solutions and a portfolio company of Harvest Partners, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Anchor Printing based in Novi, Michigan.

Fortis President and CEO John O. Wynne, Jr. commented, “I have tremendous respect and admiration for the Weitz family and the nationally recognized business they have created, owned and operated for three generations. We are looking forward to working closely with the Anchor team and Andrew Weitz, who takes on a senior leadership position with Fortis as our President, Shrink and Flexible Packaging. We are very appreciative they have chosen Fortis to help continue their future growth, and bolster our core capabilities and talent across key product lines.”
Anchor owner Andrew Weitz commented, “After 75 years of building Anchor Printing Company, we wanted to continue to grow our trajectory, while servicing our customers even better. When meeting with John and the Fortis team, we knew the synergies between the two companies could create something exceptional for years to come and expand the business to even greater heights. Our culture at Anchor was built on the commitment to quality, service, and hard work that was started by my grandfather and passed on to my father and myself, which I will carry on within the Fortis Family.”
