CHICAGO, Nov. 22, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- R. R. Donnelley & Sons Company (Nasdaq:RRD) today announced that it has acquired West Chester, OH based StratusGroup, Inc., a full service manufacturer of custom pressure sensitive label and paperboard packaging products for health and beauty, food, beverage and other segments.

"With the exponential growth in media choices available to consumers, point-of-purchase packaging plays an increasingly important role in our customers' marketing mixes," said John Paloian, RR Donnelley's Chief Operating Officer. "StratusGroup's superb decorative labeling and paperboard resources offer an excellent complement to our prime label, corrugated and other global packaging capabilities.

We anticipate being able to immediately expand StratusGroup's utilization and to offer its customers even more extensive integrated solutions."

StratusGroup's (www.stratusgrp.com) pressure sensitive capabilities include digital, paper, film, multi-ply, expanded content and a range of other solutions. It serves customers with custom paperboard products for folding carton, insert, multi-pack, tray and other applications. It also provides comprehensive structural design and prototyping services.

"Over the course of nearly two decades, StratusGroup has been serving customers with innovative capabilities and exceptional quality," said Robert Curran, President of StratusGroup. "As a part of RR Donnelley, we will offer our customers an even broader range of resources and draw on its world class fulfillment and logistics capabilities to deliver even more complete solutions." 

RR Donnelley's growing international packaging services include packaging design, print production, finishing, assembly, pack-out and other capabilities. The company provides packaging and labeling solutions to medical products, electronics, food and beverage, consumer packaged goods, industrial products, and a wide range of other customers.
