David Ingram Semi Retires After Helping With Transition Following Sale Of His Modern Way Printing To College Press

Tuesday, November 20, 2018

David Ingram, longtime owner of Modern Way Printing at Ooltewah, has now semi-retired after helping with a transition after his firm was sold to College Press at Collegedale.

Rob Howell, co-owner of College Press with Brad Fisher, said Mr. Ingram will still work on special projects. He worked for three decades in the printing business.

College Press is remaining at its current site after the acquisition.

College Press is a commercial printing company and has been in Collegedale for just over 101 years. In addition to all forms of printing services, College Press has related offerings for mailing, fulfillment, promotional items and apparel.

Mr. Howell said, "In December of 2017 College Press purchased Modern Way Printing of Ooltewah, and moved their operation into the College Press building in Collegedale. The acquisition fit well into the College Press operations due to Modern Way’s emphasis on digital printing.

"College Press has a long history of offset printing, and the addition of the Modern Way equipment and experienced personnel meant that there was minimal overlap in the two companies. With customers all over the Chattanooga valley to states as far away as Washington, the impact from the change has benefited College Press and Modern Way customers alike.

"Both offset and digital printing customers benefit from having these operations under one roof and from one provider. Speed, efficiency, and cost reductions are some of the benefits."

College Press has 28 full-time employees and five part-time.
