Respected Statements Technology Platform Will Expand Harland Clarke’s Current Transactional Document Offerings
Harland Clarke Corp. has announced that on May 31, 2013, it acquired NCP Solutions. The acquisition was driven by NCP’s recognized technology platform for the creation and fulfillment of physical print and digital statements and other critical transactional documents. This is an expansion of Harland Clarke’s capabilities as a world-class supplier of secure documents and data-driven communication vehicles to help customers grow their businesses.
NCP was founded in 1974 and grew to become the nation’s largest payment coupon book provider to the financial services industry. Building on that foundation, the company began its strategic expansion in the late 1980s, adding capabilities to produce additional time-sensitive transactional print documents, marketing communications, mail services, and digital web services.
“The solutions our two companies provide to customers are highly complementary,” said Dan Singleton, CEO of Harland Clarke and COO of Harland Clarke Holdings Corp. “NCP is recognized as an expert in delivering high-value transactional documents, including statements, compliance documents and communications. These are highly secure materials needed by financial institutions – which form the core of Harland Clarke’s business. We see definite opportunities for growth as we continue our mission of helping our clients attract, retain and expand their customer bases.”
Recognized as the largest provider of checks and related payments products to financial institutions, Harland Clarke also offers strategic solutions in its marketing services and retail channels lines of business. Digital communication offerings are provided through its HC Digital business unit. NCP Solutions will be a fourth line of business within Harland Clarke that will be focused on growing transactional print and digital solutions. These offerings will significantly expand Harland Clarke’s capabilities in this area, providing additional products to support the growth of its clients.
“Becoming part of Harland Clarke is a milestone for NCP Solutions,” noted Steve Greenwalt, CEO of NCP Solutions. “I am very proud that such a respected and successful business values what our NCP team has worked nearly four decades to create and refine. I’m also excited about the opportunities that joining forces affords both Harland Clarke and NCP Solutions.” NCP’s current management team will continue leading the business with Mr. Greenwalt reporting directly to Harland Clarke CEO Dan Singleton.
Harland Clarke’s Sales organization will be presenting the full complement of NCP’s transactional document capabilities to Harland Clarke’s more than 8,000 financial institution clients. In addition, NCP’s 4,000 clients will have the benefit of Harland Clarke’s full portfolio of solutions.
“This is a dynamic and extremely positive direction for NCP and Harland Clarke,” added Singleton. “But the ultimate winners will be our clients. I am excited about being able to offer them more support for even greater success.”
