Well, I hesitate to call this "breaking news" because this news was published in the on-line publication, NYinc, last week. Today, one of my industry colleagues brought this deal to my attention, so I thought it would be appropriate to bring this deal to the attention of my blog-site visitors.

Joel's comment: while the article does not state or even mention this, it 'sounds to me like' NRI is or may be entering the reprographics market in Atlanta. NRI currently conducts reprographics operations in NY, NJ, MA, PA, Washington, DC and San Francisco. NRI is one of the largest reprographics operations in the reprographics industry. Doug Magid, CEO of NRI, is a graduate of the Wharton School of Finance (Univ of Penn) and a very, very sharp cookie. Doug benefitted from having his dad, Sol Magid, as his primary mentor. Congratulations to NRI on its newly announced deal with AEC Technology Consultants.
