Following a recent acquisition, company executives said no job cuts are anticipated at Strine Printing.

The Manchester-based printing business was acquired March 31 by Menasha Packaging, a Wisconsin-based company with more than 3,600 employees and 40 locations nationwide.

The 325 employees at Strine Printing will keep their jobs, said Dennis Bonn, vice president of marketing for Menasha.

"We're always looking for ways to be more efficient, but there are no plans to reduce or change the workforce in York," he said.

Both Menasha and Strine are family-owned firms, and the terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Menasha makes packaging materials and shipping containers, and Strine specializes in graphic prints and marketing items.

The acquisition will strengthen Menasha's operations on the East Coast, company President Mike Waite said in a press release.

Strine's York County operations include a manufacturing plant and two warehouses at 30 Grumbacher Road. Its company name has not yet changed.

Menasha owns plants in five other locations in Pennsylvania: Bethlehem, Latrobe, Philadelphia, Ruffs Dale and West Tobyhanna.
