CJK Group Acquires McNaughton & Gunn; Adding to its Sheridan Family of Print Facilities

BRAINERD, MN – CJK Group, Inc. announced that an agreement has been completed to acquire the assets of McNaughton & Gunn in Saline, Michigan.

Founded in 1975 on the principle that “people make a difference,” McNaughton & Gunn has been continuously producing books for publishers and self-publishers around the world.
