Superior purchased Gotham Ink and Color Company, a manufacturer of flexographic and rotogravure inks, from Samuel and Isabel Kantor. Mr. Kantor, a recognized authority on liquid inks, was retained to operate and manage Gotham.
This acquisition played a significant role in the growth of Superior. Gotham had two operating branches, one in Long Island City, New York, and another in Marlboro, Massachusetts.
