Arthur L. Salayda Joins A.F.L. Web Printing

VOORHEES, NJ—Arthur L. Salayda, a leader in New Jersey’s printing and publishing industry for more than 30 years, has joined A.F.L. Web Printing as a business development manager. In his new position, Salayda will assist with A.F.L. Web Printing’s continuing growth by working with major accounts seeking to utilize A.F.L.’s expanding range of services for newspaper publishers.

Salayda’s addition to the A.F.L. sales team follows a major expansion in the company’s capacity during the past two years. A.F.L. recently completed Phase II of the capital expansion at the new Regional Print Center in Secaucus, N.J. The facility now features 80 Manugraph DGM Units configured as 20 four-high towers with four folders. The additional equipment in Secaucus has allowed A.F.L. to balance its workload between the new facility and the company’s main print center in Voorhees, N.J. The result is additional capacity at both locations.

Salayda began his printing and publishing career in 1964 as an apprentice linotype operator at the Williamstown (N.J.) Plain Dealer while a student at Williamstown High School. After completing his education and military service, Salayda joined Cam-Glo Newspapers of Turnersville, N.J., in 1969. He rose from composing room foreman to production manager to general manager to president and publisher of Cam-Glo Newspapers. In the latter position he supervised all production, advertising and editorial functions for seven weekly newspapers and a commercial printing operation.

Between 1979 and 1980 Cam-Glo Newspapers sold its New Jersey weekly newspapers, expanded the commercial printing operation and was transformed into Evergreen Printing & Publishing of Bellmawr, N.J., a division of Independent Publications of Bryn Mawr, Pa. Since then Salayda has concentrated his efforts in the field of commercial printing. Under his leadership Evergreen’s sales rose dramatically. In 1990 he was named chief executive officer of Evergreen and was later given responsibility for commercial print sales at Independent’s Florida and New Hampshire newspapers.
