RPI Expanding Atlanta-Area Digital Printing Plant
SEATTLE—RPI, a provider of personalized printing services for businesses worldwide, announced it is expanding its Atlanta-area facilities by 70 percent in order to accommodate growth in its printed photo merchandise and corporate communications business units.
The company recently broke ground on its expansion adjacent to its existing facilities in Kennesaw, GA, to accommodate increased manufacturing capabilities, including printing technology, new office space and increased staffing.
“It’s an exciting time at RPI,” said Rick Bellamy, CEO at RPI. “Demand for fast delivery of sophisticated and personalized print products by consumers and brand marketers is on the rise. By expanding our facilities near Atlanta, RPI will be well-positioned to respond quickly to this demand with technology-driven solutions for our customers in the United States and across the globe.”
The expansion builds on RPI’s acquisition of the Kennesaw, GA, facility in 2013. RPI-Atlanta was founded in 1992 as DPI, a provider of print-on-demand solutions for corporate communications, including books, direct mail, manuals, coupons, point-of-purchase materials and large-format graphics for Fortune 500 companies such as Nestlé, CBRE and Johnson Controls. RPI acquired DPI to expand its breadth of services and speed global delivery of products produced there and in its facilities in Seattle and Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
RPI’s consumer business includes production and fulfillment of a wide selection of private label photo products from personalized photo books, posters and calendars, to invitations, greeting cards and stationery, as well as creative product design and software integration services. RPI’s customers and partners represent the majority of the photo merchandise industry.
