Casey Printing Marks Centennial Anniversary
KING CITY, CA—At a time when consolidations and plant closings seem to dominate industry news, a fixture of this California town keeps plugging away with the same family ownership.
Casey Printing celebrated its 100th year of business with an open house and party on October 19. Approximately 250 people attended the event, which featured food, drink and live Dixieland jazz music.
Casey Printing began life as a small weekly newspaper and print shop assembled by Fred Vivian. It grew over the years to include high-quality publications and commercial work. Current co-owners Bill and Richard Casey invested in modern sheetfed and web printing presses, allowing the company to churn out magazines, catalogs, directories, brochures and newsletters, as well as business printing.
It's a far cry from the days when Vivian would ride through the Monterey countryside in his horse and buggy, gathering print orders and selling subscriptions to his newspaper, The Rustler.
"Publishers, colleges and universities, city governments, manufacturers and distributors, and advertising agencies make up a bulk of our clients," noted Richard Casey. "Transferring electronic files over the Internet, and delivering finished product with our own fleet of trucks, allows us to operate efficiently from King City."
In addition to its King City headquarters, Casey Printing also has sales offices in the northern and southern part of California.
