Georgia Printco Opens PA Plant to Serve Northeast Customers
PITTSTON, PA—August 29, 2013—Georgia Printco owners, Sheldon Hurst Jr. and Tom Clarke, sought a location to better serve existing and new customers in the Northeast. Their answer was a 30,000-square-foot facility, equipped with the latest VUTEk print technology, which will allow them to offer the same American-made products with the same quality and excellent customer service Georgia Printco is known for in the industry.
This location offers one-day ground delivery to a vast number of locations as it is located next door to the Wilkes-Barre Scranton International Airport, allowing the company to virtually expedite any order anywhere. Georgia Printco Northeast was created, staffed, and opened, as scheduled, on August 1, 2013. "Georgia Printco is a community-minded, made-in-America company," said Hurst. "We are proud to bring jobs into Pittston, PA, and we hope to also help the American economy."
Mimi (Hurst) Harowicz, plant manager, and Michael Clarke, marketing director, will lead the “GPNE” operation as their expertise will provide a resource to customers, as well as the ability to maintain a personal approach which Georgia Printco has proudly made a core value of the company.
"Our customer base has increased significantly over the years and we felt it was necessary to extend a more localize service to our customers in the Northeast," noted Tom Clarke. "This location accomplishes that task. Our intention is to continue to expand and provide jobs by offering American-made products made with American Know How.“
