Bindery 'Dupped,' Sister FirmsCreate Promising Niche Business
ROCHESTER, NY--Rochester Binding & Finishing (RBF), a trade binder in upstate New York, created an offshoot company, layerONE media, to add CD and DVD duplication to its capabilities. By leveraging RBF's finishing capabilities, the two firms are offering complete packaging solutions (practically under one roof, since layerONE is operating in a facility near RBF).
Rudy Warren, CEO of RBF, is president of the new company, with Jeff Favalo serving as operations manager and Nancy Schwach as sales representative.
"We've recently become aware of a growing demand for duplication of audio CDs, data CD-ROMs and DVDs," says Warren. "Our customers produce an array of manuals, marketing collateral and retail products that frequently incorporate CDs or DVDs as part of the package. For that reason, we see this new venture complementing our existing business in a way that will serve the marketplace and leverage our growth."
