Small Printer Thinks Big
While Burke and Mays have used innovative approaches with their clients and employees, they take a stern back-to-basics business approach. Over the years, the pair have continued to reinvest in the company.
"We are wall-to-wall machinery," says Burke. The four-color sheetfed printer currently runs Ryobi and an Omni Adast presses.
"We are located right next to the railroad tracks, so we've been able to keep our overhead costs low," states Burke.
"We've also done a lot of investment in new technology over the years. It may not be the newest technology, but it is much more efficient," says Mays.
In fact, when the men bought the company three years ago, the company was still using a typewriter to process its invoices, Mays and Burke have since replaced almost every piece of equipment in the shop in order to increase their capabilities with minimal capital investment.
In the future, the company plans to expand. "Right now, we are right on the edge. We just don't want to expand too quickly."
