Solo Printing -- Vision Leads to Success
Corporate responsibility also rings true with the Hernandez brothers, and not because it is the cause du jour. The company has earned chain-of-custody certification from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
“We’ve got to protect the environment and plan for the future, for the sake of our children and our grandkids,” Manny Hernandez relates. “Plus, a lot of our clients are Fortune 500 companies that want to print on certified paper.”
A sound of knocking wood can be heard at Solo Printing, perhaps to ward off superstitions—for the company has remained largely unscathed by the economic downturn of the past year. They’re projecting a remarkable growth rate of 20 percent for 2009. The figure would be closer to 25 or 30 percent with a more robust economy.
“At the end of the day, it’s all about teamwork,” Manny Hernandez says. “Our dedicated employees have enabled us to differentiate ourselves from the competition. We have one of the best groups of people in the industry.”
Having a vision helps, as well. PI
