While Foster Printing of Santa Ana, CA, does not feel compelled to rule the world, the executive leadership team is fairly happy with dominating their small corner of it. Tim Blackburn, company president, is proud of how far the company has come since it was acquired by his father, Dennis, in 1988. "The last six years have really been amazing for Foster," he notes. "The growth we have experienced has surpassed what we'd done prior to that in the history of the company. And we feel like we've hit our mark for where we need to be—we've improved on turnaround, quality and capacity."
