GraphTec broke into the printing industry in the 1950’s as a trade shop named Lincoln Litho. After moving from Maryland to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, the company now resides back in Jessup, Maryland. GraphTec was acquired in 1998 by Consolidated Graphics.
Working with Procter & Gamble’s CoverGirl, North Charles Street Design Organization (a design agency to the college and university market), and National Geographic, GraphTec thrives with only 40 employees. GraphTec’s president, Russ Hewitt, proudly boasts that the company is on the upward trend, growing 20% in the past year alone. The expansion of their storage, fulfillment, and pick & pack business has been a key factor in the boost in productivity for the company.
CrossMedia campaigns are one of GraphTec’s specialties. In fact, GraphTec is Consolidated Graphics’ largest CrossMedia/Connect customer! Launching campaigns for organizations such as the University of Pennsylvania and St. Johns College, GraphTec continues to prosper in the online solutions arena, even signing a contract with Grant Thornton to produce a series of publications utilizing Interact, an interactive content management tool.
GraphTec is also one of the premier printers of Yupo, nationwide. In fact, one of the company’s largest customers designs printed products on Yupo for the military.
NOTE: Russ Hewitt, president of GraphTec, landed and managed Tyco International, which serves as a strategic sales success story. If you would like to get a copy of this case study, talk to your sales representative!
