Press release from the issuing company
Roseville, CA – In recognition of Harris & Bruno International’s commitment to invest and expand business in the Greater Sacramento Region, the Sacramento Area Commerce and Trade Organization (SACTO) recently honored H&B with “The Inside Track” award at the Salute to New Industry event.
“It was an honor to be recognized,” Harris & Bruno President Nick Bruno said about the event held in early March. “There are many other innovative and hardworking companies in the region. It’s great to be one of so many.”
Harris & Bruno has been manufacturing auxiliary equipment for printing presses for more than 60 years. Current products focus on inking and coating systems, specializing in anilox rolls, chambered doctor blade systems and pumping solutions.
The company moved from the Bay Area to Roseville in 1993. An expansion took place this past year in order to offer customers a full-service anilox roll program.
With this expansion, Harris & Bruno is now the most vertically integrated supplier of anilox rolls in the USA. Now, anilox roll core manufacturing, ceramic coating, laser engraving, cell cleaning, and cell measuring and certification all happen in the Roseville plant.
There was discussion within Harris & Bruno of creating the new anilox roll division in Nevada. But the benefits of expanding in Roseville included the synergy of having everything under one roof, a better workers’ comp rating in California and the fact that Roseville Electric’s power is less expensive than Nevada’s.
Local advantages of Harris & Bruno’s expansion include increasing staff by 8 percent and increasing sales by 20 percent.
“It is clear that we have much to celebrate as a region,” SACTO Chair Brice Harris said. “It was truly inspiring to welcome and pay tribute to this year’s honored companies and to recognize the continued success of companies that are powering prosperity and innovation in this region. The spirit of Sacramento is alive and well as evidenced by the achievements highlighted at this year’s Salute to New Industry.”
