Southwest Binding & Laminating Milestone: 50 years of Service and Excellence

Tuesday, November 01, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

Maryland Heights, MO - This month marks the 50th anniversary for Southwest Binding & Laminating, a long-standing supplier of binding, finishing and laminating equipment and supplies in North America. A family-owned business, Southwest has grown from the basement of its founders, H.J. and Mary Mercer, to a nationally recognized leader of supplies and equipment in the print finishing industry. The flag of ownership has passed to the couple’s 3 children, Kevin-Ann, Mark & Michael Mercer. Kevin-Ann retired in 2010 leaving the future direction of the company to Mark & Mike. Several acquisitions later, Southwest is expanding and moving forward stronger than ever thanks in part to our loyal customer base and our unparalleled customer service, sales and warehouse teams.

Mark Mercer CEO/Co-owner- “I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with the individuals that have comprised our Southwest team over the years. At Southwest, we’re a family. With a strong, loyal customer base, and the uncompromising support of our vendors, I look forward to the many opportunities we’re creating for the future.”

Michael Mercer Sr. Vice President/Co-owner- “I’ve always been grateful for the opportunity my father provided to our family when he founded Southwest Binding & Laminating. Being an employee and eventually an owner of this company has been a very humbling experience as I have had the opportunity to work side by side with so many incredible people. I plan to continue the hard work and dedication instilled by my father to keep this company successful. None of this would ever have been possible without great customers and great employees.”

In an era where companies come and go, Southwest Binding & Laminating continues to provide quality products and dependable service from their 3 warehouse locations in Virginia, Missouri, and California. Southwest continually searches for products and equipment solutions to fulfill the expectations of their clients.
