Interviewer: Can you tell us a little about O’Neil Data Systems, your history, how long you’ve been in business, how many employees, what kind of stuff you do?

Jim Lucanish: O’Neil has been around since 1974. Primarily we’re an in-house printer for the stock market, which evolved into commercial print. Basically we do a lot of healthcare, transactional, some books.

Interviewer: And how many employees?

Jim Lucanish: We have about 180.

Interviewer: And what does your production platform look like?

Jim Lucanish: We’re primarily—we used to be offset until the offset gloom hit. Now we’ve moved to inkjet technology

Interviewer: And so do you have any offset left?

Jim Lucanish: Yes, we do. We do and there is always a need for offset, yeah.

Interviewer: Yeah and so the kinds of applications that you’re producing mostly now are-

Jim Lucanish: We’re doing a lot of bound personalized books. We do a lot of healthcare statement work, EOBs, EOCs, evidence of coverage books. We do ID cards. We do all of AARP’s membership.

Jim Lucanish: Yes.

Jim Lucanish: You know I'm not sure. I'm dealing with the west coast.

Interviewer: He is like the CEO. And so I understand you’re expanding out of California.

Jim Lucanish: Yes, we are. We’re expanding into Dallas. We’ve purchased a building there in Plano, Texas, so we’re hoping to open June 1st. 

Interviewer: And will that be a sort of integrated workflow between the two plants or will they be separate?

Jim Lucanish: It will be an integrated workflow. We’re going to do digital dynamic mailing which means that a big mouthful, taking the stream of mail in and positioning properly for the quickest delivery.

Interviewer: So in a job or in a collection of jobs some of it will be printed in LA and some of it—that’s great.

Jim Lucanish: Yes.

Interviewer: That’s very cool.

Jim Lucanish: We’ve built all that.
