Richardson Communication Group Joins Kingston Printing

Press release from the issuing company

Will Consolidate at Kingston with $11.2 million in Sales

Kansas City, Mo. – Kingston Printing, one of the Midwest’s leading and forward-thinking printing and graphic arts communications companies, today announced that after almost 100 years of providing service to the Kansas City area, Richardson Communications Group is now part of Kingston Printing.

Operations will be consolidated at Kingston’s facility in Eudora, Kansas. Kingston president Kyle Johnson is president and Richardson president James Barker joins Kingston as Executive Vice President of the business. Richardson had $5.2 million in sales in 2019 with 35 employees. Kingston had $6 million in sales in 2019 with 36 employees.

“Richardson has had a great reputation as one of top printers in the area for nearly a century. After several conversations with Jim Barker, it was clear that Richardson’s staff, equipment, and expertise with client-branded online storefronts and materials fulfilment would be a great complement to the services Kingston provides clients,” said Kyle Johnson.

Said Richardson president James Barker, “We have always focused on our customers, and serving our customers’ needs. Through this consolidation, we become an even stronger operation. With Kingston’s two 40-inch, 6-color presses capable of UV printing and perfecting, wide format printing, and Kingston’s expertise with complex direct mail marketing programs and variable data printing, I’m excited about the possibilities we bring customers in combining both business’s strengths under one roof.”
