Peczuh Printing Appoints Print Industry Veteran to Chief Operating Officer

Press release from the issuing company

Reaffirms Commitment to Technology

Frank Peczuh Jr., President and CEO of Peczuh Printing, announced today the appointment of Paul Lynaugh to the position of COO. In this role Paul will lead Operations and Sales to continue Peczuh’s legacy of providing a high level of service to existing clients while pursuing new clients and expanding into to new markets. Careful scrutiny of the company’s supply chain, consisting of numerous substrates, inks, and other materials has led to extensive investment in procurement staffing, software systems, and best practices to ensure customer success.

Peczuh, Jr commented, “Paul’s background as a supplier to digital, litho, and flexo print operations aligns with our goal of deploying technology, people, and materials that are a step ahead of our customers’ needs. He has a wealth of print industry experience, deep knowledge of print production methods, and, most importantly, a mindset that looks at our businesses from a customer’s perspective.”

Peczuh Printing started in 1962 in Price, Utah and has grown to a $30 million, 145-employee business with three production facilities (Price, Lindon and Salt Lake City). Peczuh has an impressive lineup of equipment and capabilities to serve a diversified mix of clients. Its G7-qualified operations consist of three Komori Lithrone 40? sheetfed presses: a 10-color perfector, a six-color UV press, and a six-color with aqueous coater. Digital output capabilities include a Fujifilm J Press 750S sheetfed inkjet press, four Konica-Minolta color and monochrome printers and a Fujifilm Acuity and Acuity Prime wide format flatbed printers. Previous to joining Peczuh, Lynaugh had a long and successful career at the Graphics Division of Fujifilm where he held several leadership positions, the most recent as VP of sales and marketing for Latin American Markets.

“The equipment is impressive. More impressive are the people,” commented Lynaugh. “When you select Peczuh, you are partnering with a team of problem solvers and innovators who are dedicated to provide the most productive print process from receipt of a digital file to delivery of the highest quality finished print job. I see Peczuh as a high-tech company, where ‘print’ just happens to be the deliverable. We want to be an unbreakable link in our customers’ supply chain.”

Peczuh has managed to do what is often difficult with rapid growth: maintain a high level of customer service. “My father established Peczuh Printing back in 1962; he taught us to listen to our customers. He said to let clients dictate what we should become and how we should do it,” Pezcuh Jr. notes. This philosophy has led to Pezcuh Printing growth well beyond commercial printing, such as packaging, direct mail, signs and banners, web-to-print, mailing and fulfillment services.

Peczuh Jr commented further saying, “We understand that there a lot of moving pieces in communications these days. Many times, it’s a mix of print elements, and we strive to deliver everything the client needs. This is, of course, a moving target. We want to engage intensely and constantly with our customers and move forward together to ensure mutual success.”
