A.B.Dick and Minuteman Press International Reach Milestone
Press release from the issuing company
CHICAGO, IL - Minuteman Press International and A.B.Dick Company recently recognized a significant milestone as the two leading printing and graphic arts companies celebrated a 30-year business partnership, a remarkable and stunning achievement in today’s world. A ceremony honoring the occasion took place at Minuteman’s corporate headquarters on Long Island, New York.
A.B.Dick provides a complete store equipment package to all new Minuteman stores, including the top-selling DPM2340 digital platesetter. Minuteman had 35 stores when it formed an agreement in 1974 with A.M. International, the forerunner to Multigraphics that later merged with A.B.Dick. Under the leadership of President Bob Titus, the world’s largest printing franchise has expanded its horizons worldwide with more than 900 locations and is continuously rated number 1 by Entrepreneur Magazine year after year.
“We have worked well together as loyal partners,” said Bob Titus, President of Minuteman Press International. “A.B.Dick is one of our leading vendors and they respond very well in any situation. The new equipment they have developed is terrific. Our storeowners deal with sophisticated customers and they are extremely satisfied with the performance of the DPM2340. The 9982 is a great press to do single or multi-color work with.”
Besides the DPM2340 and 9982 press, the A.B.Dick equipment package includes the ScanMaster digital scanning solution, Momentum Workflow, and a few accessory products such as a Challenge zoom cutter, Challenge drill, and a tabletop stapler.
“Minuteman has always been one step ahead of everyone else. That’s one of the many reasons why they have been so successful,” said Al DeLaura, A.B.Dick Franchise Account Manager who has worked on the Minuteman account since 1977. “They have chosen to be associated with outstanding products like the DPM line of digital platesetters, which has over 3,000 installations. We look forward to providing them with the right equipment to keep their storeowners and customers satisfied for the next 30 years.
