Heeter’s acquisition of Duke Printing in May, 2021 is sparking something new for our clients – new services, new innovations, new solutions.
Founded more than 75 years ago, Heeter is known for our continual evolution and innovation in the printing industry. We take pride in being first to market with technologies that enhance production with speed, personalization, and quality.
- We were the first commercial printer in the United States to operate Ricoh’s flagship inkjet VC70000 press.
- We have aligned with several strategic partners to ensure continuity and uptime for our clients, never falling behind on a project or a deadline.
- We find effective and efficient ways to get every job done to the highest standards.
It’s with these values and commitments in mind that we have made a strategic acquisition of another print and mail company, Duke Print & Mail Solutions, of Cleveland, Ohio.
