Technology, expansion continue to move Knepper Press forward in printing industry


6 minutes ago

Knepper Press keeps getting better.

Founded in Carnegie in 1873, Knepper Press is the oldest commercial printer in the Pittsburgh area. The printing and communications firm, which employs nearly 200 people, has grown from a small weekly newspaper publisher to the tri-state region’s largest independently owned, fifth-generation commercial printing company.

Knepper Press offers a complete range of in-house communication services, including sheet-fed, web and digital printing. In addition, they also provide mailing, marketing support, document management logistics and integrated website ordering.

Located at Clinton Commerce Park in Findlay Township, Knepper Press continues to make improvements toward modern technology for data, workflows and print and mail production and delivery.

Knepper Press acquired six different companies over the past 15 years and opened a 75,000-square-foot warehouse addition in 2018, bringing the plant to a total of 175,000 square feet.

They added a press that incorporates LED ink curing capabilities. Inks and coatings are 100 percent cured without volatile organic compounds coming off the press, eliminating any drying time. Now, UV and other high-end coatings are available on the same press.

Knepper also recently acquired Dual Print & Mail in Buffalo, N.Y.

This expansion has expanded Knepper’s strong position in Western Pennsylvania into the Western New York corridor, along adding large-format signage capabilities.

Despite all the technological and facility changes , one thing stays the same for Knepper Press — customer relationships.

“In addition to offering great quality and the ability to have very good pricing, probably the biggest thing for us is that we’ve maintained a solid workforce,” Knepper Press CEO Ted Ford said.

“There are a lot of talented people in the service element. It’s important that we get back to people and consult with them on how best to utilize their marketing dollars. A lot of people have cut back and cut back on that over the years. We’re easy to do business with.”

Commercial printing projects account for the majority of Knepper Press printing jobs. The advantage they add is that their mailing and fulfillment services condense projects to a single company, which creates efficiency for clients and eliminates logistical challenges.
