Kirkwood began in 1973 as a single press printing technical manuals for Boston-area technology companies. Over the next four decades we grew from a commercial printer to a full-service integrated communications provider, and today we offer more than 25 different products and services.
Our history highlights this evolution: We launched Kirkwood Direct in 2007 to provide high-quality direct-marketing capabilities, and acquired Nu Graphics (today known as Kirkwood Digital) in 2012 to bring our customers full-service digital and grand-format printing, media duplication, and web-to-print. Meanwhile, Magnet Direct and Perrone Group added fundraising to our portfolio.
To maximize collaboration among our divisions, we’ve invested in our facilities, expanding our Wilmington headquarters to 80,000 square feet. In addition, we increased our manufacturing presence in the New York area in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey.
For the past ten years, our story has been one of explosive growth in a contracting industry. Since 2004, we’ve seen our revenue climb from $8.5 millionto the current level of $75 million, which is rare—perhaps even unheard of—in print manufacturing.
We’re a company on the move, but we’ve never lost sight of the quality and service that define us. Our work continues to be recognized by industry leaders like Sappi Paper, and our client-focused culture touches each and every part of the business. That customer commitment is one thing that will never change—it makes us proud of our history, and confident in our future.
