Tri-State Printing under new ownership
STEUBENVILLE — A mainstay in the downtown business community is now under new ownership.
Tri-State Printing President Richard Pflug announced the sale Thursday to MPB Print & Sign Superstore, a regional commercial printing and mailing company.
Neither Pflug or H. Andrew Walls III, president of MPB Print & Sign Superstore, returned calls Thursday.
“After 65 years of serving you, Tri-State Printing would like to announce the sale of our printing business to MPB Print & Sign Superstore,” Pflug said in a brief message to customers and community leaders that was delivered in Thursday’s mail. “We appreciate your loyalty and friendship over the years and are very confident in our sale to MPG.”
Walls assured customers the company “will continue to give you the highest quality of service, products and commitment to your business.
“We have been in business since 1895, and look forward to partnering with you for many years to come,” Walls wrote, adding MPB’s mission is “to provide local and remote customers with quality service and value as a complete source for graphics, offset, digital and wide-format printing.
“Our services are a reflection of our philosophy,” Walls continued. “We do whatever it takes to meet our customers’ needs. We offer everything from business cards, forms, brochures and folders to banners, signs, car wraps and mailings.”
Pflug and Tri-State Printing, headquartered at the corner of Third and Washington streets, have been recognized many times for the quality of their work and service.
That included the 2018 Small Business Award from the Eastern Ohio Development Alliance, which pointed to its experienced workers, modern automation and manufacturing efficiencies, attributes that allowed the company to distribute its products across the country.
