Bradford & Bigelow Hits Record Sales Growth in 2020
Bradford & Bigelow placed among the top 100 list in the 2020 Printing Impressions 350 and ranked number one among the top ten book printers in North America with sales growth of 16%. The list, compiled by Printing Impressions, is an annual ranking of the nation’s largest printers and it is based on sales volume increase from 2019 to 2020.
“On behalf of the hard-working team at Bradford & Bigelow, we are beyond proud to be recognized as one of the top 100 printers and top 10 book printers in the nation by Printing Impressions,” said Karl Shearer, VP of Sales at Bradford & Bigelow. “This ranking reflects the customer enthusiasm we see for our incredibly fast lead times, top-notch quality, and our dedicated team members that work tirelessly to ensure customer satisfaction. Special thanks are in order to our long-term partners and team leaders who have made our year-over-year growth possible.”
In the past year, Bradford & Bigelow has completed a $20-million expansion which included the installation of a new 48-page Manroland Press, the upgrade to Screen high-definition digital equipment, a 50,000 square foot plant expansion, and the addition of 50,000 square feet of warehousing space in nearby Seabrook. While navigating COVID-19, Bradford & Bigelow also implemented enhanced safety procedures, a $2/hour premium for manufacturing personnel, and a free lunch and dinner program to safeguard team member health and maintain client commitments.
John Galligan, President of Bradford & Bigelow concludes “At B&B, the focus of our ISO 9001:2015 and G7 trained workforce remains the same, to be the Best-in-Class Supply Chain Partner for our clients with 8.5×11 products. With the expansion complete, B&B now has the infrastructure in place to reach our revenue goal of $100 million within the next five years. Unlike many of our worthy competitors that want to become diversified marketing service providers, B&B is proud to be a top-of-the-line book printer solving our client’s supply chain issues so they can focus on content development and marketing their products.”
