Established in 1980 by Robert and Dorothy Welch, Welch Publishing Company, Perrysburg, Ohio is best known for its four weekly newspapers; the Perrysburg Messenger Journal, Rossford Record Journal, Point & Shoreland Journal and Holland-Springfield Journal, reaching approximately 40,000 homes.
Welch Publishing has continuously used WebPress equipment since 1980, starting with a basic 3-unit Web Leader press and folder, soon after adding a similar press line along with a Quadra-Color. In 1998 they expanded their building and revamped their press lines to configure 2 sets of 2-highs as well as 5 new mono units and a folder, twinning their press lines together. In 2005, as the demand for color from advertisers and other publications increased, they purchased a Quad-Stack unit.
"We appreciate that WebPress equipment is easy to use, and are amazed with the fast make ready and registration that the Quad-Stack produces," states Adam Welch, Plant Manager. "We continue to be impressed with how great WebPress has been to work with through the years, both through the installations, and now with the technical support we receive."
Besides their own publications, Welch Publishing provides printing for local schools as well as some weekly and monthly publications, with an average impression count of 70,000 per month.
