About Wortman Printing
Wortman Printing was started in the garage of Del Wortman in 1990 and moved to a commercial facility after two years. They moved into their current facility on South Banker Street in 1996. Son James grew up in the business and then earned a printing management degree from Lakeland College and has been with the business ever since.
Del said that he couldn’t have received the award without the efforts of his son, James, and the other employees. “I wouldn’t have thought five years ago that the business would be where it is today – we’ve doubled business in that time.”
“The Alliance sets the bar high for our performance awards and Wortman Printing exceeded those goals,” said Tom Crouser, Chairman of the group. “They are examples of how a family-based business can prosper in times of increased competition by focusing on principles and practices geared to exceptional customer service. They truly transcend what customers want and go to the heart of what customers need.”
CPrint, Certified Printers International, is an organization of independently owned family-based businesses that strive for professionalism and performance among small business that commonly lack highly developed systems and leadership.
