Minuteman Press Expands Its Reach with Canon Solutions America

MELVILLE, N.Y., Nov. 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced that Minuteman Press of Lehigh Valley, the area's leading print provider, has added two locations that will exclusively feature state-of-the-art Canon production equipment, offering the highest quality of digital output.

Partnering with Canon Solutions America, Minuteman Press's new shop in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania, was acquired through the purchase of Keystone Copy & Ship, which operated as an independent print provider for the last 22 years. This latest acquisition marks the company's fifth location in the area. Additionally, the nationally recognized printing franchise will add its sixth location in Allentown, Pennsylvania, in early 2015, further solidifying its place as the print provider of choice throughout the region. This will be the company's second Allentown location. All six print shops will operate using Canon equipment exclusively.

"Our relationship with Canon Solutions America has enabled us to vastly expand our presence in the area as our collaboration has provided our customers with the utmost efficient and reliable printing services," said David Pike, owner of Minuteman Press of Lehigh Valley, who with his parents Dorothy and Richard Woodyatt started the Lehigh Valley franchise 26 years ago with the opening of the Bethlehem location. "From our very first purchase of production equipment to our most recent acquisitions of Canon's newest offerings, there's a reason why our company continues to grow with the help of Canon Solutions America."

With other Pennsylvania locations in Bethlehem, Easton, and the campus of DeSales University, Minuteman Press, the world's largest printing franchise with over 900 stores in 6 countries, now dominates the region's print landscape with dynamic printing, copying, and marketing services. The new presence in downtown Allentown, however, represents much more than the opening of a new office. As the Allentown community prepares for a major revitalization, Minuteman Press continues to serve as a cornerstone for what is becoming one of the more intriguing "up-and-coming" downtown locations in the region.

"Building our business and furthering our foothold on the area is a credit to our relationship with Canon Solutions America and overall Canon technology," said Pike. "We continue to stay on the cutting-edge of Canon's leading technology by continually investing in their latest offerings and newest products."

The new location in Allentown, currently slated for a January 2015 opening, is set to reside in the heart of the city's downtown section at the Two City Center corporate facility. Minuteman Press's newest office will be a part of Allentown's larger corporate growth plan, as this facility encapsulates the city's commitment to transforming its image into a vibrant urban community.

"It's been very exciting to watch Minuteman Press grow and become such a leader in the Greater Allentown area, and a real honor to be part of that growth," said Tracie Sokol, vice president, Marketing, Enterprise Services and Solutions, Canon Solutions America. "Their ability to quickly turn around quality work from the simplest copy job to the most complex marketing campaign is what separates them from the pack and puts them at the forefront of the industry in their region."
