About Japs-olson Company

Japs-Olson isn't likely to hold the presses for anyone. As a leading commercial printer in the US, Japs-Olson runs its large production facility located in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, nonstop. The company, founded in 1907 by Barney Japs and G.F. Olson, offers commercial printing and direct mail production services. It provides in-house prepress, sheetfed, – more... web, and flexo printing, as well as binding and fulfillment services and an onsite post office. Japs-Olson's customers include banking and financial institutions, consumer food and retail giants, credit card and insurance companies, and commercial products companies.

Japs-Olson caters to Fortune 1000 companies, specializing in marketing, advertising, and printing for its clients. During the past couple years, the company has invested some $35 million in enhanced technology and new equipment, such as a speedy 24-page Goss Sunday Press. In early 2009, Japs-Olson boosted its finishing capabilities by adding a Goss Pacesetter 2200 saddlestitcher to its production facility. The equipment has given the company the capacity to stitch up to 22,000 booklets in an hour and address inside and out. In 2007 Japs-Olson was named one of the fastest-growing printers in Minnesota by Switchboard.com, which counted some 1,250 printing companies operating in the state.

Several top executives at Japs-Olson have decades of tenure. Bob Murphy, the company's chairman, began working in the production department at Japs-Olson in 1965. He was named president of the company in 1977 and chairman and CEO in 1990. President Mike Beddor joined Japs-Olson in 1975, starting in the lettershop and mailing. – less
