Piedmont Press & Graphics among Top 100 in U.S.

Piedmont Press & Graphics in Warrenton has earned recognition among the “Top 100 Print Shops in the United States” from Printing News magazine and the industry think tank, What They Think.

The award goes to small commercial printers — with less than $25 million in annual revenue — based on performance during the previous year. Piedmont Press & Graphics for the first time earned the honor.

Piedmont Press competed against approximately 30,000 other small commercial printing operations across the U.S. Two franchise printers in Virginia also made the list.

“This is remarkable considering the challenges that COVID-19 posed to our industry,” Piedmont co-owner Tony Tedeschi. “Our team truly stepped up and reengineered our operations to help respond to pandemic conditions. We benefitted from our crew’s creativity and the community’s generous support of our firm.

“Thankfully, we were able to expand our staff over the past six months and are coming out of the pandemic as a larger, more talented operation.”

Mr. Tedeschi and his wife Holly lead a staff of 15. Piedmont’s sales totaled $1.34 million last year, according to Printing News.

Revenue declined in 2020, but Mr. Tedeschi added: “We’re also a survival story.”

The company last year quickly moved to manufacture “sneeze guards” and other protective equipment for businesses and government agencies that continued to operate through the pandemic.

Mr. Tedeschi and a partner, whom he later bought out, started T.R. Press in 1987. After a merger in the 1990s, the company changed its name to Piedmont Press and Graphics.

The company about a decade ago expanded into sign production and installation.
