A whirlwind of activity over the past few days has resulted in our sister company, Quality Quick Print (QQP) opening a location in Pierre. QQP is planning a new sales office, showroom and potentially some on-demand production equipment in the Pierre community.
State Publishing was the former printing company located in Pierre. They serviced government work, associations and tourism for Pierre and the Black Hills areas. They came upon hard times over the past 2.5 years after the Robert’s family sold the company. When former owner Tom Roberts was contacted here is what he had to say,
“The Roberts family enthusiastically supports Quality Quick Print opening a location in Pierre. They will ensure that quality print services continue in the Pierre area.”
Feickert was asked to react to this quote and he simply said, “Tom, his dad and my dad (Roger Feickert, Founder of QQP), go way, way back. They always had mutual respect for each other and both operated true family owned businesses, just like we will do.”
QQP has a dynamic business model providing creative solutions that help their customers succeed. Their motto is “Your Brand. On Anything. Anywhere.” They certainly live up to this as they have traditional and digital printing, mailing, large format signs, banners, flags, laser engraving as well as screen print and embroidered apparel. They are part of a network of creative companies called Midstates Group. They focus on large volume, direct mail printing and state of the art fulfillment. Also part of the group is Panther Premier Print Solutions. Their focus is on high-end sheetfed, mailing, digital and large format signs and banners. In all, they employ over 250 team members and have over 225,000 square feet of production capacity between Pierre, Aberdeen and Sioux Falls.
