Flottman Company Inc. Celebrates 100 Years of Printing Expertise.
The month of June marks the 100th anniversary of the Flottman Company, Crestview Hills, Ky. What started in 1921 as a print job shop has now become a leader in commercial printing, pharmaceutical miniature folding and digital marketing. Currently a woman-owned business and part of the global Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, Flottman Company is still privately held, and family owned and operated. Now in its third generation, Flottman Company continues to grow and prosper.
“It is an honor to lead the Flottman Company during this historic time and to carry our torch into another 100 years,” said Sue Flottman Steller, third generation co-owner and president. “We are privileged to have outstanding family, friends, partners, clients and employees who, over the years, made this event possible. Thank you all.”
F.E. Flottman founded the company with a focus on marketing and printing, and the commercial side of the business has grown nearly every year since 1921. In 1969 R.F. Flottman took over the reins and renewed the commercial printing focus. He moved the company from Cincinnati across the river to Crescent Springs in 1973. The company moved to a new 20,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility in Crestview Hills in 1998, after transitioning to the third generation in 1992 when R.F. Flottman retired.
Today, the company continues under the leadership of two of his children, Sue Steller Flottman and Peter Flottman. Their success continues and, most recently, Flottman Company purchased the Canon imagePRESS, enormously enhancing their commercial print capabilities. With both offset and enhanced digital printing capabilities, Flottman Company can provide nearly any print solution.
Although Flottman Company has continued to provide quality commercial printing for 100 years, the company truly began to differentiate its, solidifying their niche as a pharmaceutical and medical device insert provider, in 1973. When the FDA required the inclusion of informative leaflets with all pharmaceutical packaging, Flottman Company became a pioneer in the industry and produced some of the first miniature folded physician (PPI) and patient inserts (PI).
Flottman Company is now an industry leader in miniature folding and miniature printing for pharmaceutical, medical device, pet care, nutraceutical and commercial goods. In addition, Flottman Company established the Rxperts Printed Packaging Group in 1996, in order to offer complete packaging solutions including folding cartons, labels and inserts.
The company’s innovations didn’t stop with the additions of the pharmaceutical inserts and packaging services. Nearly five years ago, Flottman Company introduced FUSIONWRX Inc. as an intrapeneurial endeavor to create an independent media agency as a complement to the Flottman Company print abilities. The goal was to create a digital marketing firm that could market, advertise and promote businesses on a grand scale. In the past three years, the FUSIONWRX team has experienced tremendous growth in clientele, sales and revenue. The Flottman Company’s continuous growth and expansion to meet customer needs is what has allowed it to thrive for the past 100 years.
The Flottman Company family business is dedicated to success and upholding the quality of service initiated three generations ago, now with the goal of another 100 years of service.
