It all started in 1974 in El Reno in a humble print shop for what today is Heritage, The Integrated Resource company that handles all of its customers’ commercial printing needs.
The first shop was a mere 900 square feet, but as the company began to grow by leaps and bounds, it now includes a 100,000-square-foot facility with 80 full-time and 20 part-time employees.
So what makes Heritage stand out among the rest? “We are best known for our traditional and digital printing capabilities,” says Curtis Jones, chief business development officer. “However, based upon our customers’ goals, we deploy a cross-media marketing strategy utilizing promotional products, data-driven print, mailing and web-based fulfillment.”
The team at Heritage works closely with its customers through a discovery process to develop and implement strategies that help them reach their vastly varied goals. With an ever-changing marketplace, Heritage stays on the cutting edge by problem-solving and working as a team to go the extra mile to find the exact solution for every customer.
“From the presses humming out on the floor to our endless promotional ideas, custom fulfillment websites, to our seamless mailing and distribution — we are as multifaceted as the customers we serve,” Jones says.
Being in Oklahoma has proved fortuitous for Heritage. Jones says being smack-dab in the middle of the country benefits the company from a distribution perspective.
“Companies in coastal cities may experience six- to seven-day transportation time in comparison to most destinations receiving freight at a maximum of three days from Central Oklahoma,” he says.
