Corporate History and Overview
Gene Blanc founded Midland Press Corporation in July 1982. Gene’s vision was to provide customers with high-quality, quick-turn, short-run, one and two color printed literature and technical publications – a need he identified as being virtually unfulfilled in the printing industry.
25 years later, Midland Information Resources continues to fulfill this same mission. Our success has come from our employees and their willingness to not only accept the changes in our industry but to actually initiate many of these changes. We have partnered with industry leaders to develop and implement new solutions in electronic file management, short-run digital printing, variable printing, and one-off book printing and distribution solutions. We have capitalized on the technological advances in our industry to successfully transition from a “traditional” printing company to a high-tech provider of information services.
Our technology arm specializes in developing content management solutions. Through a unique blend of technology, software development and consulting services, we partner with our customers to develop on-line business strategies customized to fit each customer’s unique communication needs.
