Almar Printing Inc. is Celebrating Their 50th Anniversary!

Kansas City, Missouri April 12, 2016 – is a local, family-owned offset/digital printing company that is celebrating 50 successful years in the ever changing printing industry.

In 1966 Sam Gromowsky combined the names of his Mother, Alice, with the name of his wife, Mary. Sam wrote “Almar Printing” on a shingle and opened the door of his one man operation in his basement. In 1969, Sam and Mary moved Almar to the Waldo area, and in 1980, the company moved to its present location at 7735 Wornall. While Sam and Mary are still active in the company, it is their youngest son, Steve Gromowsky that runs the business today. “Having been literally born into the business, it is very exciting to be able to share this milestone with my parents, and to have them both remain active in the company today. The customers and employees of Almar Printing are all part of our extended family, and we are so appreciative that they’ve let us have the last 50 years of success together. We are very blessed.”

Through the years Almar has been able to obtain and keep many of their early customers. Our first customer is still an active customer to this day. It is our goal to continue that customer growth and retention in the future.

Almar will be having a celebration on April 27th with family, customers and friends to enjoy this great milestone. *event not open to general public, contact Shelby Burris to arrange press access.

New Wheels in the Districts

Each and every day our Waldo Roadrunners serve as goodwill ambassadors, information sources, Waldo advocates and security resources as they patrol the Waldo CID. That adds up to a lot of miles and wear and tear on bicycles. After four years of use, four of the bikes needed to be replaced. Thanks to Family Bicycles at 7337 Broadway in Waldo, the officers are equipped and on patrol. Even better, two of the former bicycles were able to be repaired and reused allowing officers in Brookside to saddle up again after an extended hiatus.
