Our 130th Anniversary: May 14 was Founder’s Day at Curtis 1000

A Message to All Curtis 1000 Employees from Steve Geiger:

Our 130th year has begun with a bang.
Can you believe it is already May?

In every location our customer service teams are supporting our business solutions consultants and business development managers, who are out there working for and earning new business in this still-tough economy, while our production, mailing and ebusiness teams are delivering solutions that are designed and customized exclusively for the best customers a company could ask for.  Our new Managed Services solution, CurtisOne, is rolling out nationwide and has gained traction already with several large accounts.

Our 2012 plans are flying along.  Our new technology solutions are gaining momentum with our target audiences throughout our markets, with development of our newest solutions well underway.  We have set a very fast pace in Sales, Marketing, Finance and IT.

In short, we are moving toward our goals for the year and our future— all working together better than ever before in our long history.   And this is really saying something, since Curtis built its reputation in the industry, earned the trust of its customers and became the envy of its competition, through the foundation of dedicated people like you!

I am proud of the team we have become—no less caring and committed than those who came before us and retired happy, knowing they had done a great job for the company, their families, their colleagues and themselves.  We are a part of a very proud tradition of innovation and exemplary service, unique in our consultative approach with our customers, inventing and patenting products that became standards in the industry and are used today, known for collaborating with our customers on their needs and objectives instead of simply selling products to them.

All of these factors, plus the skills and knowledge possessed by all of you, make us who we are:  a company that our founder, Henry Russell Curtis, would be astounded and fascinated to encounter today.  We are an organization that has prospered for 130 years, possibly beyond his wildest dreams back in 1882.

Thank you for offering our customers your very best work every day.
