From noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, the public is invited to join in the celebration of Taylor Communications 50 years in business.

Taylor Communications, 1750 Miller Ave., produces various print products including forms and bank checks.

And even though Taylor is celebrating its half-century mark, the local company’s actually been in business for 103 years, noted Mark Pohovey, the plant manager.

Taylor Communications in Shelbyville was formerly Standard Register Co., a fixture in the local economy.

“It’s been 3 years now,” since Taylor took over, Pohovey said.

Business remains strong despite changes in the printing industry brought on by technology, he said, and Taylor’s 80 employees are a big part of that.

A strong work ethic, customer service and on-time delivery are keys to the company’s success, said Pohovey.

“We have had terrific people who’ve worked here over the years and today,” he said.

Three employees have been with the company for more than 40 years; 16 other employees have been at the local facility for more than 30 year, said Pohovey.

The average length of service is nearly 16 and a half years, he added.

Pohovey cited a good working environment, a comfortable atmosphere and plant safety as reasons for staff longevity.

Willingness to change with the times is the other reason Taylor Communications remains in a strong business position, Pohovey said.

The company has embraced new products, new equipment and new processes over time, he noted.

However, the core of the local facility is printed forms.

“We’re a rotary forms plant,” Pohovey said.

Taylor Communications prints business forms of all types by way of offset printing, a process developed decades ago. The forms include security documents to prevent fraud, he said.

Even with the new technologies, Pohovey foresees print remaining a strong product.

“We’re proud of the fact we’ve been here 50 years,” he said.

Food and refreshments will be provided at Saturday’s open house at Taylor Communications and all are welcome to attend from noon to 4 p.m.
