Waldorf, Maryland March 12, 2018 Heritage Printing & Graphics were recognized by Maryland Department of Commerce for 40 years of operation in the Southern Maryland community.

Steve Gass, General Manager Heritage Printing & Graphics in Maryland, received the certificate and provided a tour of the renovated facility. The group included:

  • Mike Gill, Secretary, Maryland Department of Commerce
  • Brady Walker, Managing Director and Special Advisor., Maryland Department of Commerce
  • Steve Wall, Southern Maryland Regional Manager, Office of Business Development

The Secretary of Commerce for Maryland was visiting companies in the Southern Maryland area that have been exhibiting successful growth and expansion in the marketplace. He was extremely impressed with Heritages’ workforce development, the deployment of technology and the vibrancy of the facilities.

The goal is to develop an ongoing partnership with the state of Maryland to establish industry specific training programs for current and future employees of the company that will make the workforce more efficient and effective.

“It was a privilege to host the Maryland Secretary of Commerce at our production facility in Waldorf, MD. His desire to see Maryland businesses grow and prosper is encouraging and the States partnership with Heritage to further develop our workforce is very impactful and forward thinking.” Steve Gass

Heritage Printing & Graphics started in 1977 in the Gass’s family garage in Leonardtown, Maryland, by parents Allen and Margaret as Gass Printing Service. Allen taught his three sons, Joe, Steve, and Dean, the printing ropes, and the business slowly took over the house until the company finally moved the still very small business to its first commercial location in 1984 in their hometown.

In the past three and a half years, Heritage has seen significant growth, with wide and grand format being a big part of it. During this time Heritage has begun to market “Heritage Custom Signs and Displays” as a division of their company, while seeing this part of the business grow to more than 40 percent of their company’s revenue.
