South Central Printing, Inc is no longer!
- Trifecta Print and Design, Inc has taken its place!
By Ralph Roy Waggener
It's been a long run of 37 years for Glinda and I here at SCP, but we are no longer in business. Lee Grider and William Grider along with Doug Waggener have formed a new Company that will be known as Trifecta Print. Between the three of them there is a lot of experience.
Doug and Lee grew up helping us with collating and other jobs like putting together the Blood Lines Book for the Kentucky Derby. Lee has worked full time for 27 years, William has about 20 years working here and Doug has about 20 years working full time. Lee has managed SCP for the last several years and knows how this complicated business works and Doug has become a top representative and travels some 1,000 miles a week covering our customer base over most of Central Kentucky.
William took some time out to work at another job and do some more work on his Degree in Computer Networking before coming back to help Lee run SCP. You could say this Trifecta has the knowledge and skill set to run their company very well.
SCP went through some very tough times starting back in 2008 and is just now getting back to making some profit. The business has morphed into almost a totally different business in this long 8 years and has taken a toll on both Glinda and me.
We live here in the church part of the business and will continue to live and help as much as we can. I expect a lot of new growth from this new ownership. They will keep all the same staff and a very good group of employees who know the printing business as well as anyone anywhere.
Going broke teaches you a lot and if you keep your nose to your work things tend to work their way out! Don't give up; no don't ever give up is what we have been doing for 8 years and although business is a lot different now, it is improving.
I would like to tell you how proud I am of these three for taking on such a challenge and making changes as they take over that will help them grow this new business here in Columbia!
My son-in-law, William thought of the name Trifecta; we did the Blood Lines Book for the Kentucky Derby and later we did the blood lines for all the Triple Crown races. SCP did this for around 30 years (not sure when we started doing it). Trifecta will do Design work, printing and finishing work that make up the three steps of printing. There are three owners, so this name seemed to fit like a glove.
Please let me be the first to introduce Trifecta Print and Design, Inc to Columbia and the rest of the world! Doing business with these three will be a pleasant adventure for you. They have been taught over the years honesty, honesty and honesty more than anything else, and a good dose of do it right the first time!
PS: Smiles will continue but is owned by Trifecta Print. I will continue to write and William Grider my son-in-law and one of the new owners will continue to supply the bad jokes as well as the good jokes; anyway, he gets the credit, good or bad. - Ralph Roy Waggener
