History

In 1958, Irvin J. Borowsky saw an opportunity to become the leading information source in an already competitive field of printing publications. NAPCO Media, established originally as North American Publishing Company, launched its first brand, Printing Impressions, with only four employees.

Today, NAPCO Media successfully produces print and online content, events, video services and marketing solutions for the markets it serves. NAPCO Media’s growth and vitality reflects a philosophy that recognizes and values talented people who are seeking to grow with the Company.

The Company continues to expand by capitalizing on its strong financial footing, its lack of shareholder pressure (NAPCO Media is a family owned business) and its willingness to invest by actively listening to its readers and advertisers and creating solutions that fill voids in our markets.
