New Location, 294 Taunton Avenue, Seekonk
A destructive fire in March of 2015 which completely destroyed all the company’s printing equipment, could not keep Minuteman Press of Seekonk’s owner, Marc Frechette, down, The day after windows at the Fall River Avenue location were boarded up, Marc, a second generation Minuteman owner, was up and running with his staff at his home. Shortly thereafter, the presses were rolling again. Other Minuteman Press companies had jumped into the breech to help a fellow printer out, and Konica Minolta had offered its demo equipment in their showroom.
On May 1, just two months after the disaster, Marc and his loyal staff, reopened at a new location on Taunton Avenue. “There certainly was a silver lining to the whole event,” he says. “Today we have upgraded to totally new equipment, all using the latest technology. We now have 100% digital production” And in searching for a new location, Marc was able to merge with The Copy Shop, a successful instant print business that had a nearby prime location for his business, with an abundance of parking and easy customer access.
Marc prides himself on the company’s excellent customer service, which won a coveted “Top Quality” award from Minuteman Press International, Inc. “We go above and beyond what is necessary to make sure our customers are happy and successful,” he says. He and his staff often consult with customers helping out with marketing ideas. The company prints business cards, flyers, newsletters, carbonless forms, invitations, labels, manuals, notepads, presentation folders, menus, tickets, large format black and white as well as color and much more.
