From selling blueprinting supplies out of a two-bedroom apartment to becoming metro Atlanta’s exclusive Xerox agency, RSA member Repro Products is now celebrating 40 years in the reprographic industry. Founded in 1979 by Robert Feldberg, this company is dedicated to its community, customers, and employees while being the leading provider of wide format technical and graphics equipment, printing, and reprographic services. The RSA is proud to count companies such as Repro Products, and sister company, The Color Spot as members because of the many ways they have served and impacted both the industry and their community around them.
RPI was honored by the Cobb Chamber of Commerce in 2005 as the Small Business of the Year and has received many accolades from the community for its philanthropic actions and contributions. The company also received the 2009 Business Community Service Recognition Award from the Cobb Chamber of Commerce and Georgia Trend magazine and was a 2013 Georgia Family Business of the Year Finalist, awarded by the Cox Family Enterprise Center. The Chamber was present during their 40th anniversary ribbon cutting ceremony on June 6th and is just another endorsement of the company’s belief that “many satisfied, repeat customers are an important part of the Repro Products story.”
When asking Brenda Hansen, marketing director of Repro Products, why she believes the company is special, she spoke to the fact that a week after their 40th anniversary, their longest tenured employee member, Ken Smith, celebrated 30 years on staff. Smith acts as Field Service Manager and is pictured below. Because of Bob’s commitment and loyalty to staff, many employees have worked with the company for 10 or more years. Hansen is no exception as she has worked for RPI for 13 years. As a continuing commitment to their employees, the Feldberg Family scholarship fund was established In 2016. This fund provides assistance in pursuit of higher education to employees/family members of Repro Products family of companies. This year, 3 members were awarded the scholarship by a selection committee comprised of employees, an independent volunteer board member, and an advisor from the Cobb Community Foundation.
Through the years, the company has grown significantly by adapting to industry change and offering new opportunities in products and services for their customers. Some of their success can be attributed to embracing new 3D laser scanning technology, drone aerial imaging services, and becoming a Xerox agency. In fact, Repro Products is proud to be the premier Atlanta Xerox Agent since 1989 by providing office & multi-function and production products, services, supplies and resources to metro Atlanta, Georgia. Their 3D laser scanning services enable clients to add, modify, validate and document their design process in context from existing environments while their drone services, include FAA-certified Part 107 pilots and drone rentals, to both commercial and government customers. By their investment in sales team and marketing in new product and services areas, RPI are showing that traditional reprographic firms can adapt and grow.
The RSA congratulates Repro Products for their 40 years of service, commitment and loyalty to their customers and employees alike. This is what success looks like in the reprographic Industry. Follow the leaders, follow Repro Products, and follow the RSA!
