Spectra Color Corporation was founded in April of 1990 and is a privately held corporation. The company founders are Ronald F. DeSanto Jr. And Paul J. Laz. Mr. DeSanto and Mr. Laz combined their extensive expertise in the ink and banking industry to establish the company.
Spectra Color Corporation entered the Graphic Arts manufacturing business producing Paste Inks such as; Heatset, Sheetfed, Cold Set, Gloss/Dull Overprint Varnish, Fluorescent and Magnetic Black.
The company opened its doors in 19, 000 square foot plant in Downers Grove, Illinois, with a hand full of employees, servicing the Chicago land area. By 1992, the company had expanded its market to reach, from coast to coast.
In 1995 after extensive research into the growth of the Flexo Graphic and Gravure Ink Industry, Spectra Color Corporation made a commitment to enter this fast growing market. This division now produces water based inks servicing mainly the Specialty Packaging Field. Sales have grown steadily partly as a result of pressure by the E.P.A. On printers to reduce the amount of V.O.C.'s that they emit into the atmosphere.
In 1998 as part of our strategic plan to further grow and diversify Spectra Color Corporation has stepped into the UV Screen Print market. Our product lines have been well received and we are experiencing stable growth in this new endeavor. As in all our products we are always looking for ways to be innovative and responsive to our customers needs.
In 2001, responding to the growth of our customer base in eastern United States, a decision was made to expand our operations. A search was made to find a location that would give us the ability to service these customers and also enable further growth potential. We decided to open our Eastern Branch at 2000 Cabot Blvd., in Langhorne, Pennsylvania.
In late 2002, as a realization of a need for more room to operate and after an extensive investigation of the status of the commercial real estate market, we started looking for a new location of our Corporate Headquarters. In May 2003, we made the move lock, stock and barrel to our new 42, 000 square foot facility at 615 N. Enterprise Street, Aurora, Illinois. This facility will enable us to service our customers more efficiently and enable us to manage further growth
