The BBB of Toledo has selected Metzgers Printing & Mailing as a recipient of the 2013 Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics. The award was presented to Tom Metzger at a special recognition banquet on November 6th.
In his acceptance speech on behalf of Team Metzgers, Tom Metzger shared the story of his father and company founder, Norb Metzger. "My dad operated business on a handshake, and his handshake was as good as gold. Today long contracts and complex legal documents can build a sense of distrust in business, yet we still want to do business on a handshake whenever possible. If we say it will be this price, and it will be delivered at that time... it will."
Innovation and integrity were cornerstones of business for Metzgers at its inception. Today, management and employees build upon those same core values, holding themselves to the highest standards as the company continues to grow and expand.
Metzgers was founded in 1976 as a type house. The family business now provides offset & digital printing, mailing & fulfillment, promotional products & wearables, wide format signage, displays, and point of purchase graphics, as well as extensive warehouse & distribution services, cross-media services and custom eStorefront solutions.
With over 100 employees—including more than 35 with ten years of service or more—Metzgers prides itself on innovation, curiosity, and learning, as shown by the Metzgers Education Center housed in one of three expansive buildings. The Metzgers campus on Arco Drive in Toledo totals over 125,000 square feet of office, lab, and warehouse space.
Metzgers supports local, regional and national charity organizations including the American Cancer Society, Foundation for Life, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, University of Toledo Foundation, and many others.
