WebbMason Debuts on Tampa Bay Business Journal List of 25 Largest Commercial Printers

December 9, 2013

By Mark Smith, Vice President of Sales, Florida

As the executive in charge of sales and operations in Florida, I am thrilled that WebbMason recently debuted on the Tampa Bay Business Journal List of 25 Largest Commercial Printers in the Tampa area. More than 90 companies were surveyed for the annual feature that ranks commercial printers by number of full-time employees working in Tampa area offices. Ranking among the top 25 employers in the Tampa commercial printing community is an important milestone and honor for WebbMason. Attracting and retaining clients requires a talented team that represents our company well, from sales through delivery and every step in between. Making this list is a validation of WebbMason’s values and value.Tampa Bay Business Journal

WebbMason has experienced steady growth since opening our Largo office in 2006. We have expanded our presence to include a 10,000 sq. ft. climate controlled distribution center where we offer warehousing and kitting and assembly services. We count among our clients some of the most best known companies in the Tampa area. These include Bloomin’ Brands, one of the world’s largest casual dining companies and whose portfolio of companies include Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, and Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar; PODS Enterprises, Inc., which revolutionized the moving and storage business with its self-service container service; financial services giant, Raymond James; and, World of Beer, an operator of 50 beer-centric taverns in 14 states. If you believe, as I do, that you are known by the company you keep, I’d say WebbMason has established itself as an integral part of the local business community.

WebbMason’s broad range of services is a major differentiator and a primary reason for the company’s success. The scope and quality of our offerings is why more than 1,200 clients in healthcare, hospitality, financial services, manufacturing, technology and other major industries have selected us for printing and a full range of multichannel offline and digital marketing services, including copywriting, graphic design, brand identity, web design and development, search engine marketing/search engine optimization, email marketing, social media management, promotional items, and tradeshow provisioning and support.

Clients choose and stay with us in no small part because of our dedicated, skilled people. WebbMason looks forward to continued business growth in Tampa and throughout Florida.



A Second Helping of Thanksgiving

By Doug Traxler, Chief Development Officer and Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing

I am fresh from a long Thanksgiving weekend spent with family and friends, and hope that you also enjoyed time with people you care about. The WebbMason team continues to give thanks this morning. I am not just referring to the leftover turkey sandwiches many of us packed for lunch today. We are starting the new week with some great news: WebbMason once again topped the charts of Print Solutions magazine’s annual Leading Distributors issue in several categories based on 2012 revenue. Print Solutions is published by the Print Services and Distribution Association (PSDA), an industry group whose members comprise a broad network of supply chain partners representing approximately 1,000 companies with more than $5 billion in combined annual sales. In other words, PSDA represents the best of the best in the commercial printing and marketing services industry.

WebbMason placed first in the Commercial Printing category and is the second largest distributor across all categories. WebbMason also finished among the Top 10 in the Marketing and Creative Services and Technology Services categories. You can access the 2013 Leading Distributors issue of Print Solutions here.

Among all PSDA members nationwide, WebbMason is the:

– #1 Seller of Commercial Printing
Print Solutions Aug 13 cover

– #2 Distributor across all categories

– #2 Seller of Direct Mail

– #2 Seller of Labels and Tags

– #2 Seller of Promotional Products

– #2 Seller of Traditional Products

– #5 Seller of Marketing and Creative Services

– #9 Seller of Technology Services

WebbMason is proud to once again secure sales leadership positions in every applicable category. Given the number and quality of fellow PSDA members considered for the annual survey, WebbMason’s performance is a significant accomplishment. Our success is the result of hard work from every member of the WebbMason team; clients who truly partner with us; and our commitment to innovation in services, products and technology.

WebbMason’s investments over the past several years succeeded in transforming the company into a complete marketing services and technology provider. Interactive services and our marketing management software – MarketingBench – are WebbMason’s fastest growing offerings. Adoption by traditional print and promo clients has been terrific. We are their comprehensive, multichannel marketing resource. And interactive services such as web design and development have been a major point of entry for new clients.

In closing, if you are a WebbMason client, thank you for your business; if you are a colleague, thank you for your contributions; if you are a partner, thank you for helping us become the top distributor in the country. And thanks to everyone for reading.
