Swift was founded in 1950 by Walter D. Gutowski, Sr. and his wife, Lorraine. Walt Sr. began his printing career at the age of 19 working with the Pantlind Hotel in downtown Grand Rapids. Beginning as a pressman he moved his way up to an Operations Manager. After serving in the military for several years, he returned to work at Ellinger Printing where he honed his printing skills. Realizing he wanted to start his own printing shop, Walt Sr. bought the assets of a print shop that was closing in Muskegon; this acquisition soon became the Swift Printing Company. In 1954 Swift moved to its current headquarters located on Bridge Street. Walt Sr. has been the heart and soul of our company, instilling his amazing work ethic and never wavering commitment to our customer. He continues to inspire the Swift team to this day.
Swift Printing Company was officially born on January 1, 1950. From the beginning, Swift has been devoted to three main tenets:
1. Content, well-cared-for employees.
2. Outstanding, solution-oriented service, with an emphasis on providing products in a timely manner.
3. Being a leader in printing technology.
We believe these three tenets are crucial to providing the level of service our customers deserve.
