Our History
Colortech, Inc., founded in 1980 by current owner Patrick “Pat” Sullivan and three partners, initially operated as a graphic arts trade shop handling pre-press color separations and plate prep work. Soon after the company’s start up, Patrick ”Rick” Sullivan joined Colortech, learning the necessary skills and trade practices of the graphics arts/print industry. As the company business steadily grew, so did Colortech’s pre-press capabilities, which led to the introduction of print services in 1985.

1996 was a pivotal year—The Sullivans’ became sole owners of Colortech and Patrick “Rick” Sullivan was installed as president. Under their leadership, the company identified new opportunities to add to the list of existing services and product capabilities. To date, graphic design services, large format digital proofing systems, variable data technology, digital printing capabilities, multiple commercial presses, additional bindery services, mailing capabilities, and fulfillment have been integrated into the workflow at Colortech.

Simultaneous to our capabilities growth, our client list has also experienced significant increases—reaching key markets in food, publishing, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, and transportation. All of this growth through opportunity was created by the inception of a small, four-man trade shop just starting out in 1980.
