A Message From Our CEO

It is an honor to be celebrating RRD’s 160th anniversary in 2024. Our tagline for the celebration is Innovation & Excellence Since 1864.

We intentionally chose the words innovation and excellence to mark this occasion. As we reflect on RRD’s history, innovation is the change — it’s what has kept RRD growing and evolving for well over a century. And, excellence is the constant — it’s what is woven through the fibers of our organization and the way our people approach everything we do.

Thank you for being part of RRD’s 160-year journey from a local print operation to a global provider of marketing, packaging, print, and supply chain solutions. Please join us in celebrating RRD’s past, present, and future during our 160th anniversary.
