I’m privileged to work with a group of energetic people with an incredible wealth of experience in the commercial printing industry. The skilled management team that steers The Flesh Company is one of our strongest assets and I think you’ll be interested to know a bit about the individual expertise of the people that stand behind our custom print solutions.- Roy V. Flesh II
Roy is proud to be the third generation leader of the company, which was founded by his grandfather in 1913. He literally grew up in the print business, and runs the company on the principles of outstanding customer service, constant leadership in technology and product innovation, and a heartfelt commitment to stand behind every order the company produces. The Flesh Company has always been a trade-only manufacturer, and no one understands the needs of our distributors and their customers better than Roy. He is known in the industry as a man of integrity, and insists that his company continuously earns that same reputation. Over half a century ago, Roy’s father was a founder of the National Business Forms Association (now called the PSDA), and Roy has continued the tradition of dedicated commitment to this and other important print trade associations. One of the most knowledgeable experts in our industry, Roy has successfully carried on the tradition of innovation, company integrity and growth in the marketplace. When his hectic schedule affords him some free time, Roy enjoys golfing, travelling and spending time with his family.
