The roots of Promedia Printers go way back. Peter Fairbrother began his printing career in the 1940s in England. He worked his way up the ladder and his way to the United States where he became District Manager for Addressograph-Multigraph in Los Angeles, California. As the offset printing revolution overtook the letterpress, Peter looked for qualified technicians to grow the business. He found Victor Gelfo, a nineteen-year-old nephew who was in college pursuing a degree in electronics engineering.
Victor joined Peter in the printing industry while continuing college at night for six years. After college, Victor started his first printshop where he printed flyers, booklets and forms for local businesses in the San Fernando Valley. Later he joined Warner Bros. Graphic Services where he worked for years until he was offered a position as General Manager at a struggling shop in Los Angeles. He used his expertise to streamline the shop and increase its capabilities to include digital printing and four-color process printing. The shop rapidly grew from 5 employees to 22 employees with over 2 million dollars in sales. In 1998 he was approached again and challenged to create a new shop specializing in trade printing, and Promedia Printers was born October 1, 1998. Victor now runs Promedia Printers with two of his finest pressmen from Warner Bros: Victor Mirassou and Raul Tovar.
