Founded in 1949, Serigraph was started by Alfred F. Ramsthal when he quit his full-time job and launched his business out of his own garage. After successfully producing his first product, (glow-in-the-dark nursery characters) Ramsthal moved his printing operations from his small garage to a larger house. In 1955, Ramsthal obtained his first order for farming equipment decals with the Gehl Company and with the success of this account, Ramsthal was able to construct his very first manufacturing plant in West Bend, WI. The success of working with the Gehl Company afforded Ramsthal to purchase a letter press and lithographic operations. This opened the door to Ramsthal receiving his first plastic printing job making styrene clock dials for Sunbeam. From here, Serigraph launched as a major player into the printing business.
Over the last 70 years, Serigraph has expanded its growth and technologies. Our core business is in printing, but Serigraph is more than just a printing company. We have pioneered ink processes and have invested in high quality printing, die cutting, thermoforming and injection molding presses.
With a total of four plants in WI, Serigraph has become a leader in decorative graphics serving the appliance, automotive, consumer electronics, medical, industrial, powersports, and point of purchase markets. By providing innovative, eye-catching print effects, Serigraph enables companies to differentiate their brands and stand out at the point of decision.
When you work with us, you have a team of designers, engineers and fulfillment experts who care just as much about the success of your project as you do.
