COMPANY BACKGROUND & HISTORY


Keneal Graphic Solutions, Inc was formed as an Illinois Corporation as of June 30, 1980. The corporation purchased the assets, name, trademarks, etc. of Trading Stamp Manufacturing and Labels and Tapes.

The corporate name is a combination of portions of my two sons' names--Kent and Neal.

Our early years consisted of manufacturing exactly as was stated; Trading Stamps, and the saver books and/or sheets to paste them in and assorted pressure sensitive labels for the grocery and bakery industries.  While we still do some trading stamps, most of that business has disappeared over time.  We now concentrate on specialty printing.

Today specialty printing, in regards to Keneal, means various, out of the ordinary and relatively unique items.  These include labels, forms, bar coding (printers, ribbons, and blank labels), sequential numbering, crash numbering, digital duplicating, gummed and plastic adhesive tapes, tamper proof labels, plastic barrel, pail and bottle sleeves, and direct thermal and thermal transfer labels.  We have over 200 assorted die shapes including rectangles, squares, circles, ovals, special shapes, butt cutters, sheeters, and perforators. Keneal also provides “standard” printing such as business cards, letterhead, envelopes, brochures, flyers, catalogs, scratch pads, carbonless forms, folding, stapling, collating and die cutting.

In late 1993, Keneal started its embroidery division, Cassells’ Custom Embroidery.  A contract embroiderer performing direct embroidery on a variety of items including shirts, jackets, caps, towels, bags, blankets, and aprons.  The garments are often furnished, however we work with all of the top suppliers and do purchase garments for our customers use.  We have 18 multicolor embroidery heads and handle orders from a minimum of 12 pieces to orders of 5,000 or more pieces.
   
In early 2004, Keneal started its newest division, HM Pak.  Our specialization in this division is as a Contract Re-Packaging facility.  Not only do we offer re-packaging, but we also have the ability to produce end cap displays and kit displays, as well as assembly work.  We have devoted a majority of our building to housing this facet of our company.

At the outset of 2004 the company decided to try and incorporate all of the things we do here in Romeoville and come up with one company name to describe our business. We took Keneal Graphic Solutions, CCE and HM Pak and came up with our current company name - Keneal Graphic Solutions. We believe we can be your Solution. Feel free to give Keneal a call the next time your needs and our capabilities match.
