About Chronicle Printing
The Chronicle Print Division began to outgrow our facilities (due to increased business and large projects) at the historic Chronicle building, located at 321 N. Pearl Street, in downtown Centralia.
After a lengthy and exhaustive search, which included help from community members and city, county and Port of Centralia officials, a building was located at 3802 Galvin Road in the Port of Centralia.
This move allowed all the departments related to production: presses for both our web printing and sheet fed printing (formerly known as Print Pro) and supporting equipment and technology, inserting equipment, some pre-press work and the packaging operations to relocate from it’s current space of about 12,000 sq. ft., to a space that was more than double in size, and with more adequate facilities, sizing up at about 29,000 sq. ft.
Beginning in October of 2003, about 35 full-time staff began the process of relocating machines and infrastructure for the new print facility. The move also opened the door for more than 30 positions to be created and filled at the new facility.
The state-of-the art facility opened on January 1, 2004 and boasts some of the top technology in the Southwest Washington region. The Chronicle Print Facility prints The Chronicle, The Nisqually Valley News, The Reflector, Southwest Washington Family Magazine, The Aberdeen Daily World, The Vidette and many, many more affiliated publications each month.
Our technology also includes the latest in cost-effective printing for sheetfed and web press, giving our business clients, organizations and individuals more options for affordable, quality printing.
We are proud of our facility and our staff is like a second family to many. We take pride in the products we create and produce — and we can’t wait to impress you with the results.
