What’s the secret? Not some brilliant formula, but rather, a mix of people, places and things.
Since Hygrade Business Group opened its doors as a conventional stationery printer on Canal Street in New York City 100 years ago, the print industry has undergone numerous changes – most notably disruptive technology has evolving customer needs and production techniques. Hygrade has met these challenges head on, transitioning into one of the most technologically advanced forms printers in the Northeast.

Their strategic alliances and network of affiliated manufacturing facilities create a worldclass manufacturing and distribution network that is national in scope, and services healthcare organizations, the financial services industry, as well as the general business community.
According to Vic Albetta, CEO of Hygrade Business Group, “There are not a lot of companies that have survived to celebrate their 100th anniversary; and considering the disruptive technological society we live in today, there will certainly be fewer in the future. What’s the secret? Not some brilliant formula, but rather, a mix of people, places and things. It is with supreme gratitude that Hygrade’s Board of Directors and Management thank the talented employees and their commitment that got us here through the years.”
As an industry leader, Hygrade’s mission is threefold: first, to provide superior services and solutions for print management, business, and marketing; second, to develop a comprehensive understanding of each client’s business and needs to ensure their utmost satisfaction; and third, to demonstrate uncompromising commitment to excellence, reflected in its unique process that integrates information, imagination, initiative, and integrity.
We are extremely proud of our accomplishments and feel very fortunate to have served our clients well and excelled in an industry that has significantly evolved over the past decades. This momentous anniversary is a testament to the company’s management team that has made the changes necessary to thrive where others have failed. The print and promotional products is intensely competitive, and our success reflects our focus on service to our customers. As we move forward, we will strive to continue this tradition as we add products and services that bring value and help our customers succeed in achieving their goals,” states Phil Cantore, Senior VP Sales and Marketing.
