A Note From Marty Ochs
As we continue taking our tour of the Ashwaubenon industrial areas, we are amazed at the concentration of companies that were created from the Paper Industry and are very dependent on it. Ashwaubenon has some impressive printing companies, including Legacy Flexo and Vibrant Impressions.
RRD Direct Marketing, Ashwaubenon, is one of the largest direct marketing facilities in the US. Take a look at the photos below which represent the vibrant business community in Ashwaubenon.
