Highway Printing – Lifetime Achievement Award
The Highway Printing Company was first established by Paul and Edith Lehman back in 1943. At that time it was located on Route 17 North in Paramus, New Jersey and was the only commercial printing business in the area. Over the years as the business grew successful, every member of the family, which included Paul & Edith’s children Paul Jr., Nancy and Danny became part of the team serving customers’ needs.
With a love for and a permanent move to the Hudson Valley the Lehman Family opened a branch of Highway Printing in Florida, New York in 1973. While Paul Jr. remained in Paramus and handled that operation, Paul Sr. and Edith took the helm at the shop in Florida, NY assisted by their daughter Nancy and son Danny.
For the past twenty fiveyears the business has been owned and operated by Danny and his wife Pamela who continued to carry on the family’s long time commitment to providing quality service and work. Whatever the need was, this friendly print shop was ready to help from ideas and designs to the final printing. It didn’t matter if it was for orders that were large or small — they were both given the same careful attention. Service, accuracy and price were important. Highway has enjoyed being a part of the Florida community for the last almost 40 years. Giving back to the community has always been important to the Lehman Family. Over the years they have been involved with and generously supported the many local civic and social organizations in the community. Help and support on a personal level given to businesses and individuals who were in need that was offered in particular by Danny Lehman was very often done quietly and behind the scenes.
This year our Highway Printing business is coming to a close and clearly the daily activity and the wonderful people of this community will be missed but will always be held dear in our hearts. For the best part of doing business with our customers is that you became our friends and we were privileged to share in your personal triumphs and root for you in your challenges. We wish the best of everything for the people of the Florida community. Thank you for giving us your business and your loyal support over so many years. Thank you for allowing us to serve you; it was truly our pleasure to do so. – The Lehman Family
