Inception Story of 3A Press
3A Press Corp is a family owned and minority certified company. This family tradition of printing excellence goes back to 1948 when Victor Angel Rosado founded the first printing company of the Rosado family, Imprenta Rosado. It was in 1979 that second generation Mr. Alexis Rosado took the responsibility of the company and incorporated it into Insertco in 1982. Alexis took the company to a newer height of success which continued until 1995 when it was sold. Next year in 1996, the third generation of Rosado, Marie and Alex, found a niche within the Life Sciences Industry to supply Instruction for Use literature (inserts and booklets) as well as a need within the industry for a reliable local/minority owned packaging supplier. Thus, 22 years ago in April 23rd 1996 3A Press was born.

Future Prospects of 3A Press

The internet, globalization, digital printing, personalized medications among others are changing the way of doing business. The company understands that from its line of services, inserts and manuals will eventually decrease and folding cartons will continue to grow.
“In light of the above realities the major investments have been in our Folding Cartons division with the acquisition of a recent acquisition of a second XL Press. This one is a XL 106-7 + L Heidelberg Press — the most advanced press in the Caribbean. Also a brand new Expertcut 106 PER 3.0 Bobsts Blanket Die Cutter. We are also exploring other printing technologies to increase our line of product and services”, Alex concludes.
