Frederick Paul Horak’s original vision was to use new technology to help businesses prosper. Today, as a third-generation company, we carry on his legacy by continuously updating our services to stay ahead of the curve.
What we do
The F.P. Horak Company is a full-service print and marketing solutions company with two locations in Bay City, Michigan. Our clients include Fortune 500 businesses and other companies across the Midwest (and the rest of the world).
And while we offer a wide variety of services, we prefer to focus instead on what we actually accomplish for our customers. More revenue. Lower costs. A stronger bottom line.
In 1946, Frederick Paul (“F.P.”) Horak returned to Bay City after fighting in World War II. Equipped with a civil engineering degree from Penn State and experience with the most advanced business systems of the time, he established The F.P. Horak Company in the basement of his house in Bay City.
As the printing and furniture manufacturing business outgrew his home, F.P. Horak moved it to Broadway Avenue in 1953. In 1968, Horak’s son, Frederick (“Fritz”) W. Horak, and Fritz’s brother-in-law, Guy Jeffrey, purchased the company and eventually moved it to a larger, more prominent location in downtown Bay City.
By the early 1990s, The F.P. Horak Company was well-positioned to exploit the burgeoning digital revolution. The state-of-the-art Digital Imaging Center was built to accommodate explosive growth in digital printing, mailing, and fulfillment services.
As technological trends have ebbed, The F.P. Horak Company has remained a regional leader. Our success has never been about a single service or product but instead is due to our philosophy of evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of our clients.
