Catalina Graphic Films is proud to announce the company’s 45th Anniversary of its founding. Celebrating over 45 years in the graphic arts and print industry, Catalina Graphic Films is the premier custom coater of Pressure Sensitive materials for the Digital, Offset, Screen, Industrial and Specialty markets.
Founded in 1968 as Catalina Plastic Suppliers, Inc., Catalina started business as a distributor of non-pressure sensitive plastic sheets and films. In 1972, the Company purchased its first pressure-sensitive adhesive coating line and became Catalina Plastics and Coating. The core business became the distribution of pressure sensitive coated plastics and films printed by offset and screen processes.
Eventually, Catalina Plastics and Coating was officially renamed to Catalina Graphic Films to more accurately reflect the Company’s current focus and direction. Jeff Dworman, Chief Executive Officer, states, “Our history and success have evolved into an operation which is guided by our mission to value relationships with only the highest quality suppliers to meet increased company and customer requirements. The 2011 merger of Graphic Materials International (G.M.I.), our sister company, shows Catalina’s commitment to furthering its investments in equipment, technology and processes to enable our customers with high value application solutions for an ever changing market.”
Today, the Company’s products are used in a wide variety of niche applications printed by almost all disciplines including digital, screen, offset, flexo and gravure. With headquarters in Calabasas Hills, California, Catalina Graphic Films provides sales and support with offices located throughout the continental US in Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas, Dallas & Philadelphia and manufacturing in Las Vegas.
