Niagara Gazette — A Niagara advertising and marketing company has moved to the northern edge of Grand Island where it has expanded its facilities, fortified staff and, coincidentally, just won a coveted award for its work.

Compu-Mail, formerly part of NTS Data Services on Military Road, also located on Inducon Drive in Sanborn, this past week completed a four-month move to 3235 Grand Island Boulevard on Grand Island, a facility with more than 40,000 square feet of space. 

The new building allows Compu-Mail to house its rapidly growing print and mail operations in one location. The new facility also includes a postal sub-station operated by the United States Postal Service to manage the high volume of mail sent through Compu-Mail on behalf of clients.

The business, which employees about 100 people and handles about 10 million pieces of paper a month, is looking to grow, according to Michael Vitch, Compu-Mail president.

”Right now we have two shifts, five days a week. We’d like to go up to a full 24 hours,” said Vitch. 

In an effort to respond to changes in the marketing industry, Compu-mail has also hired Karen Renzi as director of marketing. Renzi, a specialist in social media specialist and founder of Beyondus Design and Marketing in Youngstown, will be leading the company’s marketing campaign.

”In addition to expanding our print productions and mailing operations, we’re also looking to achieve growth through digital media,” Renzi said, adding that she will also be available to counsel customers on social media.

Printing Industries of America recently selected Compu-Mail’s 2012 Charity Connection campaign for the Best of Category Premier Print Award, in the campaign category. This award is the top honor in the international print competition. Best of Category winners are presented with a bronze statuette of Benjamin Franklin, the “Benny.” Compu-Mail also received two Awards of Recognition, the second highest honor in the competition, in the categories of Calendars; and Direct Mail Campaigns, Business-to-Business.

Compu-Mail will be presented with the Benny statue at the Premier Print Awards Gala on Sunday, Oct. 7 at the Chicago Marriott.
