Strategic Factory has announced its 25th anniversary. The company will commemorate the milestone thanking the local community and its clients with a celebratory event and a philanthropic initiative that will give back to 25 local charitable organizations.

Recognized today as a single-point provider for printing, signage, promotional products, branded apparel, and marketing agency services, Strategic Factory launched in 1999 as a small business with an ambitious founder. President and CEO Keith Miller immigrated to the United States and began Strategic Factory’s journey from humble beginnings with a tiny, two-person print shop. Now, 25 years later, the company stands with more than 150 employees and 100,000 square feet of production space split between three facilities in Owings Mills, Maryland.

“We have a lot to celebrate,” said Shannon Romeo, chief impact officer. “As a proud, Maryland-based business committed to the continued growth of our surrounding community, we plan to celebrate our 25th anniversary by partnering with 25 nonprofit and charitable organizations on various initiatives and fundraisers over the next year. And to celebrate all of our cherished clients, partners, friends, and family, we will be bringing back everyone’s favorite ‘Strategic Fest’ event with a save-the-date announcement coming soon.”

The company attributes its longevity and success to a dedicated team of professionals, loyal customers, supportive community, and strategic acquisitions and partnerships that have played crucial roles in its growth.

Over the past 25 years, Strategic Factory has expanded solutions beyond commercial printing to include signage, mailing, branded apparel, creative and design services, a full-service marketing agency, promotional products, kitting and fulfillment, inventory management, and more through multiple mergers and acquisitions to create the diversified brand you know today.

With these additional solutions and a talented team of industry experts, Strategic Factory states it has been able to better serve its clients and capture major partnerships with brand names like the Baltimore Ravens, CFG Bank Arena, the Washington Capitals, Maryland University, and several other professional sports teams and universities.

“It seems like just yesterday I started this venture and now years have flown by and Strategic Factory has expanded far beyond what I could have ever imagined,” remarked Miller. “I’m constantly reminded of the community that has embraced my business. To the clients who have been with us over the years, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your trust, support, and commitment have been instrumental to our success and motivated us to continuously raise the bar. I can’t wait to celebrate all of you at ‘Strategic Fest.’ Having seen what the last 25 years has brought us, I can’t wait to see what the next 25 years have in store.”
