WHO WE ARE
Our extensive history illustrates our evolution from humble beginnings to North America’s premier catalog solutions provider. We have customer relationships dating back to day one, which is a true testament to our ability to deliver expert marketing solutions.
Today, Arandell continues to be a leader in the industry because we know that connecting brands with their customers goes beyond printing. Beyond mailing. Beyond a simple handshake. And beyond a mere vendor. We go beyond expectations because that’s what our customers expect from us.
We understood long ago that being a good neighbor is good business. Arandell is at the forefront of sustainable methods of printing and continues to be proactive in conserving resources and protecting the environment.
We partner with programs to reduce our impact on the environment through sustainability practices in our facility and in transit. In addition to these partnerships, Arandell is certified to three of the world’s most distinguished forest management programs: the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) and the Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification™ (PEFC™).
These forestry certifications are only awarded after an intense third-party audit of our purchasing behavior and environmental practices. For more information on Arandell’s Procurement Policy download the PDF below.
Through every step in the printing process, Arandell makes an effort to utilize eco-friendly materials and safeguard the environment in our production. We use water-based inks for inkjetting and practice smart material purchasing to minimize waste and eliminate spoilage resulting from unused materials.
Waste paper from all of our presses is recycled on-site and then sent for conversion into recycled paper products. From paper roll cores to plastic manufacturing bands, we work with our suppliers and associations to recycle everything we can in an effort to support the environment.
As the world continues to change, Arandell has its eyes set on the future in order to innovate our processes and remain a steward for our environment. We believe it’s our responsibility to protect the forests and waterways of our Wisconsin home and our world as a whole.
Our evolving Environmental Management System makes certain that we are being eco-conscious throughout all of Arandell and that we will continue to surpass expectations for the future.
As a leader in the print and catalog industry, Arandell is proud to take an active role in a number of industry organizations & committees. Our involvement ensures that we are not only staying up to date on relevant trends, but also acting as champions for our customers with key decision makers. We also believe strongly in the growth of our employees and are involved with organizations that help our team members reach their goals.
Arandell believes in giving back. Listed below are just a few of the many organizations with which we are actively involved. We’re proud of our associates’ involvement with community organizations such as Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and United Way and will continue to support the organizations they show an interest in in any way we can. Over the years, we have come to know and work with many inspiring organizations in Menomonee Falls, the Greater Milwaukee Area and beyond, and will continue to be a part of this community for decades to come.
