Brian Greer started his manufacturing career in 1990 as a catcher/packer/feeder. He learned to operate and perform maintenance on formers and straight line folding carton machines at a large QSR and Food Service Company.  He worked in the finishing department for several years before moving into the printing department working on both Flexographic and Gravure presses. During this time, he began to learn about dies. When an opportunity presented itself, he moved into the die room and worked on preparing counters and re-knifing intricate dies for folding cartons and cups.

In 1998, his company made their first leap into the world of short run jobs. In order to do this they brought in a narrow web Flexo press. Brian was asked to take on the responsibility become one of the first operators. Most importantly, he set standard operating procedures that are still used today and are instrumental in making short run narrow web a successful department.

In 2000, Ed Bernier asked Brian Greer to run Computer to Plate equipment that would be installed to expand the Digital Graphics Division. He jumped at the opportunity to get in during the infancy stage of an emerging new technology and became the first in house plate maker in the newly created division. Today Brian works with ESKO graphic programs as a Prepress Operator and Manager. In addition, he works with customers to provide expert consulting in printing, die cutting and plate making.
