It is the ultimate family-owned business - currently on its third family. As its name suggests, the business was started by the Zimmer family in 1897. John Zimmer and his brother operated it.
Tobias Provan, began working around the printing business as early as age 10, sweeping the floors. By the time he became a teenager, Tobias was given more responsibilities in the printing business. And when his father became ill, he took a more active role in the company.
"When dad was on dialysis, I would open up the place until he came in the afternoon," Provan said. "When he passed away, I started managing the business."
Tobias’s mother, Carol Provan, owns the business and does the bookkeeping. A brother, Nathanael, runs one of the presses. But Tobias manages the day-to-day operations.
