Founded by Peter P. Cappas in 1963, United Engravers has strong roots in the Chicagoland corrugated market.  By 1990, we settled into our current headquarters in Schaumburg, IL, after outgrowing a series of smaller locations.  Additional expansion in 2006 sent our front office into an adjoining building, and made room for larger equipment in production. We operate a satellite art studio in Michigan, and have team members on-site as needed across the United States.

Today, United Engravers is led by President Peter C. Cappas and Vice-President Terry Cappas. The Cappas family’s philosophy of continuous improvement has made us an industry leader; United Engravers is a small company with a big reputation as an innovator in corrugated printing plate manufacturing.
