- CEO - Sales - I have been in the business forms industry for
43 years, spending the first 31 years with Northstar Computer Forms. In
1995, my wife Betty Lou and I decided to try it on our own. We were fortunate
to have our son, Scott, join us in this venture. In addition, we were
fortunate to be able to hire a great staff that worked hard and endeavored
in developing a quality product. During the past 11 years, we have kept
up with technology by adding a state-of-the-art digital prepress system,
which allows us to plate directly from your electronic file, and produce
contract-quality, 8-color digital proofs. We've added printing towers
to our presses and added UV drying so that we can print high quality ink
colors in perfect register, even on coated papers. We have also enhanced
our bindery to lead us more to the commercial printing part of our industry.
Riteway has evolved into a nice business, of which I am very proud. The
greatest assets to our growth have been our awareness of our customers
requiring a quality product and our giving customers a sense that we would
deliver their orders on time and done correctly. Our dedication has always
been to our customers, and will remain as we continue to grow. Unfortunately,
I lost my wife Betty Lou in March of 2006, but I am proud to say I still
have Scott working with me, and my daughter, Kim, has joined us as well.
I also have a dedicated staff, which ensures that our customers can rely
on us. I've enjoyed Riteway Business Forms and will continue to enjoy
it for the foreseeable future.

Jim purchased PegBoard Systems in 1980 and had been in business for 30 years. In 1985 he was elected to the board of directors for NBS Systems and served as chairman for 12 years.

It was important to him that Riteway is 100% distributor and print industry sales. “It means a lot when I can tell a dealer or printer that Riteway will never attempt to sell direct to their customers”.
