ColorDynamics was founded in 1922
as Argus Press by Joseph P. Leach in a small store on the north
side of Chicago. It had a small amount of type, two 10 x 15
hand-fed presses, and a hand-powered cutter. The company then
moved to a basement a short distance from the original site.
New equipment was purchased and the work force of four people
began to grow.
Argus struggled through the depression. Employees
worked when a job came in, and then went home to wait for
the next call, the next job. Gradually they gained solid
customer loyalty with such accounts as U. S. Gypsum and A.
C. Nielson, the television ratings company. In time the presses
were rolling, never to stop.
As an extension of Argus, on May 22, 1986 ColorDynamics
opened its doors in Allen, Texas. It had three presses and
28 employees. Today, under the leadership of Chuck Chalifoux
and a talented management group, ColorDynamics employs more
than 200 people. It has in-house pre-press image manipulation
technology as well as 3 web presses and 4 sheetfed presses.
