About Independent Printing

We trace our roots back to 1910 as the "job shop" for the Independent news paper in Richmond, California. In 1924, the print shop was incorporated as a separate business with Charles Brombacher as co-owner and manager. In 1944, the firm became Independent Printing Company, and in 1952 Kurt's father, Elton Brombacher, became the sole owner. Today, IPCO remains a family-owned enterprise, dedicated to providing high quality printing services to nationwide accounts. From our headquarters in Martinez, California and plant in Ashland, Oregon, IPCO provides a wide variety of products, from annual reports to sophisticated packaging and point-of-sale materials.
Owner Kurt Brombacher and his daughter Lisa Olson are the third and fourth generations to run IPCO.
The company was founded by Kurt's grandfather, Charles Brombacher.
