Let’s join Cindy Livingston in celebrating 35 years with Allied Printing Services!

Cindy was destined to be in our industry, like her parents Rudy and Carlene, they too worked in printing. As a young girl, Cindy would accompany her father to work on weekends, where she got her first impression of printing.

Apparently, she really liked printing! Cindy was hired by John Sommers, Sr. as a folder operator in 1984. Throughout her years with Allied, she also worked as a pocket folder operator until being promoted to a supervisory position in 2004. Cindy is extremely knowledgeable in that position, and that knowledge and her ability to “get the job done” make her an integral part of the finishing process. Always approachable and willing to help, Cindy’s experience and her organizational skills allow her to oversee a multitude of jobs in different stages and to handle all of them with ease. She has been Hand Bindery Supervisor for years now, earning the Circle of Excellence Award in 2008 and 2013.

Congratulations to Cindy on a great 35 years! #thealliedway

Al Violette, first shift Maintenance, has retired from Allied Printing Services after working with us for over 26 years. He was first introduced to the Sommers family while working as Superintendent for a contractor, who was hired for several Allied construction projects. Al's talent as a builder was noticed by both John F. Sommers, our founder, and his son, John G. Sommers, Sr.

Al started in our Shipping department on third shift where he was responsible for shrink wrapping packages (by hand) for shipment the next day. A year and a half later he moved to the Maintenance department, where he has been Assistant Supervisor ever since.

Al has many fond memories with one that stands out. On a Friday night many years ago, a bin of cleaning rags caught on fire. Al came in from vacation, hired a specialized cleaning company, and with the help of fellow employees, had the plant back in shape and running on Monday morning.

What we will remember most though, is Al's magical ability to build anything. He's done an excellent job with every construction project that he was assigned, no matter how complex. Not only could he be counted on to keep our parking lots clear of snow and ice all winter with our on-site payloader, but he was also a great mentor to our part-time summer interns, teaching them both indoor and outdoor maintenance skills. Al will miss the good people that work at Allied Printing most of all! He plans on playing plenty of golf in his retirement, a game he truly enjoys, especially in a foursome with his three brothers.

Congratulations, Al - we all wish you well in your new adventures!
