In 1997, International Speed Print, Inc., (ISPI) 1 was a $7 billion Fortune 100 corporation with a 134-year history. The company operated 55 print plants with 34,000 employees located around the world. ISPI dominated the printing market with sales greater than its next largest nine competitors combined. The company’s 4000 clients included Simon-Schuster, ITP, McGraw-Hill, Time Magazine, Reader’s Digest, Microsoft and many others. ISPI had print operations in China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Ireland, the U.K., Holland, Spain, Poland, and 40 plants in the U.S. The plants in Japan and China printed the Far East version of Microsoft Windows user manuals. Although it had clearly survived and thrived through many decades, the company was now facing new challenges.
