Guiding Principles

One of Pittsburgh’s oldest printing companies, Trust-Franklin Press was founded in 1908 as Trust Printing Company, launched by Simon and Ralph Trust.

In 1947, Milton Friedman bought the company and added “Franklin” to the name in tribute to Benjamin Franklin. Milton built the business through hard work and attention to customer satisfaction.

In 1980, Milton’s son, Gary, joined the company as a sales representative. Gary has built on the legacy of the Trust brothers and his father, continuing the tradition of customer service while introducing digital technology and larger, four-color presses to the company’s capabilities.
