Since then we have been involved in numerous industries and disciplines. Whether it was plastics or an emerging electrical technology, Veterinarian medicine, or automation our team developed a solid in person, in print and on line strategy.
Developing ancillary brands is what we have always done and moving into new opportunities to extend the print, in person and on line products is what we live for.
Today our company and its related interests boast a dynamic group of individuals that work as close as any team in publishing from their posts around the country. Being members of the industry first and publishers second has always set a Kerrwil property ahead of the pack.
