ARC Inc. began in 1988 as Ford Graphics, a $9 million Los Angeles-based reprographics company, acquired and managed by our two founders, S. “Mohan” Chandramohan, and our current Chairman, President and CEO, K. “Suri” Suriyakumar.
In less than 10 years, the company had acquired four additional reprographics firms, posting consolidated revenues of $101 million. From that point, ARC began what would become an unprecedented and unrivalled period of growth in the history of the reprographics industry.
In 1999, recognizing the critical need for applied technology in the reprographics industry, Mr. Suriyakumar began laying the groundwork for industry-specific internet and software applications, as well as e-commerce-based business models.
By 2003, the company was licensing several industry-standard applications, including its flagship online planroom product, PlanWell Enterprise™. It also launched a trade association to help spread the use of technology to the industry outside of ARC, and to act as a more independent advocate of the industry as a whole.
In February, 2005, American Reprographics made its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange trading under the ticker “ARC.”
Today, ARC has transformed its original business to become the premier document solutions company of its kind in the world. As our customers’ needs change, we will change with them, delivering the service, technology and products they’ve come to expect of the largest and most advanced company of its kind.
Our mission is simple; To deliver our customers’ time-critical information whenever they want it, wherever they want it, in whatever form they want it.
We are happy with the service provided by ARC, especially the quality of digital scanning work.
