FMI Celebrates 60 Years of Business
This year marks the 60th anniversary for Forms Manufacturers Inc. (FMI), a leading manufacturer of business forms and related printed products in the Midwest. FMI continues to provide independent distributors and other resellers with top-quality products, as it has since it was founded in 1957.
Norman Van Hooser, Homer Combs and Doyle Hyat started the company in Girard, Kan., under the name VA-CO-HY. After already moving to a larger facility once, the business continued to expand. As a result, a new building at the current location was built in 1962. The company was sold in 1969 to Livingston Oil, and the name was changed to LVO. In 1972, Jim Orwig, the president at that time, purchased LVO and changed the name to Forms Manufacturers Inc. (FMI). In 1974, the company’s building was extended to 74,000 sq. ft. to accommodate the continued growth of the business. Sovereign Business Forms purchased the company in 1999, and it remained a subsidiary for 15 years.
In June 2014, Ennis Inc. purchased FMI. The company is now part of the Ennis network, which consists of more than 50 locations, including 11 Ennis-named facilities and 38 unique brands, throughout the United States.
The Ennis family of companies congratulates FMI on this impressive milestone.
