Royal Announces New Owner
Royal, one of the Midwest's leading independent print manufacturers, recently announced that Tim Urness is now the sole managing owner of the company, effective immediately. Urness succeeds Ron Urness, who was the Brooklyn Park, Minnesota-based company's founder in 1977, and has successfully led Royal since that time.
Tim Urness has held many positions at Royal over the past 25 years. While working on his business management degree at the University of St. Thomas, he worked as a platemaker and customer service representative. After graduating, he worked as an account manager, sales manager, vice president and, most recently, president. His history with the company has given him the vision to understand and implement customer-driven solutions. He enjoys working with the sales team on new business opportunities and on long-term business planning.
"I am excited to have this opportunity to serve as Royal's second owner," Urness said. "With our company's distinguished 40-year history of serving print distributors, I look forward to continuing to find ways to grow our brand, move our company forward and deliver the highest level of service possible to our customers."
"I am very pleased to welcome Tim as Royal's new owner," said Ron Urness. "His vision will ensure the future success of the company."
Royal ranked No. 41 on Print+Promo’s 2018 Top 50 Suppliers list with more than $11 million in annual sales.
