Let’s take a moment to meet the family behind Lahlouh, Inc! As business owners, we’ve always celebrated the fact that we are a family-owned and operated business and pride ourselves on maintaining a family feel with our employees and clients.
We decided to create a series that showcases the individual personalities behind the name. Each of them have taken a different path into the print industry and have grown into their professional careers over time with the help and mentorship of the Lahlouh team. Next up is Anthony Lahlouh, our VP of Manufacturing in California. Read on to learn a little more about Anthony and his path to print!
How long have you been at Lahlouh?
I have been at Lahlouh since 2014, wrapping up my 8th year working full time.
I have always loved singing. In high school I was the lead in multiple musicals and now I’m the lead singer in a cover band I started with my cousin John and a few of our friends. You can check us out on instagram: @cousin_louh_and_the_kung_fus
What role do you currently hold? What roles have you held in the past?
I am currently VP of Manufacturing in California. I started off my time in production in our large format department working as a pressman when we initially brought on our Onset X3. After a few years working in large format, I became the digital print manager, managing our print-on-demand and large format team.
Best advice you’ve received since you started your professional career?
Don’t wait for opportunities to come your way. Seek them out.
Favorite memory from working at Lahlouh?
I love giving plant tours to clients, vendors or new hires. Those memories are my favorite as it reignites my passion for what we do every time I do it.
What advice would you give to someone wanting to get into the print industry?
Keep your eyes open outside of work because print is everywhere and the more you take the time to notice it the more passion you will have for it.
What do you think the future of the print industry looks like? How do you think that will impact Lahlouh’s future growth?
There will always be a need for ink on paper. I believe that the future of the print industry will continue to trend toward digital printing for variable data and away from offset printing. We will need to look to continue to invest in new technologies to be competitive in price and offerings in the market.
If could give your younger self one piece of advice, what would it be?
Consistency earns trust with your coworkers. Stay consistent and be dependable and success will follow.
