Like the printing industry we’ve transformed from an 1800’s South Dakota magazine to a multi-faceted print and media solutions group.
Our roots date back to the late 1800’s when The Dakota Farmer, a farming and agriculture magazine exceeded a circulation of more than 80,000. For local farmers, The Dakota Farmer was an integral communication tool available to rural farmers to help them learn more about farming efficiencies and technologies. We’ve come a long way since then. For the next seventy years, The Dakota Farmer would be transformed into a commercial print shop and renamed North Plains Press. It is here that our Chairman of the Board, Roger Feickert, got his start in the printing industry.
Roger began his career as a production worker and quickly rose through the ranks. By 1986, Roger purchased the company and renamed it Midstates Printing, Inc. For the next 30 years Roger’s passion for his customers, a keen business acuity and love of printing propelled the company to become one of the top 140 commercial printing companies in the US.
Today, Midstates Printing Inc. has evolved into a diversified company aptly renamed Midstates Group, which includes three company brands: Midstates Group, Quality Quick Print and Panther. Roger’s sons Matt and Justin joined the firm in 1999 and 2003 respectively. Roger recently retired and remains our Chairman of the Board. Matt Feickert serves as CEO of the Midstates Group and Justin Feickert serves as CEO of QQP and Panther Graphics.
