New SpeedPro Imaging Franchise Owner, Gerald Stout, Helps Clients Increase Revenue with Large-Format, High-Resolution Graphics

SpeedPro Imaging

“The Akron area has an exciting and dynamic business climate focused on cutting-edge technology and innovation."

SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leading printing and graphics franchise, has awarded a new location in Akron, Ohio. The new studio is equipped to handle any large-format imaging project for local businesses, such as wall murals, event graphics, tradeshow displays, vehicle wraps, window graphics, and more.

SpeedPro Imaging Akron is owned and operated by local franchise owner Gerald Stout, a former project manager for IBM, one of the largest IT companies in the world. Stout’s experience stretches across several industries including manufacturing, information technology, printing, and professional services. After 19 years with the multi-national tech company, Stout retired and soon began searching for his next career opportunity.

His decision was easy after being introduced to the SpeedPro Imaging franchise opportunity, explaining, “Owning a SpeedPro franchise provides a rewarding opportunity to help other businesses succeed, while drawing on my love of the arts and my experience in printing, manufacturing, project management and account management.”

Stout’s drive to help business leaders grow revenue and recognition through large-format, high-resolution graphics is evident in his day-to-day operations. Having officially opened his doors in November 2017, Stout recalls a time when he and his team of experts went above and beyond to deliver for a client: “A customer realized three days before a trade show that he still needed several table graphics. He contacted us, thinking it was almost certainly too late to pull it all together, but we helped him create the designs, print the products, and even delivered them to his home the night before the event.” Stout affirms that customer service is at the forefront of his studio’s core values.

Stout adds that Akron is an optimal area for the franchise, nestled in a vibrant, future-focused community. “The Akron area has an exciting and dynamic business climate focused on cutting-edge technology and innovation,” says Stout. “It’s completely turning around from a declining 20th-century manufacturing base to a forward-thinking 21st-century mindset.”

As a member of three local chambers of commerce, Stout looks forward to actively supporting area businesses and community-focused programs with wide-format marketing solutions at his 1350 Home Ave. Suite S, Akron 44310 location.

SpeedPro Imaging has a nationwide network of 126 studios in 31 states, nearly a third of which have opened in the last three years alone. SpeedPro Imaging delivers superior display graphic products to deliver key messages and extend brand awareness on behalf of its clients. The company’s mission is to be considered the premier choice for large-format graphics and exceed clients’ expectations through unmatched timeliness, professionalism, and product quality.
