Phillips Engraving was founded by Mark Phillips. In 1945 he purchased Lotus Engraving and Photographic in Atchison, Kansas, which he renamed Phillips Engraving and moved to Springfield, Missouri in April of 1947.
Some of the early customers were Sweetheart Cup Company, Gospel Publishing House and Rock Tenn Company along with many of the local printing companies that are still customers today.
J.C. Porterfield began working for Phillips in 1959 bringing with him four years of experience as a photoengraver from Box Engraving in Paducah, Kentucky. In 1981, after 22 years of service, J.C. purchased the business from the retiring Phillips. In 1981, his son, David Porterfield, joined the Phillips team and became President in 1995 when his father went into semi-retirement. In 2001 he purchased the business from Angie Porterfield after the passing of J.C. Porterfield.
We are proud of our heritage and the tradition of customer service that has been and will continue to be Phillips Engraving.
