The Pewaukee plant is the birthplace of Quad. Harry V. Quadracci founded the company at the Pewaukee location, a vacant factory, in 1971 with one press and one saddle stitcher. In 2008 the plant was repurposed as a direct mail facility and became the headquarters for our direct marketing operations. Our employees have access to an onsite fitness center that is open 24/7. We offer competitive pay, health, dental, optical, pharmacy, life insurance, 401k, vacation, and other great benefits.

Quad is a Wisconsin-based company, which is among the largest magazine and direct-mail printers in the U.S. Our company leverages its strong print foundation as part of a much larger, robust integrated marketing services platform that helps marketers and content creators improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their marketing spend across offline and online media channels.

Quad is closely following the 2019 Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and implementing processes that promote the safety of our employees, candidates, customers, and communities.
