Repros, Inc., a reprographics company opened for business in 1973 with 2 offices to serve the blueprinting needs of customers in the Cleveland and Akron markets. Customers relied upon local blueprint companies to reproduce architectural, engineering, construction and manufacturing drawings quickly and efficiently with ammonia-based blueprint equipment. Xerox was the first company in the 1980’s to introduce “plain paper” toner-based copying systems to the reprographics marketplace. Xerox Engineering Systems sold the smaller wide format plain paper copying systems through Xerox dealers like Repros, Inc. In 1999, after 23 years with Xerox Engineering Services, Lou LaGuardia, Sr. purchased Repros, Inc. Under Lou’s leadership and with his vision Repros doubled in size in sales and staffing, currently operating 3 offices in Northeast Ohio. The LaGuardia family continues to run, grow and manage Repros.
