Business group

Matthews International Corporation.

Tradition and Craftsmanship.

John Dixon Matthews emigrated from his native England and opened a small business in Pittsburgh in 1850. The skilled engraver set himself a clear goal: He wanted to become nothing less than the market leader in the printing industry. The news about his outstanding skills and services spread quickly. The small business flourished and became a public company, Matthews International Corporation, in 1902.
