Short History of Ballantine

Short History of BallantineThomas J. Coté founded Ballantine in 1966. His brother Charles joined in 1968. For the first 24 years, Ballantine offered prepress and print production services. In 1990, we began to offer mailing services, in 2000 began offering creative services and in 2006 began offering one-to-one marketing solutions such as variable data printing and personalized URLs. As a result, we’ve effectively become a full-service direct marketing company.

Charles’ son, Thomas C. Coté, joined Ballantine in 1978, followed by his brother John in 1984. When Tom J. and Charles both retired in 1989, Tom C. and John took over the reins. As the third generation of Cote’s have entered the business, we are well positioned for growth that keeps pace with the evolving technology and business environment of this 21st century.
