company information


PressSense® has been dedicated to helping you find the right materials for your applications since George Gross opened the doors in 1982. He began his business as a regional label paper distributor. As the business steadily grew, Bob Schmidt and Tom Gross entered the partnership to advance our technology platform and portfolio of pressure sensitive and plastic substrates. In 2008, Tom Leiding joined the ownership team and brought his 25 years’ experience in plastics and films to expand sales and new markets. Together they have strategically grown business to supply a full range of products to all of North America. The key to our success is our combined market knowledge, intellectual property, excellent service and loyal employees. PressSense® is still family owned today and unmatched in our dedication to our customers and team members.
