In 1991, after years of serving as Printing Plant Manager and Pressroom Supervisor, our founder, Joe Mengel, assumed the duties of General Manager of a prestigious mailing operation. During his years of service, he had served as co-chairman of the Lancaster County Postal Customer Council. Recognizing that fulfillment was a natural progression, he built a separate, successful fulfillment facility. Taking his years of service and experience, he established Commonwealth Fulfillment & Distribution, Inc. in Lititz, PA. Unfortunately, 10 years later, our Founder and Owner of Commonwealth Fulfillment & Distribution, Joe Mengel, passed away following a lengthy illness. Joe’s son, Mike Mengel, has taken over ownership of Commonwealth Fulfillment & Distribution. Mike is extremely interested in promoting his father’s corporate vision and business legacy. It has been through our current loyal customers that our solid foundation was formed to allow and plan for future growth and expansion. Please feel free to contact us with any future opportunities or endeavors that would be mutually beneficial to both our enterprises.
