Additional Culture Details
American's story began in Glenwood, Minnesota, the hometown of founder and CEO, Larry Zavadil. Since its humble establishment in 1981, American has flourished into one of the largest distributors in the industry, providing our customers with print, promotional products, marketing collateral, fulfillment and more. Throughout our growth in technology, resources and sales, we maintain our grass-roots attitude by operating as the only employee-owned distributorship in the industry. This results in a team of personally-invested employees, both inside the home office and out in the field, implementing creative solutions while managing costs.

- In 2000, our founder & CEO, Larry Zavadil, sold this company to its employees in order to maintain its integrity, traditions and resources. Through our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), every participating employee and sales associate holds a stake in the company’s success.
