ESOP / Employee Stock Ownership Plan

logo
What is an ESOP? An Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is a tax qualified deferred compensation employee benefit. The employees are the beneficial owners of stock in the company and these stock shares are included in the compensation of the work performed by the employees. The shares are held in a trust until an employee retires or leaves the company and It is only then that those particular shares are sold.

Reproductions, Inc., became 100% employee owned in 1996 and is the only employee owned reprographics firm in the United States. As owners, each employee shares the same passion and drive to provide the best service and the highest quality materials.

    Russ Blankenship, President

    Talk about working your way up! Russ joined the Repro crew in 1979 as a driver. He then began to work with old fashioned blueprints trading in the delivery truck for the front counter and became a Store Manager in the mid 80’s. By the 90’s he was named Operations Manager and in 1998 named Vice President. He finally took the reins as President in 2007. He loves to say “Find a job you enjoy and you will never work a day in your life” and after 38 years, it’s clear that Russ enjoys his job.

    When Russ is not enjoying his work, he is enjoying his family including his beautiful wife of 37 years, Kelly and their two daughters Kayla and Korie.  He also enjoys riding his motorcycle or roughhousing with his two Golden Retrievers, Obie and Buddy.

  • Mike Carpenter, Vice President
    Mike Carpenter, Vice President

    Ask anyone around Repro what Mike is passionate about and they will tell you “The Arizona Wildcats”. Mike is a fanatical sports fan. He takes his customers needs even more seriously. Mike started with Repro in 1985 in the small format black and white department. His dedication to excellence was obvious to those around him and was quickly promoted to Store Manager in the early 90’s. In 2007 Mike became Vice President where he continues to be the driving force behind Reproductions, Inc. today.

    When Mike is not at work, he is relaxing with his family and good friends catching as many sporting events as possible. The next time you are at Repro, ask Mike about his favorite moment in U of A sports history.

    Stephen Buslig, IT Manager

    Stephen is the man behind the curtain. Repro’s very own Wizard of Oz. As the head of Repro’s IT department, Stephen can make miracles happen. Starting at Repro in 1992, he has worked with everything from blueprints to large and small format color printing and now has made a name for himself as the “I.T. Guy”.

    While Stephen can’t get enough of lines of code, he likes to snowboard, wrestle alligators and could be a serious contender in the Mahjong Olympics. Stephen also enjoys his pets and playing video games contemplating the meaning of life, while not at work.

    The newest member of senior management, Erin joined Repro in 1999. She started working at the front counter where she spearheaded the quality control area and opened the sign department. She then became Customer Relations Manager in 2005. Erin wears many hats, handling large printing jobs to planning Repro company functions and writing press releases. Erin is Repro’s go to gal.

    When she’s not making sure everything is running smoothly at Repro, she can be found with her family, camping, cooking or gardening, even if most of her gardening time consists of running her dog “Jet” out of her garden. Next time you’re at Repro, ask her how the veggie eating dog is doing.
