Meet Magna IV’s Founders
Gary and Pat Middleton with their son, Kent.
After jumping head first into printing in high school, Gary Middleton played numerous roles in the industry from plate making to color contact separating. With printing undergoing rapid changes, Gary and his wife, Pat, decided to take a risk and open their own printing business. Magna IV officially opened in 1975. With Pat filling in as the company’s receptionist, bookkeeper, and even part-time delivery driver, she and Gary were able to steadily expand the business. They acquired several prominent printers in the region, including Diversa type in 1991, International Graphics in 1997, Parkin Printing in 1998 and Peerless Engraving in 2007.
Recently the Middletons retired and handed the reins over to their son and current CEO, Kent Middleton, and Kristi Dannelley, president and long-time employee.
