Sycamore began operations in 1978 when the Bucyrus Erie Crane plant contracted our services to reproduce Parts, Service and Operator manuals. In 1983 Books for Northwest, Koehring-Lorain, Bantam and Marklift Aerials were added. Terex Trucks, Scrapers and Loaders were acquired in 1990. Sycamore’s growth continued in 1996 with printing and fulfillment services for P&H, PPM and Terex Cranes.
To keep pace with customer needs and technology, that same year Sycamore purchased a state of the art print on demand center featuring Xerox Docutech systems. Print on demand would include electronic job submission, document capture, storage and retrieval, customization and database management. Sycamore was then ready to accept additional contracts for fulfillment with Terex Aerials, Simon Aerials, Terex RO, Simon RO and O&K-Trojan in 1998.
Fulfillment and printing operations were consolidated into our new 18,000 square foot facility in 2001. Since then Sycamore has continually grown with the acquisition of manuals for American Crane, Terex Compaction, Benford, Terex Construction, TXC Excavators, TXL Loaders, Schaeff, Fuchs, Fermec, Telelift TX, Lima Cranes models and most recently, Sycamore has expanded its services to include custom printing and promotional services.
Today, we are a privately owned company with decades of experience in printing and fulfillment. We are members of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, Promotional Products Association International and we are a recognized dealer for several major printing houses. Beyond printing, we provide services such as scanning and digital file management, converting microfilm to digital files for retrieval, CD & DVDs duplicating, and document storage/management (digital and physical).
Whether your needs are for one manual for an obsolete machine or manuals for an entire fleet of current machines, Sycamore’s experience and knowledge assures prompt and accurate fulfillment.
