CONNSTEP SELECTS CHURCH HILL CLASSICS AS
MANUFACTURER OF THE MONTH FOR MADE IN CT PROGRAM
Monroe, CT - March 23, 2015 - Manufacture overseas? Outsource for cheaper labor and costs? Those choices would never be options for Lucie Voves, President and CEO of Church Hill Classics (online as diplomaframe.com), a leading U.S. manufacturer and online retailer in the college diploma frame industry. CONNSTEP’s Made in CT Program, celebrating companies that make their products in Connecticut, recently selected Church Hill Classics for its monthly honor.
From the basement in her Newtown home in 1991 to Inc. 5000 Magazine’s Fast Growth Business list for the 8th time, Mrs. Voves attributes most of the company’s success to:
- Handcrafted, top-quality frames that incorporate school logos
- Creative marketing knowledge that customizes programs for each college bookstore partner
- Professional, individualized customer service by devoted employees
- Enduring commitment to Made-in-America and produced in Connecticut
Mrs. Voves distinguishes her company from that of overseas competitors. “Crafting superior-quality products, providing online customization and quick turn time, and supporting our partners with strong marketing support afford us with a clear advantage over foreign imports.”
Nestled in a 3,000 square foot building in Monroe, Church Hill Classics employs over 90 highly qualified, caring employees who provide a personal touch and seek to build customer trust. They admire Mrs. Voves’ dedication to keep jobs and production in Connecticut and consider their colleagues an extended family.
