Commercial Envelope Mfg. Co., Inc. purchased Heinrich Envelope in December of 2001. Heinrich Envelope was a small family owned business that had been in business since the mid 1950’s. Commercial Envelope has been in business since the 1920’s.
Commercial Envelope also has plants in Deer Park, LI, New York, Altoona, Pennsylvania, Carlstadt, New Jersey and Kirksville, Missouri.
CEM, as a whole, makes approximately 35 million envelopes each day. We make approximately 3.5 million per day in the Iowa plant alone.
Since 2001, CEM (Commercial Envelope) has spent well over a million dollars in machine upgrades and support equipment upgrades to make Heinrich more viable and competitive in the envelope business.
We are currently looking into building a new building in the Ames/Boone area, as we are out of room in the current facility. We are growing rapidly and are looking forward to growing more and modernizing our equipment base.
We employ several ABATE members now and we are always looking for good, responsible people to join our family and to grow with us. Thank you Heinrich Envelope!

Riding weather has finally graced us along with a very busy time of year for all of us. Graduations, weddings, vacations fill up our calendars. Most of us can always find an hour or two to squeeze in a ride and enjoy the company of the open road and great friends! I personally have had some milestones in my life the last few weeks. I have to sit back and think, “Am I really old enough to have been at my job for 30 years, see my baby turn 21, be out of high school for 30 years, prepare for my first born to be moving out of our house and to celebrate our 25 wedding anniversary”! Can’t be, I must be dreaming—after all, I am only 29! (don’t I wish) With all this going on…..we just have to remember to take time to enjoy ourselves, family and friends. Enjoy today like there will be no tomorrow! Wherever the bike wheels lead you this summer, enjoy and ride safe! Until next time………… Carol th
Since the last newsletter we all have been hitting the road every chance we get. It is nothing to get a ride together in a moment’s time. Ask Laurie Platter she did it last weekend and we had a blast. As long as we are on two wheels and have the wind in our faces,
it doesn’t matter where we end up. It is invigorating just to have the ride.
If you made it to the Rodeo last weekend, I am sure you will agree with me that changing the location this year was a change for the good. We didn’t have the cooperation with the weather-
but who does? It is the
chances we take and for the most part I think everyone
had a good time.
Bob Brim and the Rodeo
Committee and the volunteers
that generously gave their
time to make it a success.
want to commend Terri Georgesen’s grandsons, Christian and Cory for getting up early to help us serve breakfast. My hat is off to their mother Shawn, you should be proud. They were a delight. Talk is already being done of ideas to make it even better for next year.
Hope to see you on the road.
In Honor Of All Motorcyclists I saw you, hug your purse closer to you in the grocery store line. But, you didn't see me, put an extra $10.00 in the collection plate last Sunday. I saw you, pull your child closer when we passed each other on the sidewalk. But, you didn't see me, playing Santa at the local mall. I saw you,
