In the spring of 1970, Raymond F. Elliott Sr. started R-E working out of the basement of the family home in Brighton, NY selling Teledyne Rotolite Diazo Blueprint equipment to architectural and engineering firms in Western NY. Six months later, the business moved from the family home to a small space in Pittsford at The Forman Pickle Factory on Grove Street.
In the fall of 1976 following the marriage of Raymond F. Elliott Jr (Rick) to Sheila Butler Elliott, Rick joined his Dad in business and the two expanded the business to include the sales of diazo media products including blue and black line diazo paper, linen, sepia, mylar and vellum. It wasn’t long after that Ray and Rick ventured into the technology of diazo printing services and took over more space in the Pickle Factory to provide these services to local architects, engineers and the like.
As time went along and technology advanced Rotolite – Elliott moved into wide format digital printing and phased out the diazo equipment used at One Grove Street. In 1983, Sheila joined the business part time working in the office answering phones processing orders and invoices and doing general office work while learning the business and products Rotolite carried.
In January of 1994 Raymond F. Elliott Sr. passed away at the age of 70 following a three year battle with cancer. Rick and Sheila bought the business in the spring of 1994.
In 2013, we became a Certified NYS WBE and at that time the business transitioned and Sheila became President and CEO, Rick, V.P. and Treasurer, Matt V.P. and Secretary.
The company has always had a strong belief in keeping as much business local as possible and worked with Xerox Corp for many years utilizing their wide format technology and equipment, even being one of the Beta Test sites for the Xerox 8850.
Our business has evolved as time has past and we are now proud to have become a full-service print house, dedicated to the varied industries of Rochester, NY. We are always ready to commit to and provide the latest services and solutions for our industry. Today with our vast array of modern digital reprographics and state of the art equipment, we continue to place our customers first and believe we are partners in achieving success and advancement for all.
In 2020 Rotolite Elliott Corporation celebrated 50 years in business and 50 years in the same location! With the mindset of growing the business we opened our signage department purchasing a Flatbed Printer and CNC Cutter/Router. This now gives us the capabilities to provide our customers with a multitude of needs ranging from store front signage to simple vinyl applications.
