Pel Hughes is a woman owned, 60 year company based in the heart of New Orleans. On August 29, 2005, Pel Hughes, a commercial printer and mailer founded in 1954 by Alice Hughes, was devastated by Hurricane Katrina’s floodwaters. In the wake of the destruction, we made a commitment to rebuild the company and the enchanting city it calls home. We turned the catastrophic event into an opportunity to transform itself from a traditional commercial printer and mailer into a successful marketing service provider (MSP). Today, Pel Hughes employs more than 65 people and operates out of a 65,000-square-foot facility.
Owner Jackie Hughes says, “Katrina was devastating, but it caused Pel Hughes to emerge as a very different kind of service provider.”
Our energy became focused on developing services that were more current and relevant to the markets we wanted to serve. Now we have the production firepower and plenty of technical experience which we are channeling into a focus on results as opposed to media. The company relies on a mix of hardware and software as well as data and marketing analysts to deliver cross-media marketing solutions to clients in most of the major vertical markets. Our services are geared toward the small and medium-business (SMB) segment.
As a leading Direct Marketing Service Provider, Pel Hughes provides measurable marketing solutions to help companies efficiently acquire new customers, nurture existing ones, and ROMI.
