Corvallis will lose one of its civics and arts organizations stalwarts as the parent company for Henderson’s Production Center will cease production operations at the location and shift the focus to offering office solutions. For instance, they will apparently no longer be offering small runs of events flyers and posters.
Henderson’s has been deeply valued in the non-profit community for its willingness to offer affordability and even sponsorships while consistently producing high-quality work. Henderson’s production manger Tiffany Plemmons said, “The best part about Hendersons – hands down – our customers! They really made this a great place to be. I personally have met and gotten to know several outstanding citizens in Corvallis, whom I might not have otherwise. I can speak for the entire staff here – we will really miss this.”
Majestic Theatre supervisor Jimbo Ivy said, “Henderson’s was a huge part of what we do at the Majestic. They were essentially staff in that their service fit seamlessly into our workflow and their quality was something we were proud of. They will be sorely missed.”
According to Plemmons, the closure is slated for Nov. 30 and plans are for many of the current staff to stay on in different positions.
Henderson’s has been in Corvallis for almost 50 years; they were acquired 13 years ago by a Xerox-owned company, CTX. The Corvallis Advocate has been a customer.
