Tony Rotino Retires After Decades Of Dedicated Service To Local Commercial Printing Business

Tony Rotino, whose service to commercial printing company World Arts, Inc. dated back to the company’s purchase of the former White Arts in August of 1993, officially retired on Friday, March 30. To commemorate Tony’s retirement, the company marked the special occasion by hosting a luncheon in his honor. Tony also received a plaque to commemorate the milestone. Taking part in the special presentation were, left to right: Matt Leach, vice president of production; Darrin Dillman, vice president of operations; Karla Dillman, human resources director; Tony Rotino; and John Gillaspy, President of World Arts, Inc.

Tony’s local commercial printing career actually dates back more than five decades to the former Owen Litho, which opened in the 1950s in what was once the Owen County Journal building on East Franklin Street here in Spencer. The business continued under the Owen Litho banner for more than 20 years, but in 1975 a sale agreement was worked out with an Indianapolis-based firm known as White Arts. The Spencer plant, and a plant in Lafayette, were satellites of the company’s large printing company in the capital city. (Staff Photo)
