Davis Blue Print Company in East L.A.
The Davis Blue Print Company is a family owned business, located within the Lincoln Heights suburb of the City of Los Angeles. Incorporated in 1982, this firm provides reprographic and blue print services for the architectural and construction industry.

Davis Blue Print is one of the few reprographic companies which has sustained the necessary machinery, equipment and modern technology necessary to accommodate the needs of the industry. However, the downturn in the economy and the lack of development impacted the business and placed them at the edge of bankruptcy. In their prime, Davis Blue Print employed 25 individuals, running double shifts.

Today, they are down to 7 employees.

The East L.A. BusinessSource Center, operated by Barrio Planners, Inc., was able to provide significant assistance on behalf of the Davis Blue Print Company:
  • input and update accounting information for the past 2 years
  • negotiate outstanding vendor accounts payable to accommodate monthly payments
  • secure the re-establishment of their Small Business Certification
  • secure the filing of their Corporate Federal Tax Returns
  • secure contracts for the reprographic services of the soon to be built Los Angeles Rams Stadium
  • secure contracts for reprographic services for the Los Angeles International Airport in the amount of $2.5 million over the next 2 years
  • provide a pathway to secure financing of $300K in loan funding to purchase new equipment
Overall, the Davis Blue Print Company is now in a positive cash flow position, with great sources of new income revenues, which will assure the reinstatement of 6 staff members within the next 4 months.
