About Us

Conrad Press, Ltd. is a family-owned and veteran owned and operated business that was initially established by Roy P. Conrad and
colleagues in 1939. Conrad’s sons, Michael and John, subsequently joined the business and eventually became the owners upon their
father’s death. The Conrads had grown the printing and newspaper business to include publishing the Monroe County Clarion, The Columbia Star, The Millstadt Enterprise, The Enterprise Shopper and the Monroe County Reporter.

In July 1987 the brothers sold their newspaper holdings to the Suburban Journals of Greater St. Louis while continuing their printing business. At that time the name of the company was changed from Clarion Printing Co., Inc. to Conrad Press, Ltd. and moved to its current location in downtown Columbia.

The family’s newspaper heritage resumed in 2001 when John Conrad co-founded the Monroe County Independent. This publication was successfully published for 20 years eventually being sold to the Waterloo Republic-Times.

The Conrads continue to operate the family printing business and are actively involved in the community’s business, civic, social, church, sports and fraternal organizations.
