Valtim, a multi-channel marketing and fulfillment firm in Forest, Virginia, recently celebrated its 30th anniversary in October 2016. Founded in 1986, by Violet and Harvey Hamilton, this family-owned service company currently employs over 170 individuals operating over 200,000 square feet of manufacturing, warehouse, office, and contact center space. At a time when family-owned businesses are downsizing or succumbing to acquisition, Valtim continues to be an outstanding U.S.-based bright spot surpassing 100 percent growth since 2007.

“Today, Valtim offers all the services needed to execute our clients’ integrated marketing campaigns, from start to finish,” stated Tim Hamilton, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). “Our capabilities include: consulting, analytics, digital printing, mailing services, contact center resources, fulfillment solutions, reporting, and data management. We are proud to serve such well-known organizations as: the National Rifle Association, American Red Cross, United Service Organizations (USO), World Vision, Angel Tree, Smithsonian Institution, BASS, George Mason University and a number of others,” continued Hamilton.

From international charities to national political candidates, Valtim conducts complex, comprehensive marketing programs for its clients. Whether managing contact center inbound transactions, emails, social media exchanges, or capturing data and insuring integrity, Valtim creates and customizes marketing strategies and systems designed specifically for each client. “There is no one size fits all when it comes to integrated marketing campaigns. Strong, individualized, brand campaigns are what set us apart from our competitors.” states Hamilton.

This locally-based company supporting national clientele is a great example of what the entrepreneurial spirit can achieve. It was a solid idea, founded thirty years ago on the hopes and dreams of Violet and Harvey Hamilton. Today, it represents a growing and thriving business located in Bedford County, Virginia, part of the Lynchburg Metropolitan Statistical Area. “We believe deeply in remembering our origins and what it took to get here. We understand that we all succeed when we work together. We respect each other at all levels and everyone has a voice in the business. Whether you run our digital press, secure data, or manage our logistics, respect is part of our secret sauce for success for our customers. Good ideas originate with every employee,” states Hamilton.
