 After 25 years as a director of IT services at DST Systems, Jeff Quast took his leadership background and commitment to excellence and decided to start his own company. Two years ago in October, he began the SpeedPro Imaging franchise in Shawnee.

The business has grown quickly for Jeff and the company’s three employees. “It’s been rewarding to start this business from scratch and build it to where we are today,” Jeff said. “I like the freedom of having my own business and the customer satisfaction that goes with it.”

SpeedPro Imaging specializes in large-format printing. The company works to boost brand recognition and reach customer groups with large-scale printing projects. They produce a variety of products including event graphics and banners, trade show displays, vehicle wraps, wall murals, and window graphics. Using innovative technologies, SpeedPro Imaging produces high-quality products with a quick turnaround.

“We do a lot of different types of verticals, signage for heating, cooling, and plumbing companies in addition to advertising on vehicles, trade show materials, pop-up banners, decals, magnets and more depending on the needs of our clients,” Quast said.

Quast has clients across the U.S., including his largest client, Bellator MMA in California. Locally he has a number of clients including Westmor Industries in Shawnee.

As a member of the Shawnee Chamber of Commerce, Quast values the opportunities to interact with other business owners. He would encourage other businesses to join the chamber. “Be active, build relationships and you will come away with business, good friendships, and referrals.”

Quast’s schedule keeps him too busy to attend many chamber events. “I send Greg Olerich to these events and he does a good job of representing the company.”

SpeedPro will offer Shawnee Chamber members a discount depending on the type of project. Please keep this in mind as you plan for the October 8 Business Expo or other projects.
