About Us Like many family-owned companies, Visual Products, Inc. built it's business on the strength of relationships and a strapping work ethic. A great love for "making things" drew Carroll Breed, Jr. into manufacturing and eventually a position as plant manager for a binder company in New York. He moved into a sales position with the same company in North Carolina and when the entrepreneurial spirit took hold, Carroll and several partners began Visual Products in 1967. Within a few years the partners had been bought out and the company was entirely family-owned. In an era where family-owned companies were usually destined to be father & son-owned, Visual Products became Carroll & Jean Breed and daughters.

Youngest daughter, Gail, literally grew up in the company, spending school snow days, afternoons and weekends with her parents in the office & plant. Beginning as a young assistant, she quickly took responsibility for shipping and inventory, gained hands-on experience in all areas of the business and officially joined the company in 1978. Oldest daughter Marsha arrived at Visual Products in 1984 and like other family members, she learned by doing. Honoring their parents' vision for the company and embracing the strong work ethic instilled in all who work here, the sisters have successfully piloted Visual Products into its third generation of leadership with the addition of Gail's oldest daughter, Angela Osborne. Angela has taken on the roll of sales & marketing. Having grown up working in the plant during summers & on school breaks she officially joined the team in 2005, bringing with her knowledge of manufacturing and a love of all things binders and packaging.

Today, Visual Products, Inc. is women-owned and family operated 3rd generation company. Lines between roles are often transparent, since all family members are engaged in building the success of the business. Relationships are key to this success - family and employee relationships inside the company and strong customer relationships across the country.

The company remains headquartered in the heart of the Piedmont Triad with offices and manufacturing operations in High Point, North Carolina. Although Carroll Breed passed away in 1996, his love for making products of exceptional quality and reputation for giving excellent service lives on in the endeavors of his daughters and grand-daughter.
