ATLANTA, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- John H. Harland Company (NYSE: JH) will celebrate its 80th anniversary in 2003 but reached an important milestone in 2002: the 30th anniversary of its production facility in Puerto Rico.

Harland opened the facility in Gurabo, Puerto Rico, in 1972. Today, the facility's 54 employees produce more than nine million check orders each year to financial institutions in Puerto Rico and throughout the Caribbean, including the United States Virgin Island and the British Virgin Islands.

Harland is the only check printer to have a production facility in the Caribbean, a fact that has helped it capture more than 85 percent of the financial institution market in the region.

"We understand the needs of our financial institution customers in the Caribbean because we are in the Caribbean," said Bill Anderson, senior vice president of operations for Harland Printed Products. "We are committed to the region and to helping our customers strengthen relationships with their customers.

According to Anderson, that commitment extends to a bilingual checks selections catalog for the Puerto Rico market, as well as other training and support collateral.
