Gallatin Publishing Company was incorporated in 1963. It has been owned and operated by Darryl and Liz Wilkinson since 1982. The firm offers a variety of services, requiring a wide range of skills from its experienced staff of employees. A major business expansion occurred in 2009 with the acquisition of a 6-unit newsprint press and relocation into a larger, remodeled facility in Gallatin.
Printing a daily and many community newspapers, free distribution shoppers and monthly periodicals is the company's primary source of business. The flagship newspaper for Gallatin Publishing Company is the rural county seat paper continuously published in Daviess County, Mo., since 1864, the Gallatin North Missourian. Weekly shopper editions of The Ad Pages are distributed into every household in a 3-county area. Gallatin Publishing also owns and publishes a monthly news product, the Lake Viking News, serving a 1,600-acre private residential lake community near Gallatin.
After several years of research and development underwritten by Gallatin Publishing Company, an internet business was formally incorporated in 2006 as GranDesign, LLC. Internet services include web site construction, hosting and analysis for a wide variety of clients located mostly in Northwest Missouri.
Gallatin Publishing Company has been a regional leader in providing internet website promotions especially in real estate and public auctions. The initial portal -- offering a regional source for news, real estate listings, auctions and vehicles for sale - was launched asNorthwestMissouri.com which continues. This initial success prompted a second portal website called ShoMeMoreRealEstate.com to serve the rest of North Missouri and portions of South Iowa. A major reorganization and redesign was completed in 2011, expanding similar data categories under the umbrella of a new brand name: GPCink.com
