Client-centered philosophy

The employees of Corning Publishing Company are dedicated to our clients. "If it benefits our client, it benefits all of us." This client-centered philosophy prevails among knowledgeable, experienced people. Dedicated people with a positive work ethic, who operate high-speed, high-quality production equipment, ensure that our clients receive on-time delivery of high-quality printed products at very reasonable prices.


Corning Publishing began as a rural community newspaper in Corning, Clay County, Arkansas. The Clay County Courier, along with a small commercial printing operation, was purchased by J.V. Rockwell and his wife Thelma Rockwell in 1962, and it employed three full-time people. Over time, the award-winning family-owned newspaper business expanded to include the Pocahontas Star Herald, located in Pocahontas, Randolph County, Arkansas, Corning Publishing Company, and J.V. Rockwell Publishing Company also located in Corning. The businesses currently employ over 100 people.
