President & CEO Ismael Diaz announces plan to open Midwest facility next year.
WESTON, Florida – September 27, 2023: Mail, print, signs, fulfillment, and creative marketing solutions provider Postal Center International (PCI) had the distinct honor of being chosen by the United States Postal Service (USPS) to represent the mailing industry at the National Postal Customer Council (PCC) Week’s main event held at the Boston General Mail Facility in Massachusetts on Wednesday, September 20, 2023.
Ismael Diaz, President & CEO of PCI, was the guest speaker at the event. Diaz used the opportunity to unveil strategic plans to expand presort mail operations to the US Midwest next year as part of the company’s commitment to serve its clients in the region.
The marquee occasion was held in Boston as the Greater Boston PCC was recognized as this year’s top performer in the mailing industry. The United States Postmaster General Louis DeJoy was the keynote speaker. Top business leaders, USPS representatives, and other PCC members were also in attendance.
Diaz, in his presentation, shared PCI’s story, from its humble beginnings in a Pompano Beach condo 39 years ago, with its client-centric philosophy, to its meteoric rise as a go-to company and industry leader.
“PCI’s story started with a single step, a vision held by individuals like our founding fathers, who dared to dream big and envision a new era. I’m honored to witness PCI’s meteoric rise from its humble beginnings to becoming a true powerhouse leader. Our journey has led us to a juncture where expansion is not just a choice; it’s a necessity,” said Diaz. “We are thrilled to announce firsthand that we plan to expand our operations into the Midwest area and expect to be fully operational in the first quarter of 2024.”
PCI’s expansion will increase the company’s national reach and create new jobs in the Midwest region.

After his address, Ismael Diaz was honored with a commemorative US Postal Service Freedom Stamp, which serves as a poignant symbol celebrating the enduring values and liberties that unite and empower our nation’s citizens. This significant gesture underscores the appreciation for Diaz’s commitment to these principles.
