Our People Come First

Walter Soini

Our People Come First, by Walter Soini, a Russian-Finnish sculptor, graces the front of the headquarters of Serigraph Inc. at 3801 E. Decorah Road. Soini, an international artist whose works have been commissioned in Russia, Finland, and Duluth, Minnesota, created a similar piece from stainless steel for Petrozavodsk, Russia. It speaks to Serigraph’s corporate philosophy of putting its co-workers and their families at the center of its enterprise. It was purchased in 1997 for the opening of Serigraph’s headquarters and Decorating Technologies Institute.
