With more than 100 years of combined Yellow Pages experience, three former Pacific Bell executives founded AGI Publishing, Inc. in June 1985. In 1987, they began operations as Valley Yellow Pages and established a corporate office in Fresno, California. The first directory, “Fresno & Clovis,” was published in 1988. Today, more people are employed by Valley Yellow Pages throughout Central and Northern California.
Valley Yellow Pages was founded on the principle of bringing direct competition to the marketplace thus providing advertisers with a choice in Yellow Pages advertising. And, the best way to do this is through creating an invaluable resource containing all types of local business, which would also serve as an effective, and affordable, advertising vehicle.
As Valley Yellow Pages has grown from its beginnings, it has become not only an important community resource, but also a valuable contributor to the communities it serves. All of the employees of Valley Yellow Pages continue to build upon the company’s prominent standing in the industry, while maintaining its tradition of delivering the best possible product at the best possible price.
