GROUP J CANDIDATES


TRADE PRINTING
Gulam Jaffer    PA50 2010 #10 ranking

From a 150,000-square-foot plant, Jaffer arguably runs the most-influential trade printing company in Greater Toronto, which is no small feat. His Star Web operation holds three heatset web presses (48-, 24-, and 16-page), while the sheetfed-based West Star operation runs three 40-inch perfectors (8-, 10, and 12-colours), amid smaller presses. Jaffer can truly claim the ability to print on anything, from an onion skin to the heaviest folding-carton board.
