Contac Services Integrates Two manroland Presses

July 13, 2010

Contac Services of Delta, British Columbia, has successfully integrated two manroland presses into its operation obtained through its purchase of Forum Productions, earlier this year.

A ROLAND 504 and ROLAND 706 press were moved to Contac's 30,000-square-foot plant by manroland's Canadian service team over a tight schedule of four weeks.

"Everything was done within Contac's aggressive timeline. One press was up and running as the other press was being moved in, and assembled. There was minimal downtime for the production operation – and I've never seen this level of continued production during an installation before. No overtime was employed to get the job completed on time! To say this was a phenomenal installation would be a serious understatement," said Contac General Manager Garry Gunter.

“The commencement of 2010 also marks a period of remarkable growth for Contac,” said Riaz Pisani, President and CEO of Contac, in a press release announcing the acquisition of Forum Productions in February. “With our increased volumes generated by the Contac Procurement Platforms, eConcierge Program, and our expanding client base, the acquisition of additional print machinery operated by an experienced staff could not have come at a better time.”

Originally founded in 1978 as a third-party logistics company for the travel industry, Contac expanded its services to include printing, marketing and become a single-source company for clients ranging from Air Canada to Whirlpool. Today, it continues to manage a vast number of tourism and travel-related brands. Headquartered in Vancouver, Contac has facilities in Toronto, Montreal, Miami and London, UK.
