John Barney, President of Barney Printing Ltd., reached a deal with John Hueston, President of Aylmer Express Graphics Group, to amalgamate the two Ontario-based printing companies.
Barney Printing is a 77-year-old company that primarily provides commercial printing for the London, Waterloo, Guelph and Toronto markets. Barney Printing will continue to operate out of its current location in Woodstock. Barney Printing has been family owned since its inception in January 1934.
“The versatility that the Express adds, particularly in digital print and mail services, is essential today,” said John Barney. “Our customers will save time and money through the convenience of 1-stop shopping.”
Aylmer Express is a fourth-generation family business, founded 130 years ago, and now operates out of four production sites, including London, Woodstock, Aylmer and Richmond Hill locations. Early last year, Aylmer Express bought Accell Graphics of London, Ontario.
“This is a great fit. We have similar backgrounds and both are dedicated to maintaining high standards and premium quality,” said Hueston. “This puts us firmly in the 40-inch press market. Few can match our years of experience in everything from sheetfed printing and full bindery services to large-format output, to mail and data management.”
