The Burke Group of Companies has acquired McCallum Printing Group. Both companies are located in Edmonton, Alberta, bringing together two of the leading print and media companies in the region, creating an entity with a range of services.
“As the printing industry progresses, we understand that diversification is the key to long-term growth and prosperity,” said Ian Burke Owner and CEO of Burke Group. “So, when we saw the opportunity to join forces with McCallum Printing – one of our largest and most respected competitors – I jumped in with both feet. The acquisition of McCallum compliments our overall service perfectly.”
Darren Pohl, McCallum Printing’s former President and CEO has committed to stay on in a senior management capacity to oversee sales and sales management.
“I am thrilled to see Edmonton’s top two printing companies come together like this. I’m even more excited to be a part of this new organization,” said Pohl. “The economies of scale and efficiencies that will be created mean a superior customer experience. Our pillars of strength have always been exceptional service, quality and innovation and this merger will not only strengthen those, but also expand the suite of services we can offer our clientele.”
Being from the same primary Canadian city, McCallum and Burke Group’s staff have worked together in the past for other printing operations and share similar culture and community focus.
