Winnipeg-based Canadian Printing Equipment Ltd. becomes the exclusive dealer for C.P. Bourg technologies in the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, as well as authorization to sell the finishing equipment in British Colombia.
Canadian Printing Equipment (CPE) has extensive experience in selling short-run finishing equipment through its history with Standard Horizon. CPE is now transitioning away from Horizon to focus on C.P. Bourg technology. This line-up will include C.P. Bourg’s new BSF sheet feeder, which can feed toner-based presses with up to 15,000 letter-size sheets per hour. The system can also work with a maximum sheet size of 14.33 x 22.5 inches. CPE will also carry C.P. Bourg’s line of perfect binders, collators and 3-knive trimmers.
To support the C.P Bourg line, which is distributed in other Canadian regions by Robert E. Thistle, CPE has four service technicians located across the west. Claiming that its employees have a combined industry experience of more than 90 years, CPE buys and sells various pieces of prepress, press and bindery equipment, including UV coaters.
The company also provides warrantee-level service and has developed an extensive remarketing service for equipment, which it brokers to dealers around the world.
