DATA Communications Management is integrating its Multiple Pakfold Operations into its Brampton, Ont. facility. As a result, DATA will exit Multiple Pakfold’s facility before the end of 2017 and relocate the division’s staff and production capabilities into its primary 269,000-square-foot facility.
Multiple Pakfold is a supplier of business forms, cheques and labels to the trade printing market, with approximately 100 employees operating in a 60,000-square-foot facility in Mississauga and with sales offices in Calgary, Mississauga and Montreal. DATA’s Brampton facility is focused on the production of long-run forms, roll products and labels for DATA’s enterprise clients.
“Together with this initiative, we are moving some work between our Drummondville, Quebec, and Brampton plants to prepare for the onboarding of the large financial services client we recently announced, to improve operating margins,” said Michael Sifton, Chief Executive Officer of DATA.
In late-September, DATA announced a new multi-year agreement with an undisclosed “major Canadian Schedule I bank.” The agreement focused on DATA providing procurement, production, inventory management and distribution of the bank’s business communications in Canada. This inlcudes statements, business forms and envelopes.
DATA also announced plans to close and relocate its Granby, Quebec, warehousing operations into its 170,000-square-foot Drummondville facility before the end of 2017. DATA previously moved substantially all of Granby’s production capabilities to Drummondville in the fourth quarter of 2015, but has continued with warehousing and distribution activities as well as other limited administrative functions in the 100,000-square-foot Granby facility.
DATA is also announcing a reduction of 30 jobs in certain indirect labour and selling, general and administrative staff positions.
