Grimco Canada, a wholly owned subsidiary of Grimco International, has agreed to acquire Acme Neon & Plastic Sign Supplies Ltd. based in Toronto, with additional locations in Montreal and Vancouver. Grimco Canada is also based in Toronto, with more facilities in the Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal and Dartmouth markets.
Acme Neon & Plastic Sign Supplies Ltd. has been a national distributor to the Canadian sign market since 1967. “Grimco was the logical fit for us,” said Bob Craig, President of Acme. “Their commitment to Canada has been clear since their entry into the market and has proven that they are here to stay and to grow.”
Grimco traces its roots back to 1875, when the company began as a single-location stamp and badge provider. Today, the company operates 48 locations across Canada and the United States focused on providing technology and service for the North American signage industry.
“The Canadian market is an incredibly important part of our growth strategy,” said John Burkemper, President of Grimco. “That’s why we have been heavily investing in local markets and are bringing together these great teams to continue to serve our customers with the best people and products in the industry.”
