Hugh Cameron is honoured for his support of Mohawk College, which renamed its advanced printing lab as the Hugh Cameron Digital Print Learning Centre.
Hugh Cameron, a long-time supporter of Mohawk students, was recognized last week for his leadership in building one of the most-advanced digital printing labs at any college in Canada.

More than 200 students in Mohawk’s three-year Advanced Diploma Graphic Design program train at Mohawk lab where they learn how to turn digital designs into finished products and packaging, including business cards, saddle stitched and perfect bound books, pads, posters, banners, clothing and a wide variety of other specialized print and packaging design products.

The newly named Hugh Cameron Digital Print Learning Centre includes a Kongsberg XL22 cutting table, a Roland 64-inch large format inkjet system, a Xerox 800 press, UV coater and die cutter. Mohawk’s Digital Print Learning Centre officially opened in February 2012 with support from Xerox Canada, Bell Howell, Esko Graphics and the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation of Canada.

“Mohawk College is proud to recognize Hugh Cameron for his generous and continuing support of students in our Graphic Design program,” said Ron McKerlie, President of Mohawk College. “Hugh has been instrumental in securing the most advanced digital print and finishing equipment available at any college in Canada.”

Cameron is the Chairman of Retail Ready Packages Inc. and President of the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation of Canada. He has secured more than $750,000 worth of equipment and funding for student scholarships and bursaries.

Cameron began his career in the packaging industry in 1951, working for companies including Belkin Packaging, Ace Containers Limited, Crown Zellerbach and Bathurst Containers before launching his own business in 1968.
