Grimco, a distributor of printing systems and medias for the signage industry, continues its investment in the Canadian market with purchase of the Access Imaging, a division of Access Group, which took place in April 2015.
Based in St. Louis, Missouri, Grimco made a significant move into the marketplace one year ago, in July 2014, purchasing the Canadian operations of Proveer Sign and Graphics, which had five locations across the country – Toronto, ON, Montreal, QC, Dartmouth, NS, Calgary, AB, and Vancouver, BC. Grimco previously bought the United States interests of Proveer in May 2012, bringing its scope south of the border to more than 40 locations.
A spokesperson from Grimco indicated the company plans to maintain its existing five locations in Canada, while the Access Imaging purchase expands its wide format sales and technical expertise in multiple markets.
“The Canadian sign industry is growing and expanding in exciting ways,” explained the spokesperson. “The knowledge and creativity of the customers is what really attracted us to the market. We are excited about the ability to offer our customers the benefits of our North American purchasing power while maintaining a local presence in each market.”
