Mitchell Press is purchasing the assets of Teldon Print Media, which the Burnaby, BC, company claims will make it the Pacific Northwest’s largest independently owned provider of heatset-web printing services.
While selling its Print Media division, Teldon will continue to operate the other divisions of its business, including Teldon Marketing Products and Alive Publishing. Teldon was established in 1969 in Vancouver.
“This acquisition is a strong complement to our business and a testament to the standards of excellence Teldon has built in our industry,” said Howard Mitchell, President of Mitchell Press. “By adding both these additional capabilities and the associated revenue to our business, we will build upon Mitchell Press’ established brand and strategically build an even stronger range of services for our customers.”
Mitchell Press, now in its third generation of family ownership, was founded in 1928 by Howard Mitchell Sr. In 2008, the company moved from its Kitsilano facility in Vancouver, where it had operated for over 50 years, to a new, custom-built printing plant in south Burnaby.
