Multi Bookbinding, Shawinigan, Que., is one of the largest trade binderies in Canada specializing in the production of case binding. They produce over 7 million books a year. Prints can vary from 100 to 50,000 copies with in-house services such as folding, sewing, laminating, and stamping with various finishes.

Multi Bookbinding have offered laminating as a service for years but aging equipment led them to look for a new one. Yvon Sauvageau, general manager of Multi Bookbinding, explains, “We needed to optimize our operations by replacing a 20-year-old machine. Considering the current industry delays and the difficulties in supplying electronic parts, we had to change our equipment with the leading technology.”

Their search led them to Autobond in summer 2022. After seeing a demonstration on the Autobond Mini 76 TH-PH, a 29.5-in. wide x 41.73-in. max format, high speed thermal laminator, it became clear it was the right solution.


Sauvageau continues, “The Autobond will allow us to continue to offer the best to our customers using cutting-edge technology while improving our operations and providing employees with new skills. The equipment itself will take up 45 per cent less floor space than our existing equipment and deliver significant additional capacity for continued growth in our business volume.”
