The C.J. Group of Companies of Toronto has acquired Artwords Inc., which specializes in services for the retail sector.
Artwords was established in 1984 as a typesetting and assembly studio. Today, the company provides graphic production, proofreading, short-run printing, large-format printing, installation, kitting and packaging, as well as logistics and distribution services.
“This partnership is a great fit for our ever-expanding group of companies and will greatly help service and expand our retail division moving forward,” stated Jay Mandarino, President and CEO of the C.J. Group of Companies, which includes C.J. Graphics, Printers & Lithographers.
Dino Narsai is to remain as President of Artwords, which provides C.J. Graphics with a central Toronto location, as well as additional large-format inkjet and digital printing assets. “Dino’s company has been around for more than 25 years and he and his team are experts in the retail space, including in-store installations and execution,” stated Mandarino.
Mandarino indicated two more acquisitions by C.J. Group are planned before the end of the calendar year.
