The PDI Group of Kirkland, Quebec, has entered into an exclusive agreement, through its wholly owned subsidiary Trans-Optique Inc., to merge its large-format-printing operations with those of both Imagerie DB Inc. and LVP.ca Inc. The move will create a significant Canadian large-format printing operation in the Montreal region.
The three companies plan to begin working together within a new, dedicated facility this summer. The resulting operation will be called PDI Large Format Solutions Inc. A statement released by PDI on the mergers explains: “The merger of our three companies will create an amazing synergy where our creative approach, our production capacity and our sales expertise will allow us to bring to market a greater depth and integration of capabilities that will define us as undeniable leaders in this domain.”
PDI Inc. describes itself as the largest independent sheetfed printing company in Quebec, providing services like premedia, offset, toner and large-format production, as well as Web-to-print, fulfillment, warehousing and direct-mail services to clients in Quebec, Canada and in the United States.
The PDI Group made its first major commitment to the large-format-printing sector in late-2014 by acquiring one of Quebec’s best know operations, Trans-Optique based in Montreal’s area of Pointe-Claire.
Based in Boisbriand, Quebec, Imagerie DB Inc., in addition to its extensive prepress background, has been focusing on the large-format-printing segment for more than 14 years. The company is led by President Benoit Paquette and Vice President Denis Paquette.
LVP.ca Inc. of Terrebonne, Quebec, is described as a large-format-print provider with a multifaceted approach, including services like design and installation. It has more than 20 years of experience in the sector.
“LVP’s proven strength and experience in creative conceptualizations and consultative approach to customer service will enable customers to utilize truly unique sign and display capabilities to empower their brands and communication strategies,” said Francis Tellier, President of LVP.ca Inc.
