Printful, an on-demand fulfillment company, will be opening a 2,900-square-metre facility in Mississauga, Ont., with production expected to start by the end of 2020. This will be Printful’s first Canadian facility and seventh worldwide. Printful’s initial investment will be CAD$2.8 million. The company is planning to grow its Canadian team to 50 people in its first three years of operation.
Canada is Printful’s second-largest market after the U.S. With the new facility, the company aims to improve logistics and the overall experience for Canadian store owners and customers. It is estimated that the new facility will shorten shipping time from 9 days to 2 days in Ontario, and 4 days in most other provinces. In addition, orders will not have to go through customs or be charged import duties.
“We’re continuing to expand internationally and grow our competitive advantage. We already have a large customer base in Canada and with domestic fulfillment, we see the potential to establish ourselves as a key player,” said Davis Siksnans, Printful’s CEO.
Printful will start by fulfilling direct-to-garment (DTG) and embroidered hats and apparel. The selection of Printful products available for the Canadian market is expected to develop over time.
Printful worked closely with Invest in Canada and Toronto Global to help find a fulfillment location and expand their business into Canada.
“With one of the most highly skilled and diverse workforces in the world, Mississauga is a top destination for business and talent,” said Mississauga Mayor, Bonnie Crombie. “Printful’s investment is a testament to Mississauga’s strong position on the innovation corridor and the attractiveness of our city to international companies. I’m delighted to welcome Printful to Mississauga’s growing and innovative business community!”
Printful is searching for an operations manager to help launch and lead the new facility. All interested candidates are invited to apply here.
