Rhino Print Solutions Inc., headquartered in Richmond, British Columbia, acquired Marcam Cross Media Ltd. of Toronto, Ontario. The purchase gives Rhino, led by President and CEO David Allan, its first location in the Eastern Canadian market to better serve its national clients.
“Now, with operations in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto, we are uniquely positioned to provide high quality colour-managed print on demand solutions to Canadian businesses nation-wide,” stated David Allan. “We are fortunate to be inheriting such a high-caliber operation in Marcam.”
Founded in 1971, Marcam has evolved from its offset roots into a range of toner-based production, while focusing heavily on providing multi-channel print marketing and related analysis. This technological direction of Marcam fits with Rhino, which plans to build its new operation by emphasizing print on demand and multi-channel marketing .
“We are excited to be joining the award–winning Rhino team,” stated Matthew Marczak, President of Marcam. “We know for certain that our clients will admire Rhino’s relentless pursuit of quality and appreciate the new, broader national scope that is now achievable with an East to West print network.”
Rhino is one of Canada’s most-awarded printing operations, including its multiple-year achievements in the Canadian Printing Awards. Rhino received the Best of Show Award at the most recent Canadian Printing Awards event in 2012. The company has also received numerous awards in the Gallery of Superb Printing competition and the Premier Printing Awards, including multiple Benny Awards.
“This expansion and investment in our business reflects Rhino’s confidence in what we know to be a strong, healthy and continuous demand for higher quality, well-produced print marketing materials,” stated Allan. “Today’s online, electronic marketplace requires print support that has a strong and appropriate stand-out effect.”
