August 25, 2023 By PrintAction Staff
The federal government invests $1.3 million in Simpson Print, Bloomingdale, Ont., so they can develop more products with advanced equipment, enhance their sustainable printing processes, and create 15 full-time jobs.
Family-owned Simpson Print is a leading player in sustainable print manufacturing and provides an extensive range of print manufacturing capabilities for events, displays and in-store signage. This investment will allow the company to future-proof its Bloomingdale facility by adding new digital technologies, including new greening features and processes, such as UV LED curing, that will allow the company to reduce its use of hazardous chemicals, improve its carbon footprint, and support the recycling of 100 per cent of its waste.
By integrating these improvements, Simpson Print will also be able to provide more in-house, end-to-end, green solutions that will help attract new retail opportunities. As a result, the company will be able to enhance its competitiveness, expand into new markets, both in Canada and the U.S., and reduce up to 1 ton of printing waste annually.
The investment was made through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario).
“Family-owned Simpson Print is demonstrating the strength of Canadian products and practices while boosting its competitiveness and decreasing its carbon footprint. Our government is committed to supporting our businesses as they adopt sustainable solutions, increase their production capabilities and create quality jobs for Canadians,” said Filomena Tassi, minister responsible for FedDev Ontario.
“For over 60 years, Simpson Print has been driving solutions in display manufacturing across North America. Through this investment from FedDev Ontario, Simpson Print will drive more jobs, more growth and more automation than ever before,” added Carla Johanns, president, Simpson Print.
