Spicers Canada announces several operational investments that enhance available resources for customers in multiple markets.
In June, Spicers will complete the construction of a new facility to serve the Montreal market. The newly built 80,000-sf distribution centre in Anjou, Que., will support the company’s efforts in delivering service to its current customers while extending reach into new markets.
Additionally, Spicers confirms that later this year its All Graphic Supplies division, currently based in Mississauga, Ont., will be integrated into the Spicers Vaughan, Ont., location. In conjunction with this move, an expanded demo/technology centre, equipment service department and resource centre will be constructed. This expansion will prove valuable in the representation of its current offering from suppliers such as Kodak, Actega, Unigraph, Roland, Mimaki and Epson as well as new solutions like HP’s Latex R Printer series and Fujifilm’s offset printing plate portfolio. Spicers was recently appointed as an authorized dealer for both.
The expansion of demo centre capabilities adds to similar initiatives underway in Calgary, Alta., and Edmonton. In Spicers locations in Quebec City, Que., and Vancouver, new onsite ink mixing facilities, supplied exclusively through Huber, have been completed and are available to customers.
Later this year, construction will begin on a new facility in Regina, Sask. It will combine the currently independent operations for Spicers and its Shippers Supply division. The new facility is expected to be fully operational in Q1 2022.
Spicers Canada president Cory Turner said, “These significant investments are further evidence of our deepening commitment to the customers and supply partners we serve. We are proud to be in the position to make these types of commitments and look forward to the meaningful impact they have in enhancing our ability to deliver the reliability that customers can trust.”
Earlier this year it was announced that from July 1, 2021, all Canadian operations including Shippers Supply and All Graphic Supplies would be combined into operations under a single brand – Spicers.
