RP Graphics Group Ltd. and Rhino Print Solutions Inc. have formed what the companies describe as a "strategic alliance designed to deliver coast to coast print solutions."
The alliance between the two companies results in RP Graphics agreeing to acquire and integrate Rhino's Toronto operations effective September 22, 2014. Rhino’s Toronto facility, formerly Marcam Cross Media Limited, provides print-on-demand and services for multi-channel communications.
“This alliance is a significant step for both of our companies and great news for our customers,” stated David Allan, President and CEO of Rhino. “Our newly combined technology platform and geographic reach through modern facilities in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto will allow us to provide an efficient and seamless service offering across Canada.”
RP Graphics, located in Mississauga, Ontario, has a staff of over 140 employees, operating out of two production facilities. Its CEO, George Mazzaferro, was named Printing Leader of the Year by PrintAction magazine in 2013 (featured in PrintAction's February 2014 issue).
“This alliance is about meeting client needs and doing it better and faster," stated Mazzaferro. “As we grow, more and more of our clients are national in scope… David and I have been friendly competitors for some time and we share a common vision when it comes to print services; it's all about meeting client needs.”
Rhino Print Solutions is a privately held company based in Vancouver, BC. The company is a perennial award winner with manufacturing plants in Vancouver and Calgary, Alberta.
