Paper supplier Spicers Canada has acquired All Graphic Supplies, a distributor of wide format and digital equipment, supplies and ink.
Spicers Canada is a distributor commercial print and business papers, graphic solutions, industrial packaging supplies, wide format and specialty products and is a division of New York–based Central National Gottesman, a sales and marketing organization in the global pulp, paper, packaging, tissue, wood products and metal industries.
The Mississauga, Ontario–based All Graphic Supplies operates seven locations across Canada and Trinidad and Tobago, and since 1992 has served as a distributor of solutions that supply multiple printing segments, including sign graphics, textiles, digital label and industrial ultraviolet (UV).
“The acquisition of All Graphic Supplies is another important step forward in diversifying the product categories in our North American distribution business,” says Andrew Wallach, CNG president and chief executive officer, in a statement. “We look forward to building on the strong foundation and success created by All Graphic Supplies in Canada and the Caribbean.”
Spicers Canada President Cory Turner added that the acquisition of All Graphic Supplies fits with his organization’s strategy to leverage its significant distribution capabilities in new ways.
“Acquiring All Graphic Supplies adds capabilities, experience and partnerships that are invaluable in meeting our company’s market strategy,” said Turner. “Extending product solutions both inside and outside of our core markets creates immediate opportunities that align well with our growth initiatives.”
All Graphic Supplies will operate as an independent division of Spicers Canada, working closely with Spicers’ existing operations and distribution network in Canada.
