More than 130 print companies generated in excess of $10 billion in 2013. That’s what our Gold List 2014 reveals. The Gold list is a ranking of the largest printing companies in Canada based on sales volumes and compiled with information submitted by print shops themselves and data we have gathered on our own.

Assembling this list is a hefty undertaking but it’s not an exact science. And we confess up front that we may have holes in our data, or may have made some miscalculations in our estimates. We strive each year to refine our methods and our results. But in general, the list provides a good “big picture” look at the industry and some of the trends that are shaping it. So, here’s a list of what we see happening out there.

Transcontinental Inc. has announced that it will close its Concord printing plant in Ontario and its Edmonton plant in Alberta by the end of December 2014. 

"We are always looking at possible solutions to maximize our print platform," said Jacques Grégoire, president of the printing division of Transcontinental. "Our recent analyses have led us to close the Concord and Edmonton facilities in order to consolidate our production in state-of-the-art plants which will increase our efficiency and utilisation rate. In light of the current market environment, we are pursuing our review and are examining various options to continue responding appropriately to demand while remaining cost-effective for our customers." 

Jennifer McCaughey, senior director, investor relations and external corporate communications, said the two plants print retail flyers and the work will be transferred to other plants in Transcontinental’s network in Ontario and western Canada, depending on customers’ needs.
  
The plant closures will put 120 staff employees out of work and Transcontinental states it will help them during their transition to find new employment.  >>

Staples Canada has announced an expansion to its partnership with Bullfrog Power—a green energy provider—to include four copy and print production locations. They are in Burnaby, BC; Mississauga, ON; Laval QC and Calgary.

“Staples has the capability to do print jobs both at the stores and at print hubs,” Shaun Lewis, vice president, sales at Bullfrog Power said. “The jobs at the print hubs are generally sent there because they’re larger and more complex so they typically can’t be done at a store. ”

Ten locations, including the Staples Canada and Staples Advantage head offices have been bullfrog-powered with clean energy since April 2013.  >>
