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.

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.  >>

General Printers filed a motion of intent to make a proposal to restructure under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act. The motion was filed on Friday, PrintCAN has learned. According to industry sources, some sales reps and customer service reps have moved to the Lowe Martin Group at its Mississauga location, but PrintCAN has confirmed that president, Wayne Moir, is now at Lowe Martin. Only a handful of employees remain at the General Printers location. 

Staff was apparently notified in late afternoon on Friday that the company was "bankrupt" and they should not come back to work.

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.  >>

It can be a long trek to east Scarborough, but well worth it if you’re looking to take a trip back in printing. East Scarborough—a former borough of Toronto—is where you’ll find Don Black Linecasting Service Ltd., an old-school printer’s dream where linotypes, Ludlows, and other ornate iron presses from a by-gone era rest in a threeroom warehouse. And there, shuffling around the shop, is 77-year-old Don Black himself. Looking for something in particular? He’s bound to have it. It’s quite likely that if anyone bought a letterpress machine in recent years, they bought it from Don Black. >>

CHALLENGE: Keeping that edge
Taylor Printing Group began operations in the winter of 2005. Following a few years of dramatic consolidation for the Maritimes’ printing industry, a number of former owners and executives with a combined 150 years of industry experience decided to form a new company, building its staff with the best employees from a recently closed facility in Fredericton. The group saw opportunities in the Maritimes, and knew that companies based outside of the region didn’t understand the needs of Atlantic Canada. >>
