Spicers Canada (Vaughan, Ontario), a leading distributor of commercial print and business papers, specialty products, graphic solutions, sign & display equipment, materials & industrial supplies, and packaging products, has announced that all of its divisions will now begin to operate under a single, powerful brand nationwide – Spicers.
Previously, in addition to Spicers in Canada, Shippers Supply and All Graphic Supplies operated as separate entities since being acquired in December of 2017 and February of 2020 respectively. Spicers Canada operates from 27 regional centres across the country.
Shippers Supply, a respected manufacturer and distributor of industrial supplies and packaging products, is based in Edmonton, Alberta and operates from nine locations across Western Canada. All Graphic Supplies, based in Mississauga, Ontario, is a leading distributor of media and turnkey equipment solutions for the sign graphics, textile, digital label and specialty-product market, and operates from six Canadian locations as well as the Caribbean (Trinidad and Tobago).
“Both Shippers Supply and All Graphic Supplies have proven incredibly beneficial additions to the company,” said Spicers Canada President Cory Turner. “Since their acquisitions, all three organizations have used the opportunity to not only fully understand all available solutions, resources and assets, but also to find ways to work collaboratively in the pursuit of unified success. With this change, our Canadian customers will enjoy full and easier access to everything the company has to offer, while creating brand clarity and simplicity that will ensure the experience with the company is reliable, consistent and recognizable – no matter which area of the country you live in. Customers will notice highly visible changes – including signage, trucks, websites and marketing materials – beginning to reflect the single brand in the first half of 2021,” Turner pointed out.
Jerry Pierce, Vice-President of Sales at Shippers Supply, added: “I’m excited we are creating a single brand that will provide many benefits for our customers, suppliers and most of all, our incredible employees!” Chris DeSouza, President of All Graphic Supplies, said: “We are excited to enhance our combined customer, supplier and team experiences as we optimistically look to the future.”
