Canada’s leading pressroom chemical manufacturer, Unigraph International, will be expanding its current production and warehouse facility in Delson, Quebec and has added Veritiv (formerly xpedx and Unisource) as an official Unigraph distributor in the U.S. While many in the printing and graphic arts industry here and south of the border are downsizing and outsourcing in order to stay competitive, family-owned Canadian company Unigraph International is headed in the opposite direction.
“We have always realized that the foundations of our success are the hard-working dealers and the printers here in Canada, particularly press operators who are familiar with our products and their capabilities,” said Unigraph International President John Thibault. “We continue to grow and acquire new business in Canada through our dedicated and loyal dealers. So a big ‘thank you’ to all of them for their ongoing and much appreciated support. This, in turn, has enabled us to grow quickly throughout the USA. So I’m delighted to announce that we’ll also be expanding our production and warehouse facility in Delson, Quebec this Fall to almost double our existing space to meet the increased demand for our products.”
Thibault also revealed that Unigraph’s new formulations on the market have also contributed to the company’s success here and south of the border. The latest rollout builds on the proven performance of its most popular products – fountain solutions, alcohol replacements and roller deglazer. They include new formulations specifically for DOP plates, HUV and LED inks.
One of the most notable successes for Unigraph is that Veritiv USA (formerly xpedx and Unisource), one of the largest distribution companies in the industry, is now an official Unigraph dealer. Veritiv has over 150 locations from coast to coast in the U.S. Veritiv joins Unigraph’s other U.S. dealers announced recently. They are: Rosmini Graphics Supply of Copiague, New York; Atlantic Graphic Systems of Columbia, Maryland; and Graphics IV of Oviedo, Florida. Combined, the three companies have over 85 years of service. The companies also join Unigraph’s current dealers south of the border – such as southern USA distributor, Innovative Graphic Solutions (IGS) of Montgomery, Alabama, who serves clients in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee and the Florida Panhandle.
