Sydney Stone (Mississauga, Ontario), a Morgana dealer since the early 1980s, has been recognized as the top dealer across the globe for Morgana digital finishing technology. With the growth in digital printing, Morgana has harnessed technology to eliminate cracking, automate set-up, and provide reliability with its creasing, folding and booklet-making equipment.

“The Morgana range of products has been highly sought after for its automation and ease of set-up, coupled with reliability,” said Michael Steele, co-owner of Sydney Stone. “In 2017, we found that, on top of Morgana’s already popular creasing and folding systems, our customers had a desire to also invest in Morgana’s latest booklet-making systems which feature an extremely high level of automation.”

“Sydney Stone has done a fine job for us for a number of years, and in 2017 they topped our list of Worldwide Dealers,” said Ray Hillhouse, General Manager of UK-based Morgana Systems. “We at Morgana want to thank them for their efforts in promoting Morgana products in Canada. We hope that the recent cUL approval of our PUR perfect binders, as well as the launch of our new AutoCut PRO slitter/cutter/creaser, will help them achieve growth in 2018 again.”

Sydney Stone was established in 1951, and since that time, has grown to become one of the premier Canadian distributors of print-finishing equipment and supplies throughout the world – importing and representing brands such as Morgana, MOHR, EBA, Vivid, Watkiss and Duplo, to name a few. With a focus on the short-run and medium-run printing markets, Sydney Stone offers solutions to the challenges found in this important industry segment.
