Gilmore Reproductions (Ottawa, Ontario) has significantly upgraded its wide-format capabilities with a new Jeti Mira 2732 LED Wide-Format Printer from Afga Graphic Systems Canada. Gilmore Reproductions has been serving the needs of the design and AEC communities in the Ottawa area since 1983. With its roots in the AEC community, the company began with six people and quickly grew over the past 35 years to a group of companies (all under the R.E. Gilmore Investments Corporation umbrella) consisting of over 600 employees. Its original division, Gilmore Reproductions, is still serving the Ottawa region with a facility in Kingston, Ontario. Both locations offer a variety of services that include construction-plan printing, scanning services, large-format and small-format printing, and much more. Its large-format printing division continues to grow rapidly with interior and exterior wall graphics and signage, as well as custom finishing and installations. The acquisition puts the company in a position to become a Canadian leader in the large-format printing market.
