Spicers Canada, a division of Central National Gottesman (CNG – Purchase, New York) has announced that it’s acquired All Graphic Supplies, expanding its position in the distribution of wide-format and digital printing equipment, print supplies and inks. Privately owned and headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, All Graphic Supplies operates seven locations across Canada and the Caribbean (Trinidad and Tobago), and since 1992 has served as a leading distributor of solutions that supply multiple printing segments – including sign graphics, textiles, digital label and industrial ultraviolet (UV). Spicers Canada is a leading distributor of quality commercial print and business papers, graphic solutions, industrial packaging supplies, wide-format and other specialty products.
Spicers Canada President Cory Turner pointed out that the acquisition fits well with his organization’s strategy to leverage its significant distribution capabilities in bold new ways. “Acquiring All Graphic Supplies adds capabilities, experience and partnerships that are invaluable in meeting our company’s market strategy,” he said. “Extending product solutions both inside and outside of our core markets creates immediate opportunities that align well with our growth initiatives.”
Andrew Wallach, CNG President and Chief Executive Officer, added: “The acquisition of All Graphic Supplies is another important step forward in diversifying the product categories in our North American Distribution business. We look forward to building on the strong foundation and success created by All Graphic Supplies in Canada and the Caribbean.” All Graphic Supplies will operate as an independent division of Spicers Canada, working closely with Spicers’ existing operations and distribution network across Canada.
