Canadian trade-only printing leader SinaLite celebrated its 21st year in business (as of January, 2020)  with a special Open House celebration last week. Operating from its head office and production facility in Markham, Ontario and led by President Mike Meshkati and Vice Presdient Brian Meshkati, SinaLite has now partnered with over 10,000 businesses! In 1999, Mike’s and Brian’s parents, Oscar and Fara, launched their printing business with a small one-colour offset press in a modest 1,200-sq.-ft. shop. The couple printed flyers, NCR forms and other basic products. Soon they were able to purchase a two-colour A.B. Dick, followed by a four-colour Heidelberg Speedmaster – and the rest, as they say, is history.

Today, SinaLite serves all of North America from its 100,000-sq.-ft. facility and has invested over $20 million in state-of-the-art equipment and technology. It provides more than 1,000 profit-boosting product options to print brokers, print shops, graphic designers, ad agencies, sign shops and more. This year SinaLite plans to expand once again, launching a new apparel-printing division, as well as improving its already highly successful roll-label printing capabilities – and more expansion is on the horizon. Congratulations to family-owned SinaLite on their continued success.
