Privately owned and located in Mississauga, Ont., Duroflex has operated for 22 years with a focus on delivering unique product solutions and service excellence with a sincere alignment to its customers’ distinct needs.
“Acquiring Duroflex will extend available solutions within our paper and specialty product segments, benefitting both companies’ customer and supply partners,” said Cory Turner, president of Spicers Canada.
Turner added that the acquisition of Duroflex fits with the organization’s strategy to continue to focus on its core strength as a respected partner to Canada’s graphic arts industry while identifying opportunities to expand its customer base and deliver comprehensive solutions across multiple product strategies.
