Spicers Canada, a distributor of graphics, sign solutions, and industrial packaging supplies, has announced all its divisions will now operate under a single brand—Spicers.
Previously, in addition to Spicers in Canada, Shippers Supply and All Graphic Supplies operated as separate entities since their acquisition in December 2017 and February 2020, respectively.
Shippers Supply, which is based in Edmonton, operates from nine locations and is a respected manufacturer and distributor of industrial supplies and packaging products across western Canada. All Graphic Supplies, based in Mississauga, Ont., is a distributor of media and turnkey equipment solutions to the sign graphics, textile, digital label, and specialty product market, operating from six Canadian locations as well as the Caribbean (Trinidad and Tobago).
“Both Shippers Supply and All Graphic Supplies have proven incredibly beneficial additions to the company,” said Spicers Canada’s president, Cory Turner. “Since their acquisitions, all three organizations have used the opportunity to not only fully understand all available solutions, resources, and assets, but also find ways to work collaboratively in the pursuit of unified success.”
Jerry Pierce, Shippers Supply’s sales vice-president added, “I’m excited we are creating a single brand that will provide many benefits for our customers, suppliers and, most of all, our incredible employees!”
“We are excited to enhance our combined customer, supplier, and team experiences as we optimistically look to the future,” said All Graphic Supplies’ president, Chris DeSouza.
Turner said with this change, their Canadian customers will enjoy full and easier access to everything the company has to offer while creating brand clarity and simplicity that will ensure the experience with the company is reliable, consistent, and recognizable—no matter where people live. Significant changes, including signage, trucks, websites, and marketing materials, will begin to reflect the single brand in the first half of 2021.
