TC Transcontinental Printing invests $ 10 million in book printing platform – covering printing inks, coatings and related industries


TC Impressions Transcontinental, a part of Transcontinental Inc., has invested more than $ 10 million over the past eight months in its book printing platform in Quebec, mainly at its Transcontinental Interglobe plant in Beauce.

These investments have enabled the plant to improve its manufacturing efficiency to better meet the demand of North American customers and the rapid delivery times expected by the market, while reducing its environmental footprint.

“These major investments demonstrate our confidence in the future of the North American book market and our desire to build our printing platform in growing verticals like this one,” said Jacques Grégoire, Head of Development , Printing and Media at TC Transcontinental. “The timing is favorable for these investments with the signing of several contract extensions and new agreements with major educational publishers. They will allow us to remain competitive in the market and accept larger jobs to continually meet the growing demand from our customers.

Most of the investments were made to purchase robotic equipment installed in the binding and bagging departments to increase production capacity and speed while reducing dependence on local labor given the labor constraints in the region.

Money has also been allocated to modernize color systems on web presses and sheetfed presses to improve registration control and color reproduction, thereby achieving the quality and end result the customer wants more quickly.

In 2019, a study indicated that the global book printing market is expected to reach values ​​of around $ 49 billion by 2024.

As the largest printer in Canada, these investments will allow TC Impressions Transcontinental to benefit from the growth in the book market and maintain its leadership position in the industry.

TC Transcontinental Printing has a network of 14 plants in Canada and employs approximately 4,150 people.

The industry offers innovative printing solutions for flyers, in-store marketing products, newspapers, magazines and 4-color books.
