Printcrafters Inc.: Combining Plants to Provide Huge Benefits for Clients and Stability for Employees

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - March 13, 2009) - Printcrafters Inc., one of the country's largest independent sheetfed printing organizations, today announced the acquisition of Globally Boundless, a leading provider of integrated marketing solutions and web-to-print technology. Together the group of companies are nearly $30 million in sales and 175 employees.

"We are truly excited about the addition of the Globally Boundless team; they are a perfect complement to our mission," says Bob Payne, President of Printcrafters. "The added value we can continue to bring our clients helps solidify our values of integrity, reliability and trust." The 40 employees have unique skills derived from a culture of helping clients grow. Globally Boundless has a 35 year history focusing on direct marketing execution. With printing and finishing equipment connected directly to the highly advanced Marketing Engine technology, Globally Boundless has deployed seamless marketing strategies for companies throughout North America. "The Marketing Engine, which we now can deploy across all our clients, will help companies survive these economic conditions," continues Payne. "Immediately, we transition beyond being a great printer and into being a high valued partner."

Boyd Liski, President of Globally Boundless will remain at the helm, but will add a new role as VP, Sales & Marketing of Printcrafters Group of Companies. "The combination of these two companies will give each and every employee more power and stability in this recession," says Liski. "Marketing budgets have been pummelled in the past four months, and we searched for a strategic partnership to ensure our clients and our team are cared for. With Printcrafters we can now offer that security." Liski's role will be to integrate these companies and articulate the value to the client base across North America.
