St. Joseph Communications to Open New World-Class Facility, Creating Largest Print Communications Campus in Canada

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 4, 2009) - St. Joseph Print, a division of St. Joseph Communications, announced today its plans to open a new 140,000-square-foot print facility in Concord, Ontario.

Bringing together the best in high-quality offset and digital print capabilities, St. Joseph will move its current Toronto - Thorn and Richmond Hill locations into the new facility and add state-of-the-art equipment as part of a $25 million investment in the latest print technology.

"Customizing a new facility will enable us to fully leverage the incredible technological advancements available to our industry today," says John Gagliano, President of St. Joseph Print and Documents. "Looking back at our company's 53-year history, we believe this is another one of those bold defining moments that will set St. Joseph apart and enable us to move into the undisputed top spot of the Canadian print industry when it comes to innovation and service."

The move will allow St. Joseph to offer a blend of offset printing, print-on-demand, intelligent insertion, lettershop printing, document finishing, large-format printing and web-to-print tools all under one roof.

The new facility will be ideally situated next to St. Joseph Print's existing 300,000-square-foot operation. Specializing in the commercial printing of magazines, catalogues and flyers, it recently underwent a $50 million revitalization to make it one of the most sophisticated production facilities in North America. Combined, the two facilities will create a 17-acre print communications campus - the largest in Canada.

"Not only will our new campus be unique - so too will be our overall approach in servicing customers," says Gagliano. "We're changing the way we go to market to enhance flexibility, efficiency and value for our customers. By offering a unique combination of offset and digital solutions from one combined campus, we can effectively service all of the market's print needs from a single point of contact."

Located at 119 Snow Boulevard in Concord, Ontario, St. Joseph Print's new facility is scheduled to open in fall 2009.
