U.S. super trade printer 4Over coming to Toronto
TORONTO—In a move that’ll likely shake up the printing industry, American uber trade printer, 4Over says it is ready to set up operations in Toronto. In an e-mail interview with PrintCAN, a company spokesperson said 4Over will be operational in mid-2011. Though he would not divulge many details about the plan in progress, he did say the company has identified a “building” and is finalizing its plans.

Asked what attracted 4Over to Canada, the rep wrote that the company has a loyal following here and it has experienced growth in its Canadian client base. The move to Toronto will allow the company to “provide our Canadian customers with faster turnarounds,” he wrote.

The company, little known in Canada, has been a major force in the U.S. printing industry over the last few years. Founded in 2003 by Zarik Megerdichian in Glendale, California, 4Over has grown substantially and quickly. It now has operations in Dayton, OH, Arlington, TX, Miami Gardens, FL, Moonachie, NJ, and Chicago. Besides Toronto, it has plans to open facilities in Phoenix and Seattle, followed later with Boston and Orlando. Equipment includes a full stable of Komori sheetfed presses.

A look at the company site reveals a self described “super trade printer” that offers a wide range of printed products. Grand-format offerings were added in 2009. The company has built its reputation on low prices and fast turnaround, with a specialty focus on short-run orders, according to its website. It claims a client base of almost 59,000 print brokers, graphic designers, quick printers, and photographers.

Stay tuned for more developments.
