Transcontinental closing Spot Graphics plant in Winnipeg
WINNIPEG—Transcontinental is closing its Spot Graphics printing plant in Winnipeg by the end of the year, with a plan to transfer operations to its PLM plant in Toronto.

In a press release May 25, Transcontinental said 20 employees left the Winnipeg plant this morning and about 20 remain to "handle the book of business in accordance with the transfer plan."

Transcontinental PLM has "benefited from major investments" to improve its efficiency and production capacity, said the company.

"Customers' needs are changing, both in terms of technology and the expertise required to carry out their projects. This has led us to invest more in our platform and to focus on specific centres of excellence," said Patrice Lacoste, Senior Vice President, Marketing Products Group, Transcontinental Printing. "With this transfer, the corporation will be able to offer its customers highly efficient and state-of-the-art technology under one roof."

The employees affected will receive separation packages and out-placement services to help them quickly find new jobs, noted the release.
