Holland & Crosby Limited acquires Colormark Limited
MISSISSAUGA—Holland & Crosby Limited has acquired the assets of Colormark Limited, a screen printing company in the Mississauga/GTA area. The transaction was completed on January 1, 2016, and production began on Jan. 4.

Colormark is a family-run business that has been in operation for over 40 years.

“We were attracted to the opportunity because of Colormark’s longstanding history of excellence and service, its legacy of being environmentally responsible long before it was common, and their talented people,” Scott Crosby, H&C VP of sales & marketing said. “We felt the combination was a great fit for Holland & Crosby.”

Both companies are now located at a new 70,000 sq. ft. site close to both original facilities. The companies have recently purchased two Inca onset presses from Fujifilm: the X1 with a special orange ink configuration and the X3 press, with three banks of CMYK and a 5 x 10’ vacuum bed and output of over 9000sf/ hr. They claim it’s the first press of its kind to be installed in North America and only the second worldwide.

Holland & Crosby has also replaced its existing cutting table with two new Kongsberg C Series 10 x 10 tables from Esko that are expected to run 2.5 times faster. The company predicts these new investments will generate as much as 50% improvement in throughtput. They plan to transition Colormark’s existing work to this new equipment offering in their new consolidated facility. H&C will host an open house in May to demo the new equipment and highlight the updated facility.
