Mitchell Press launches Pacific Bindery trade bindery services
Following Pacific Bindery Services Ltd. (PBS) ceasing its operations in September 2020, Burnaby, BC-based Mitchell Press (Mitchell) acquired key equipment, experienced personnel, capabilities and trademark rights. Now, Mitchell is launching a new trade finishing division, called “Pacific Bindery, a division of Mitchell.”
According to Scott Gray, Mitchell’s VP of sales and marketing, this move provides Pacific Bindery with complete independence from the rest of the company’s commercial operations.
“It is our intent to continue to provide British Columbia and Alberta print communicators the same level of service, confidence and quality finishing they have grown to expect,” he said. “Some of the services that will be provided include perfect binding (digital and offset), saddle stitching, coil and wire-o-binding, cutting, folding, glue-folding, tipping, shrink-wrapping, padding, drilling and neighbourhood mail preparation for commercial print communicators.”
“We have created an independent trade-specific production division, Pacific Bindery, to provide exceptional trade bindery and finishing work to our print community,” Gray continued. “While our industry grapples with the rapidly changing marketplace, we felt it important that we continue providing these essential services, safely, confidentially, and securely, for our print community.”
“While this acquisition comes during challenging times, our organization continues to grow. We now have the benefit of complete manufacturing independence. This allows us to reduce our client’s carbon footprint, expand their options, keep their costs predictable, and under control,” Gray added. “We feel fortunate to be able to reliably help fill a trade bindery void in our industry. So, when you now place an order with Pacific Bindery, you are working with the same experts who are working on the same equipment, producing the same exceptional results that the print market has come to expect.”
