MONTREAL, QC, CANADA | Sun Chemical reinforced its commitment to customers in Montreal and the Province of Quebec with the opening of its new state-of-the-art ink manufacturing plant in Laval, a $3.1 million (CAD) investment designed to provide stronger customer service, improve efficiency, and reduce costs.
The 50,000-sq-ft facility consolidates four manufacturing plants located in Ottawa, Quebec City, and two buildings in the Montreal suburbs of Boucherville and Anjou, into one new manufacturing plant that will service the needs of customers primarily located in Montreal, Ottawa, and Quebec City areas.
The company says the single location in Laval is better positioned for getting through Montreal’s traffic patterns and delivering product to customers across Quebec and Eastern Ontario. The move to Laval also allows Sun Chemical to consolidate truck loads for deliveries, expedite routes, reduce carbon emissions, and save money on gas. The investment in Laval will help Sun Chemical meet many of its eco-efficiency goals by improving its carbon footprint and reducing expenses.
The Laval facility, which offers a variety of “green” benefits, will manufacture solvent inks, water-based inks, UV inks, and paste inks for the packaging, corrugated, sheetfed, heatset, and coldset markets. Also included will be an on-site lab for quality control and color matching.
