Sun Chemical Opens New Ink Manufacturing Facility in Montreal


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 square foot facility consolidates four manufacturing plants located in Ottawa, Quebec City, and two buildings located in the Montreal suburbs of Boucherville and Anjou, into one brand new manufacturing plant that will service the needs of customers primarily located in the Montreal, Ottawa and Quebec City areas.
The move to Laval allows Sun Chemical to consolidate truck loads for deliveries, expedite routes, reduce carbon emissions and save money on gas. Currently under application to become a LEED-certified building, the investment in Laval will help Sun Chemical meet many of its eco-efficiency goals by improving its carbon footprint and reducing expenses.
“We are affirming our commitment to the Quebec and the Canadian market with this investment,” said Rod Staveley, president of Sun Chemical Canada. “Sun Chemical plans to be in this business for the long term and is providing the infrastructure needed to deliver best in class services to our valued customers. Our new facility reduces costs, improves productivity, and enables continuing high service levels for our customers.”
