PUSLINCH, ONTARIO - Corrugated sheet converter Numatech Industries Inc. has expanded its screen-printing capabilities.
The Puslinch-based firm bought Anson Screen Printing Inc. of Waterloo, Ontario, for undisclosed terms. It will keep the nine-employee operation open as it does screen printing for corrugated sheet converted in Puslinch; Ottawa, Ill.; and Taylors, S.C. Numatech already had screen-printing capacity at its Fullerton, Calif., converting operation.
Numatech formerly relied on Anson and other firms to do screen printing for its eastern North America operations, said Numatech President Brent Vickery in a telephone interview. The Waterloo facility can handle all its needs in the east.
Numatech converts sheet into returnable and reusable packaging, signage, displays and advertising specialties. It is a subsidiary of sheet maker Matra Plast Industries Inc. of New York.
Anson formerly was owned by Pat and Murray Wills. Pat Wills will stay on during the transition of Anson becoming a division of Numatech.
