    Alain Jacques, Solisco Printers

    Spotlight Q&A: Alain Jacques, Solisco Printers, Scott, Quebec

    This past May, Solisco Printers marked its 25-year anniversary after the company was founded in 1991 by Alain Jacques and Jean Grégoire. The company initially focused on the publishing market, which remains a core business generating around 35 percent of its annual revenues, and more recently has expanded into the retail industry with the goal of serving niche vertical markets with catalogues and a range of related services from digital adaptations to distribution. In 2011, Solisco initiated a new phase of investment with the installation of a Goss Sunday 3000 web press in its 200,000-square-foot plant. PrintAction spoke with Jacques about the past 25 years and what the future holds for Solisco. >> Read More
