Transcontinental's Remi Marcoux Honored by Magazine
Press release from the issuing company
MONTREAL--Nov. 10, 2004-- Transcontinental's founder and Executive Chairman of the Board, Remi Marcoux, will be honoured this evening by Graphic Monthly magazine, which has selected him as its Printer of the Year. This is the third year the magazine has given the award, which will be presented to Mr. Marcoux at a reception at Toronto's Ryerson University, to which Transcontinental has been a major donor for the past five years.
Founded in 1976, Transcontinental has grown steadily from its humble beginnings. Today it is not only the seventh largest printer in North America, but also a well-known Canadian success story.
In accepting the award from Graphic Monthly's editor, Filomena Tamburri, Mr. Marcoux will express his optimism about the future of print: "I am certain that the printed word will long continue to play a major role in marketing plans and the daily lives of consumers. Just as television did not cause newspapers and radio to disappear, the new information technologies will simply complement and improve the media already available. Excellent business opportunities still await us in the printing industry and we at Transcontinental intend to take advantage of those that fit in with our long-term objectives."
Marcoux will also share the honour with the more than 14,000 employees who make up Transcontinental, reflecting, "in the business world, the men and women who put their hearts into making a company work deserve our respect, no matter where they are in the hierarchy."
