Spicers Paper US and Coast Paper to offer GMG products through Sonor Graphics

Friday, March 05, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Hingham, MA – GMG Americas, the US office of Germany-based GMG GmbH & Co. KG, developer and supplier of high-end color management and proofing solutions, announces that it has expanded its reseller network in North America with the addition of Coast Paper in Canada and Spicers US in the western United States-both part of PaperlinX, the world's leading international fine paper distributor - through GMG's distributor, Sonor Graphics, Inc.

Headquartered in Vaughan, Ontario, Coast Paper has offices in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec. Close working relationships with leading graphics equipment manufacturers, software developers and print customers ensures Coast Paper remains current on systems and consumables.  Spicers US has over 400 employees, serving the commercial print community in nearly all major markets west of the Rockies and in selected markets in the Midwest serving thousands of customers every day. Spicers US offers unbiased access to both domestic and internationally manufactured products. The PaperlinX North American Technical Services Group can quickly and effectively resolve any technical issues, and delivers a comprehensive range of premium quality digital graphic arts solutions that reflect the most advanced technology from the industry's foremost manufacturers.

Both companies will work through Sonor Graphics, Inc., a Quebec, Canada-based distributor.  Earlier this year, Sonor began distributing the entire portfolio of GMG color management and proofing solutions, including software and media, throughout Canada. Sonor serves commercial printing, digital printing and package printing customers via its network of regional and national authorized graphic arts resellers.

"We believe that the GMG Americas line of color management and proofing solutions is an exceptional fit for Spicers," comments Jason E. Hamilton, Director of PreMedia Solutions & Technical Services, PaperlinX North America. "With a full line of traditional pressroom supplies, ranging from cleaning products to plates, blankets, inks and chemistry-and now armed with products such as GMG ColorProof, GMG ColorServer, GMG InkOptimizer and GMG PrintControl-both Spicers US and Coast Paper can help printers maintain complete control of the entire production process."

"Our network of resellers throughout Canada and the U.S. has been extended with Sonor Graphics' help and the addition of Paperlinx North America as a reseller," remarks James Summers, President of GMG Americas. "Sonor Graphics provides a significant, new distribution model to GMG Americas to help bring our product line to the market. Meanwhile, Spicers has extensive, trusted relationships within prepress and press departments throughout Canada and the western portion of the US. Together, we all can help print providers understand and manage color better."
