Vaughan, Ont. – Spicers Canada (a division of Central National Gottesman-CNG), a leading distributor of paper and specialty products, graphics and sign solutions, and industrial packaging supplies to the Canadian market, announced today that all divisions will begin to operate under a single brand – Spicers.

"Both Shippers Supply and All Graphic Supplies have proven incredibly beneficial additions to the company," said Spicers Canada President Cory Turner. "Since their acquisitions, all three organizations have used the opportunity to not only fully understand all available solutions, resources and assets, but also find ways to work collaboratively in the pursuit of unified success."
Jerry Pierce, VP Sales -Shippers Supply, added, "I am excited we are creating a single brand that will provide many benefits for our customers, suppliers and most of all our incredible employees!"

Turner adds that with this change, our Canadian customers will enjoy full and easier access to everything the company has to offer while creating brand clarity and simplicity that will ensure the experience with the company is reliable, consistent and recognizable no matter which area of the country you live in. Customers will notice highly visible changes, including signage, trucks, websites and marketing materials beginning to reflect the single brand in the first half of 2021.
