Sydney Stone is pleased to announce that November 2021 marks its 70th year in operation. The company was founded in Toronto in 1951 by Sydney R. Stone, selling binders, cutters and small format presses.
Since its inception in 1951, Sydney Stone has changed ownership several times. First, it was bought by Harry Day and Shirley McKay in 1980. They in turn sold the company to David & Dorothy Marsh in 1989, who was ultimately responsible for hiring now-owners Michael Steele and Dylan Westgate, who purchased the business from David and Dorothy in 2008.
“We find it very interesting; the printing industry is always evolving,” said Dylan. “As a company with 70 years of history, we are proud of the accomplishments of our predecessors and look forward to continue being a part of the future of Sydney Stone.”
Their 70th anniversary marks the 2nd milestone decade they’ve celebrated since they took over the business in 2008. “Time really flies,” laughs Michael, “Dylan and I both feel like we’ve done a lot with the company since we took it on, and we hope to continue our strategy of growth and improvement going forward.”
