MONTREAL, Oct. 16 - Today, in Chicago, at the Graph Expo & Converting Expo trade fair, the founder and executive chairman of the board of Transcontinental, Remi Marcoux, was formally inducted into the Printing Impressions/RIT Printing Industry Hall of Fame. Sponsored by the magazine Printing Impressions and the Rochester Institute of Technology, the Hall of Fame has announced the addition of four new leaders from the printing industry every year for the past 21 years. Remi Marcoux is the second Canadian to receive this honour.
In his acceptance speech, Remi Marcoux thanked the organizers of the event and congratulated his three other co-inductees. Then he said: " This honour also goes to Transcontinental and all our employees. In fact, through me, you are paying tribute to them. While customers are the reason why companies are in business, employees are the reason for their success."
He ended with a strong vote of confidence in the future of the printing industry: "With the advent of new digital media, advertising personalization and technological change, the North American printing industry is going through a profound transformation. Globalization is another new reality that we have to deal with.
