TC Transcontinental Printing announces a $15 million investment in its book printing platform at its Transcontinental Beauceville (Interglobe) plant in Quebec, to better meet demand in the North American market. This is in addition to a $10 million investment in 2019-2020. With these investments, including an additional press in operation since early June, the plant has doubled its hardcover binding capacity and increased its production capacity by approximately 15%, all while improving manufacturing efficiency. Moreover, the new equipments will help alleviate the labor shortage in the region thanks to their high degree of automation and robotization.
Worzalla, an employee-owned book printer, partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Portage County to help local youth celebrate National Book Lovers Day. Worzalla associates and Boys & Girls Club of Portage County members hosted three group reading sessions across three Stevens Point area locations.
“National Book Lovers Day gives people an opportunity to celebrate the impact literature has on education and storytelling across the world,” said Rich Letchinger, Vice President of Sales and Chief Marketing Officer at Worzalla. “Worzalla is committed to encouraging reading among community youth and our group reading sessions were a great way to inspire youth to read while sharing and discussing their favorite books.”
Worzalla associates read classic stories out loud to 40-plus youth attendees including, Wisconsin author and illustrator Kevin Henkes’ “Chrysanthemum.” In addition, Worzalla’s big blue book mascot Paige Turner distributed free books and greeted youth before and after the reading sessions.
