Topline Printing Acquisition


The Burke Group Difference:
Finding the right technology to serve you better.

The Burke Group continues the quest for expansion with their latest acquisition of Topline Printing in Calgary. The purchase is yet another indication that Burke is serious about their growth and investment into the Alberta marketplace.

“Topline Printing started in 1982 and is now the largest independent offset printer
in Calgary,” says Ian Burke, owner and CEO of the Burke Group. “They’ve grown by understanding the needs of their customers and the market, by purchasing the right technology at the right time, and by realizing competitive opportunities.

“They’ve invested in full service mailing, large format, foiling and box-cutting facilities to provide a well-rounded offering for their customers,” Burke continues, regarding his group’s exciting new acquisition. “Their success is underlined by an impressive client-retention track record — they’re still servicing many of their original clients from the early 80’s.”

Fernando Peris, founder of Topline Printing, will retire upon the successful transition to the Burke Group of Companies. “I had a few options and after careful consideration, I’m excited to pass the baton,” says Peris. “I’m confident that our internal teams and customers will benefit from Burke’s sophistication and business process that makes it easier for customers to get what they need.”

The Burke Group is committed to investing in the economy and consistently bringing new technologies to you. This is the Burke Group difference.
