Nu-Foilprint Inc. is a fully equipped contract decorator serving clients throughout Canada and the United States.
Founded in 1988 by the mother and son team of Monique David and Marc David. The company started with one small hand operated hot stamping machine that they set-up in a two bedroom apartment they shared a couple of blocks from the old Montreal Forum in downtown Montreal.
In those early days, the company’s client base included commercial printers that outsourced their hot stamping needs for business stationary. One year after the initial start-up, the business moved to a small 200 square foot commercial space. This allowed the company to purchase an air operated hot stamping machine that required an air compressor.
In 1991, Monique David became ill and subsequently passed away in December of 1991. Upon the passing of their mother, Marc’s sister Martine decided to leave her managerial job with an electronics equipment testing company to assist her brother Marc to continue building the company.
In 1992, the company purchased their first pad printing machine. By that time, company had three hot stamping machines serving commercial printers as well as a handful of manufacturers that required hot stamping on their plastic parts.
The move into pad printing turned out to be a good one for the company. In 1997, the company landed its largest contract to date from a large telecommunications company. The contract required the pad printing and packaging of over 7 million parts. The company’s payroll mushroomed from 8 employees to 38 as a result of this order.
By 2000, the company had outgrown its 4,000 square foot facility and moved to its current location in Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Quebec, on the west island of Montreal. This facility totals 16,200 square feet including 10,000 square feet of warehouse space.
In 2002, the company obtained an establishment license from Health Canada in order to provide product decorating and packaging to the cosmetics industry. Every year, this license is renewed and assures clients that the company follows Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
