Press Release: CJ Group Acquires Clixx Mailing Facility From WestRock
TORONTO – The C.J. Group of Companies is proud to announce the addition of Clixx, one of the top mailing facilities in Canada, to its roster of 30 companies. “This acquisition is a great fit for our ever-expanding group of companies,” said Jay Mandarino, President & CEO of the C.J. Group of Companies. “There is a lot of synergy between our two organizations. Quality and workmanship with exceptional service are paramount at both CJG and Clixx.”
According to Karl Broderick, Director of Strategic Projects for WestRock Canada, C.J. is “the perfect fit to take over this great team and business unit.” The acquisition adds a host of quality equipment and services to the group’s existing resources, increasing C.J.’s production capabilities and boosting its overall versatility. Clixx offers a full line of Direct Mail services such as Digital variable data printing and binding, in house data and postal technology, pick and pack, kitting and fulfillment, inserting, tipping, and many other customized services. “With direct mail increasing each year this will be a great addition and was the last missing link to having all solutions under one roof to better serve our clients.” said Jay Mandarino.
Clixx began in 1986 as A&T Mailing Services and quickly established itself as a premier mail house for charities, fundraisers, and many corporations. It steadily grew its services and clientele throughout the years and was most recently acquired by WestRock in January 2016.
Sherwin Abrazaldo, a Clixx veteran, will head up the Division and lead the move to its new home on 560 Hensall Circle. Over the next three months, the rest of the C.J. Graphics organization will also be relocating to the newly purchased 230,000 square foot state of the art facility. There will be no interruption to business during this time, and the move will make C.J. one of the only companies in North America with all 30 divisions operating in one facility.
