Complimenting OEC’s strategy to pursue West Coast opportunities, OEC Graphics announces the opening of its newest facility, “OEC Vancouver." Located on Mitchell Island in Richmond, British Columbia, across the Fraser River from Vancouver, this facility offers full-service platemaking and mounting capabilities to service the Greater Pacific Northwest market.

Concentrating on a few OEC specialties, namely graphics coordination, high definition digital platemaking and corrugated mounting services, this division of OEC is poised for growth, the company reports. Brad Vette, corporate director of business development, explains the strategy: “OEC is thrilled to have a Canadian operation. We have had a vested interest in Western Coastal Canada with some long-term partners in the region, so it made sense for us to make further investment.”
