4over cuts ribbon on new plant
MISSISSAUGA—Trade printer 4over officially opened its newest plant in Mississauga on Tuesday, with staff and guests welcomed to the city by Mississauga's long-standing mayor, Hazel McCallion.

The mayor addressed the crowd on hand and said 4over is a welcome addition when the outlook in the industry is dipping. "Today, there's a negative feeling (in the industry)," she said. "But 4over is not laying off, they're expanding."

4over officials said the company is looking to expand across Canada in the future, noting the Mississauga plant houses about 35 employees currently and has a capacity for about 150 employees hired locally.

Guests were able to check out equipment at the new facility including a Komori Lithrone SX29 and HP 65500, but 4over staff noted more equipment is on its way including a 40" press, plastic-printing press and a flatbed large-format device.

The facility started production on Dec. 2 of last year, a few days ahead of schedule. The plant is headed up by Tom Hogan, who also spoke during the grand opening. Quick turnaround and delivery are key objectives, said Hogan, who noted 4over in Mississauga is considering widening its free delivery area to Kitchener and the Niagara area.
