Fisher Textiles Announces Expansion into Canada with a New Distribution Center and Partnership with TG Graphics

Fisher Textiles, one of the leading suppliers of fabrics for digital printing, is pleased to announce expansion into Canada with a new distribution center 
that will stock many of Fisher’s most popular styles.  Benefits to Canadian customers include faster delivery time, decreased shipping costs, same day

Fisher already sells to a variety of world class printing businesses in Canada. “We’ve decided to expand our distribution capabilities into Canada to get 
our material closer to our Canadian customers,” says Scott Fisher, president of Fisher Textiles. Fisher adds, “Having Canadian partners helps us 
understand the market place and enables us to do a better job servicing the needs of our Canadian customers.” 

“We choose to work with a distribution partner to insure our service levels and shipping capabilities would be in line with our customer expectations,” says 
Larry Fisher Jr., VP of International Sales. “Accord Transportation is a first class distribution business, serving all parts of Canada from its location in 
Mississauga, Ontario. Accord Transportation will be a great addition for our customers that have just in time requirements. In some cases, it will be 
practical to ship directly from the states—especially when time is less of a factor. We will be stocking many popular styles in Mississauga. As customer 
demand dictates, we will add to our product mix.” 

In addition to the distribution and logistics expertise provided by Accord Transportation, Fisher Textiles is partnering with TG Graphics, a sales 
organization based in Montreal. “TG Graphics sells a variety of products to the printing market. They cover nearly all areas of Canada as part of their 
existing business. Adding textiles to their mix will compliment their business as well as ours,” says Larry Fisher Jr. “We have been talking with Al Proulx, 
president of TG Graphics for well over a year about this endeavor. We are excited about this business relationship as we are certain it will benefit both 
parties and the customer base we wish to serve.”
