Today, being in business for 40 years seems like an eternity… especially in an increasingly global market which multiplies innovations at an extremely fast pace. In any case, we don’t just want to say that we are aging well, we want to prove it! The proof…

For its 40th anniversary, the DPI Group announces the launch of a brand new division intended for the U.S. market:

At the end of April 2014, Group DPI will offer new products and services to American companies under the new trademark Up2date – Sign & Merchandising Solutions for the Grocery Industry.

Having significant expertise in merchandising and in-store advertising for several years with renowned Canadian companies, the DPI Group will provide integration, production and turnkey services to the major grocery chains in the United States.

This announcement comes as part of the company’s 40th anniversary. This project already in the launching phase has required investments of hundreds of thousands of dollars and has already created new jobs in the region.

Tomorrow's challenges

According to Mr. Pierre Pepin, President of DPI Group, this important turning point was an obligation to ensure the continuity of the company.

“With the advent of the digital age, mobile applications and major changes affecting advertising and in-store merchandising at an international level, we needed a very innovative competitive tool to maintain our company’s growth.

Therefore, we created the Up2Date division. We must never stop evolving.

The project has been under study and in development for several months, and now we are ready to take the next step,” points out Mr. Pepin, with the assurance of a man who has done his homework.

Today, the food market is rapidly changing with the arrival of major players like Wal-Mart.

Innovations are numerous. For example, the introduction of digital display on store shelves.

“Nowadays, it is possible to manage from a distance all the prices posted in grocery stores using digital display systems.

The era of printed labels is already drawing to an end. Now there are much more powerful systems that combine advertising displays and computing.

At DPI, we are there. We are now ready to offer specialized turnkey solutions that will meet the needs of the major grocery chains,” explains Mr. Pepin.

DPI Group : A unique Business model for the past 40 years

The management of DPI Group is proud to underline the company’s 40 years.

Founded in 1974, Sérigraphie Drummond Inc., over the years, turned into a multidisciplinary group with a North American market exposure.

Indeed, from a traditional silk screener, the DPI Group has become a renowned player in its field (merchandising, silk-screening, flexography, digital printing and marketing).

Over the years, the company has made numerous acquisitions and has collaborated with several partners to offer five specialized divisions popular among its clientele.

The DPI Group succeeded in developing a unique business model, bringing together the necessary expertise and flexibility to meet the many needs of businesses.

DPI Group: A company able to adapt to technological chance

For the past 40 years, the DPI Group has multiplied innovations, taken several risks and completed several investments to maintain enviable growth in a declining market affected by many important technological changes.

The traditional printing market and related products have been truly affected since the Internet, digital technology and several new media have made their appearance.

Despite the fact that several players were unable to ride the wave, the DPI Group has kept its focus on growth through creativity, vision and leadership in the market.

DPI Group: A partner in economic growth in a world of innovation

Knowing that innovation and technological change will continue to develop exponentially in the coming decades with globalization, the DPI Group has a specific plan to continue to enhance its position in the North American market in the short, medium and long term.

Our company intends to continue adapting to the sensitive needs of the market by adjusting our offer, our solutions and our manufacturing processes to respond more rapidly and cost-effectively to the specific needs of our clients.

The company remains in acquisition mode and plans to increase its investments in research and development to create new jobs in 2014.

The DPI Group would also like to invest in new emerging sectors such as in-store digital signage, LED backlit displays and to develop new analytical solutions to continue to go forward in the coming years.

In closing, to mark this milestone, the DPI Group has decided to offer some great surprises and several 2014 novelties to its customers as part of its 40th anniversary of incorporation. Visit for more information on this subject.
