Who we are and Where we’ve come from
Pacific Bindery Services Ltd. … Finishers and Bindery Specialists … introducing us and our services!
Pacific Bindery is a finishing and bindery services company that has built a strong reputation as a post-press services organization known for excellent quality, efficient services and quick delivery.
Originally a pen ruling business, the company was founded in 1971 by the Heinz family and grew into a full service finishing and binding operation over the next 40 years.
In 2011, Brad Clement, the Controller of the Company since 1991 and part-owner since 1998, purchased the company outright.
In 2012, Pacific Bindery Services Ltd. (PBS) also acquired the assets, resources and the talent (the people) of Arkwel Industries, a well-renown Vancouver finisher providing foil stamping, embossing, laser cutting, die cutting and die making services.
The company is located in South Vancouver, close to the international airport, to the freeway system, to the US/Canada border crossing and is accessible to many printers in the West.
Today one of the largest trade finishers and bindery specialists in the Pacific North West, PBS employs 70 staff, many of whom are long term employees and all of whom are well trained and experienced in the bindery and finishing trade.
During the past decade, PBS has been recognized nationally and internationally with more than 58 awards of recognition for excellence in the work produced.
PBS is also active in the community and industry and has supported the BC Institute of Technology Graphic Communications program through scholarships and bursaries and is an active member of the Program Advisory Committee.
As finishing and bindery specialists who work within the printing, marketing communications, and manufacturing industries, we believe in participating and supporting industry and are also long-time members of the BC Printing and Imaging Association (BCPIA) and the Binding Industries Association (BIA).
PBS’ vision has been clearly focused on providing customers with continuously improving quality of products, technology and services.
