St. Joseph Communications
St. Joseph Communications was founded in 1956 by Gaetano Gagliano as a printing house. Gaetano Gagliano and his growing family emigrated from Italy shortly after the war. Upon their arrival to Canada, Gaetano found work laying track for CP Rail. But as he worked long days over the next two years, Gaetano couldn’t forget about his lifelong dream of becoming a printer. So in 1956, Gaetano started a small print business in the basement of his small family home. He specialized in letterpress work such as birth announcements, invitations and business cards. Gaetano expanded his small print business through new equipment and technology, strategic acquisitions and bigger facilities. By the 1980s, St. Joseph Print was one of largest privately owned print companies in Canada, and growth continued in the 1990s to early 2000s. St. Joseph continued to grow its print business as well as expand into photography, content creation, publishing and media.
It is Canada's largest privately owned printing company. The company currently has three divisions:
- the printing operation St. Joseph Print Group
- the content creation division St. Joseph Content Group
- St. Joseph Media Group, the magazine publisher.
Tony Gagliano is Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Other executives at the corporation include Frank Gagliano Vice Chairman, John Gagliano President Print Group, Kin-Man Lee CFO, Doug Templeton President Content Group, and Doug Knight President Media Group. The Corporation has 1300 employees. In September 2010, St. Joseph Communications partnered up with PrinterOn to set up ePRINTit centres where users can print directly from their smartphones.
St. Joseph's magazine division was established in 2001 with the acquisition of Multi-Vision Publishing, and expanded further the following year with the acquisition of Key Media.
