Canadian sustainable digital flexible packaging leader expands reach by adding a new location in Montréal, Québec and upgrades head office to 50,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility

Burlington, Ontario, August 11, 2020: In response to significant growth of their customer base, Rootree Inc., Canada’s leader in sustainable digital flexible packaging, opened a second location in Montréal, Québec, and also moved their head office from Hamilton, Ontario to Burlington, Ontario.

Over the past year, Rootree Inc.’s customer base has rapidly grown across North America. In order to continue to provide quality service for sustainable digital flexible packaging, Rootree Inc. opened a second location in Montréal, Québec to serve their French-speaking and Québec-based clients more effectively. The expansion allows Québec and East Coast-based Canadian and US clients to:

  • communicate with bilingual sales representatives,
  • access Rootree Inc.’s offices and showrooms from a more central location, and
  • receive sample deliveries in less time.

Additionally, in order to continue to keep up with the demand for sustainable digital flexible packaging, Rootree Inc. upgraded their head office in Hamilton, Ontario to a new 50,000 sq ft facility in Burlington, Ontario, more than doubling their capacity. This expansion means all manufacturing, creative services, co-packing, shipping, and receiving will take place at their new Burlington location. With this increase in space, Rootree now has the ability to continue to grow their team and bring in additional HP Indigo Digital Presses. They will also bring in three additional converting lines by the end of 2020.

On the company’s recent expansion, Rootree Inc. President & CEO Phil St-Cyr said, “Our recent expansion is a by-product of our perennial innovation, customer-centric approach, and company culture. Our dedicated, creative, and diligent team all work in tandem toward the same goal. Managing a business is similar to growing a tree; choose a varietal, identify the right medium and location, expand the energy of the seed through germination, nurture tender seedlings, provide care and nourishment at every step of the way, prune branches to encourage growth, and have a little faith in nature.”

“It’s inspiring to see our customers evolve in the flexible packaging industry as they adopt HP Indigo digital printing solutions to better serve the growing demand for faster turnaround, multiple SKUs, low waste and unlimited variable data for customization targeting. With Rootree’s focus on providing sustainable and quality solutions for their customers, it’s not surprising to see their amazing year-over-year success and their rapid expansion with a new second site opening in Montréal,” said Haim Levit, Vice President and General Manager, HP Indigo
