Previously known as Cameron Advertising Display, Camad’s current ownership started in 1960 with Bob Deveau. Bob had been the shop foreman and lead salesman at Camad before buying the company. From day one he fostered Camad’s identity as a true family run business where his son Dan and daughter Janice still work today.
Always a leader in technology, Bob regularly invested in new equipment and before long it was clear that Camad was outgrowing the confined downtown Toronto location. In-line screen presses became available and Camad was one of Toronto first shops to embrace the newest technology. Due to the size of the new four-colour and five-colour presses and a direct to screen system, another move was eminent in 1995 so the building at 12 Nantucket was purchased. By doing so Camad reaffirmed itself as leaders in the screen printing industry. When large format digital printing was introduced into the marketplace, Camad saw this as the perfect compliment to traditional screen printing.
Again, when large format printing hit the streets, Camad saw this as the perfect compliment to screen printing. The building next door was purchased in 2005, as well as a variety of digital large format printers, i-cut machines and laminators. The staff grew to more than 40.
In 2010 we acquired the worlds best flatbed digital press from Agfa “The M-Press -Tiger”. This press combines a screen press feel and speed with the quality of digital. We increased our capability in the grand format arena with the addition of another industry leader, the Durst Rho 500, a 5-meter UV roll to roll press in the spring of 2012.
