Harper Corporation and Canflexographics Celebrate 30 Years of Partnership


Published: 01.04.2024

For almost 38 Years, Canflexographics has been at the forefront of innovation, education, and strategic partnerships, playing a pivotal role in advancing flexographic printing in Canada. Their commitment to excellence and continuous pursuit of innovation have made them an integral part of the industry's growth and success.

In 1993, a transformative relationship began between Mr. Dave Horsman and Mr. Ron Harper. This partnership laid the foundation for Canflexographics' commitment to quality and reliability, setting the stage for the remarkable 30-year celebration we mark today.


Kelly Roberts, Canflexo’s President,  joined Canflexographics in 2001, and reflected on his initial introduction and  enduring relationship with Mr. and Mrs. Harper,“Beyond business, the Harpers were keen on understanding the personal aspects of their associates, forging relationships that go beyond the corporate realm. This personal touch has been a hallmark of the Harper name, aligning seamlessly with Canflexographics' values.”


Before delving into sales, that initial  conversation between Kelly Roberts and Mr. Harper centered around education and the industry's needs in 2001. The Harper name has long been synonymous with education, and Kelly's collaboration and work with  Clemson University, Toronto Metropolitan University, the Canadian Flexographic Training Committee and the Canadian Print Scholarships Fund demonstrates the shared commitment to advancing education in flexography.


Flexographic printing, once the youngest of all printing processes, underwent significant changes, making it competitive in the evolving printing landscape. Despite the rise of digital printing, Canflexographics believes in the enduring strength of flexography, with consistent anilox rolls being a key attribute. Harper Corporation's expertise in matching anilox roll line screens and volumes has been a driving force in this regard.


Canflexographics acknowledges Harper Corporation's role in their success story, considering Harper as more than a supplier but a partner in growth. The enduring relationship has been characterized by mutual learning, support, and shared growth, making Harper one of Canflexographics' longest and  valued partnerships.

As  Kelly, Pascal Ross – Sales Manager and Christine Roberts – Vice President, look back on 30 years of achievements, the celebration with Harper is not just a reflection of their success but a testament to the enduring partnerships, shared values, and commitment to advancing the flexographic industry in Canada.
