4over Inc. officially opens new Mississauga plant in grand fashion
California-based trade printer 4over officially opened its new 50,000-sq.-ft. production facility in Mississauga, Ontario Tuesday, April 10 with a special Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.
Founded in 2001, 4over is one of North America's largest trade printers with locations in California, Ohio, Texas, Florida, New Jersey, Chicago, Arizona, and now Mississauga. It has over 400,000 square feet of office and production facilities housing some of the industry's most sophisticated hardware. You can now add another 50,000 square feet with the opening of its new Mississauga Plant. The plant actually began producing work in December of 2011.
Attending were Hazel McCallion, the popular and always energetic 93-year-old Mayor of Mississauga for over 34 years, 4over Mississauga Plant Manager and printing industry veteran Tom Hogan (pictured previously), 4over Inc. CEO Zarik Megerdichian and his wife Tina Hartounia, President of 4over Inc., members of the trade media, printers, suppliers and other invited guests.

McCallion took the podium and spoke about working with Hogan previously, when he was involved with the Mississauga Booster newspaper. "You could not have made a better choice," she told 4over executives and audience members.
Hogan graduated from Niagara College Engineering School and began his career as a Computer Engineering Technologist, working in a variety of positions in the printing industry. He has a wealth of experience in start-ups, having played a key role in The Globe and Mail's outsourcing of its production to Interweb Ontario. He was also instrumental in the start-up, development and design of Transcontinental Metropolitain, the printer for LaPresse newspaper in Montreal.
"We are very happy to be in Canada and in Mississauga and we will always do our best to serve you," 4over CEO Zarik Megerdichian told the crowd. He said that 4over plans to add a 40-inch press soon as well as a press for plastic applications - in addition to its current 29-inch Komori. He emphasized that the company's focus will be on quality, low price and one of the best speed-to-market solutions in the industry.

He also revealed that the 4over plants in nearby Ohio and New Jersey will act as a back-ups in the unlikely scenario of production interruptions – thereby virtually guaranteeing on-time service and project delivery to its Canadian customers. He also said that the Mississauga Plant is now the most independently run facility in 4over's history.
Plant Manager Tom Hogan thanked those who attended and, in a classy move, personally acknowledged each and every employee by name, with special mention to Varaz Gharakhanian, who was responsible for organizing the event, and employee/singer Carlos Morgan and his band Moses Revolution, that provided lively and upbeat entertainment during the event.
Attendees were also treated to a buffet lunch with dessert and refreshments, and an impressive array of printed samples illustrating the company's range of services and exceptional quality. The company plans to expand across Canada in the future. The Mississauga Plant has about 35 employees currently, and has a capacity to hire 150 people locally.« Back to Press
