The Canva Group is pleased to announce the acquisition of Ontario-based Rinkboards Inc. to expand its portfolio of products and services both nationally and internationally.
Rinkboards (www.rinkboards.com) is the Canadian leader in field of play signage for major NHL, CHL, AHL, and ECHL hockey clubs in Canada, as well as major international ice events such as the World Junior Hockey Championships, World Figure Skating Championships, and many others. This leader manages the production and installation of advertising signs for major sponsors on rink boards throughout America, Europe, and Asia through a dedicated network of professional installers.
“With this acquisition, we aim to bring complementary expertise to our printing services and also solidify our ties with major national clients. Moreover, we will be able to enhance Rinkboards’ current service offering with those of Canva Group in architectural signage and visual communications, ” says René-Pierre Roussel, President, and CEO of Canva Group.
With modest beginnings in 1974 with the Canada Cup, among others, Rinkboards’ successful turnkey execution has led the company to distinguish itself over the years and rise to the ranks of major sporting events worldwide. Rinkboards will join forces under Intergraphics business unit, part of Canva Group.
According to Geoffrey Moxley, former president of Rinkboards Inc., “Rapid execution at major sporting events has always been our trademark, and with the Canva Group, continuity is guaranteed.”
