Transcontinental Inc., operating as TC Transcontinental, is a Montreal-based packaging, commercial printing and specialty media company.
The company was established in 1976 as a direct marketing company, and later expanded into newspaper printing, and eventually publishing of newspapers and magazines. In the mid-2010's, Transcontinental began to exit the mass media industry by divesting its consumer-oriented publications, local newspapers, and most of its business-to-business publications, and expanding into the flexible packaging industry.
Transcontinental is publicly-traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange, and has over 9,000 employees—the majority of which are based in Canada, the United States and Latin America.
Over time and through our quest for long-term profitable growth, Transcontinental has nurtured an integrated approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR). From the first Environmental Policy in 1993, to the 2012 update of our Paper Purchasing Policy and the release of our successive three-year CSR plans, Transcontinental has shown, and continue to show, proven leadership in this regard.
TC Transcontinental has made steps towards corporate social responsibility, including:
Expanding its vieVERTe product line to feature compostable, 100% recyclable and post-consumer resin packaging
Investing more than $10 million in research and development toward more sustainable packaging
Opening four state-of-the-art labs to test packaging performance and efficiency at its ASTRA Center in Menasha, Wis.
Reaching 31% of women in leadership roles throughout its packaging, printing and media sectors
