A new kind of communications company within a modernized campus
Newly consolidated operations under a unified ownership enable new opportunities and efficiencies.
Over the past 35 years, TI Group has managed to successfully expand its vast portfolio of capabilities for integrated visual communications – targeting nation-wide retailers and consumer goods companies. In early 2008, when the group merged ownership with SCL, the operations remained at separate locations. However, after the acquisition of BGM in 2008 and CDIC in 2009, a plan was initiated to consolidate all of the operations into a single, three-building campus.
“As owners, we knew the efficiencies that consolidation would bring,” recalls an excited TI Group Partner, David Smith. “During the development stages in 2012, we decided to give our employees an opportunity to participate in the process. In doing so, we avoided many of the issues that have plagued other organizations after consolidating prematurely. The modernization of our facilities is still an on-going process with more exciting changes to come in 2014. The result will be a more efficient workflow through process re-engineering.”
Domenic Rubino, also a Partner of the business, adds, “Our three building campus provides a unique opportunity for our clients to experience an unparalleled portfolio of services from a single vendor. Our clients are pleased with the improved service levels and capacity. We are receiving positive feedback daily about the improved layout and impressive décor. As well, employee productivity has also increased due to modernized workstations and the onsite employee fitness and wellness program”.
“This consolidation has also made us more competitive in the marketplace,” states Timothy Wood, the third Partner of the TI Group alliance. “Our new campus has completely eliminated duplicate resources thereby reducing our operating costs. We also helped all of the affected employees by providing them with new career opportunities. With all of these changes, we’ve managed to reach record sales growth in 2013 – proving that we are a financially strong business despite the challenging economy. The owners of TI Group are thrilled with the outcome and the result.”
