A Little History
Our roots go 'way back to an early settlement near Dryden. In 1897 the Wabigoon Star was established as a weekly newspaper for the Wabigoon/Gold Rock gold mines. Soon after, when gold dwindled, the paper moved its base operation to Dryden, 13 miles to the west and became the Dryden Observer.
In 1940 the newspaper was purchased by the Wilson family (which has since grown into a major printing company, Alex Wilson Coldstream Ltd.). The family then expanded the business into furniture, stationery and office equipment.
In 1978 Roy Wilson purchased the then small stationery and office equipment portion of the company, (staff of six) from his brothers Alex and Jim and he, his wife Pat, son Greg, (Our President), and a dedicated team, "grew it" to many times its original size.
Our phrase "Service Built Us" is no idle boast, the truth of which you will come to know as we work hard to earn your business.
