Dates of existence

[ca. 1906] - 1999


McCurdy Printing Co. was a Halifax printing firm operating from ca.1906 to 1999. It was established by John Archibald McCurdy and later taken over by his son William Hue McCurdy, who assumed the position of president. William McCurdy also established Petheric Press, one of the first small publishing companies in Nova Scotia, which specialized in Nova Scotia historical works and was active from 1967 to 1984.

McCurdy Printing saw a variety of owners after McCurdy sold the business in the late 1970s. It was first purchased by Doug McCallum and two other entrepreneurs who sold the business again in 1988. The company was then owned by Brunswick Capital Group Ltd. and the Annapolis Basin Group before Newfoundland Capital Corporation Ltd. acquired it in 1999. That same year, Newfoundland Capital merged McCurdy with Atlantic Nova Print to form Print Atlantic.
