Our History

I would like to thank you for your interest in our company Grand Valley Press (MJ.) Ltd.. Grand Valley Press originally began as a weekly newspaper and job print shop in Gravelbourg Saskatchewan approximately around 1938. At that time is was called the Model Print Shop and was founded and operated by Father J.E. Branch. It continued through the 1940's publishing up to 17 small local papers until 1950 when a decision was made to move the operation to Moose Jaw for easier distribution.

In the 1950's the operation was sold and renamed the Grand Valley Press, probably after the valley south of Moose Jaw now know as the Wakamow valley. The 1950's were not easy on small newspapers and subsequently the company moved into more job printing work.

In 1962 the company was once again sold to James Losie and continued to produce a multitude of printing materials such as books, business forms, stationary, tickets, brochures and posters. Mr. Losie was an ex World War II veteran and a very capable manager. Despite setbacks such as the flood in 1974 which the water level marks of 4 to 5 feet of water in the building can still be seen today. Mr. Losie through his determination and hard work ethic managed to successfully keep the business going until his retirement in 1980 at which time the business was sold to the present owners; Dave Molesky President and Doug Zinkhan Secretary Treasurer.

Today Grand Valley Press has developed into a state ofthe art printing company utilizing computer technology to produce high quality printing materials such as colour brochures, business stationary, forms, newsletters, self adhesive labels and book printing.
