Back in 1965 when everyone was dancing to Wooly Bully, a man called Floyd McRae set up a seriously cutting-edge photo lab in Toronto. A highly imaginative engineer with a sharp eye for detail, McRae’s soon garnered a reputation as one of the best image labs in the entire industry.
Forty years later, two visionary business partners stepped into the picture. Bob Murray and Richard Kisiel shared Floyd’s enthusiasm for innovation and his vision for the future. As the digital revolution took hold, McRae remains at the vanguard of new technologies.
Early adoption of state-of-the-art image generation techniques saw McRae seamlessly evolve into a world-class specialist company. Today, McRae remains at the very frontier of digital image production. Our reputation is global, with customers all over the world.
Bob purchased the McRae business in 1997 as one of the most reputable photograph and colour labs in Canada. Bob’s vision into the new world of fabric printing was years ahead of others in the industry. This foresight set in motion McRae’s journey towards its current success as one of the North American leaders in digital textile printing. With over thirty years of management, business development, sales and marketing experience, Bob’s focus is devoting his personal attention and energy to the vision and strategy of business development with a dedicated, hands-on approach with clients and within the McRae family.
Richard has been instrumental in the successful growth of McRae since purchasing the business with partner Bob Murray in 1979. A multi-talented executive with a unique vision, Richard has an aptitude for product production that meets and surpasses the highest global quality standards. He is deeply involved in continuous R&D projects that ensure McRae is always at the forefront of the fabric printing industry and oversees McRae’s production and quality processes.
If that weren’t enough, Richard is also an expert and well-published photographer.
