In 1982, Mister A. Portolani starts his career as an employee in the firm Mister Copy. As technician he learns all about the copying business. Without the possibility to grow within Mister Copy, he decides to starts his own firm. B.C.D. Express was established by A. Portolani in February 1988 with as head aim to produce copies and sell to the end consumers. As core business B.C.D. Express copies originals. From the beginning the following principles were stimulated:
Since the early beginning the company had its activity at the Generaal Jacqueslaan 135 in Brussels. In 1992 the firm Mister Copy, where Mister Portolani started as an employee, closed his doors. Mister Portolani decided without hesitation to by the shop Mister Copy and to add the commercial name to his company B.C.D. Express. The existing shop, Mister Copy, situated on the same road as B.C.D. Express, Generaal Jacqueslaan 117 stayed open. This acquisition led to an increasing flexibility and an ameliorated service to its customers. With the label Mister Copy the further expansion of B.C.D. Express will be carried out. By the enormous success of B.C.D. Express the number of employees increased rapidly. This had been consciously been chosen to insure an excellent customer service. In 1997, B.C.D. Express opened a new Mister Copy on the Stallestraat 222 in Ukkel and thereby increased its accessibility with respect to its clients at the other side of Brussels. In 1998 B.C.D. Express increased it chain by opening 2 extra sale points. These print shops were located in Antwerp, on the Mechelsesteenweg, and in Ghent, on the Overpoortstraat. A 3rd establishment was opened on the generaal Jacqueslaan in Brussels and was specialized in prepress activities, Internet and large format printing.
In 1999, the geographical development continued. In Ostend a print shop was opened on the Koningstraat 27 and in Waver on Chaussée de Collines. All establishments were opened under the label Mister Copy. In 2000, we extended our network to the South of Belgium by opening a shop in Namur. In this magical year our company counted 8 delocalized print shops. In that same year a print room, called Graphoprint Services, was added to our group to give our existing customers a complete range of printed matter. In January 2003 another Mister Copy was added to our group. This shop is located in the European Centre of Brussels. In 2004 B.C.D. Express and Mister Copy got a new trademark, All Printing Services. The use of this name must help you to recognise more easily the print shops that take part of the same group. Today the companies B.C.D. Express, Copyland, D Copy, and Graphoprint Services use the commercial name All Printing Services and work narrower together to offer you the most completed service palette a print shop can imagine. The web site was a first common realisation of this closer cooperation and shows that, under the label All Printing Services, we can offer more than only copy work!
