WE CONNECT local people and businesses with their community. Through innovative and award-winning search products and services, we are Manitoba's 25 year leader in value-based print and digital marketing. Your success is our standard!

Your local Phone & Cell Community Directory now has a new name and some exciting, "kinda-new" owners. The Phone Book Company will now be known as PBC Multi Media.

Brandon's publishing dynasty - The Palmers - started out some 25 years ago with Sue & Rick Palmer launching the much loved and incredibly successful LARGE PRINT Brandon Phone Book. Always a family owned and operated business, (son) Andrew and (wife) Collette recently purchased the company, yet have always played an integral role in its growth and success. They were part of the team as the services grew to encompass all of Western Manitoba, and, with its second directory, eastward to Portage la Prairie, Pembina Valley, and Steinbach.

Working their way from the ground up, Andrew & Collette (shown here with their children Alex, Marie-Claude, Sam & Ben) have spent years assisting with sales, distribution, proofing, and in-house operations. In the words of Andrew, "working for small business success is what Iove! I'm very excited to continue this legacy and take it to the next level!"

The name PBC Multi Media was selected to honour the past and forecast the future. PBC was the original acronym for The Phone Book Company, but now as we transition to the future, it stands for everyone who benefits from our products: the wonderful People, Businesses, and Communities in our exceptional province. The Multi Media portion was added to address our unique and expanding product portfolio. Still offering provenly profitable print solutions, we have also added a variety of effective digital marketing, reputation, and social products.

With its new-ish management, great staff of Business Growth Advisors, award winning art department, and the best administration team ever, PBC Multi Media is now positioned for an extremely exciting future as the next generation brings their passion, energy and expertise to life.
