Trade supplier and embossing company Avon Graphics has further expanded its offering with the purchase of the screen printing division of Brisbane-based company Daroji.
The recently finalised purchase means Avon Graphics, which acquired Brisbane celloglazer and book binder Auscote in August 2019, can now offer a complete one stop shop in Brisbane for trade print finishing.
Avon Graphics managing director Tate Hone told Sprinter Daroji, which is continuing to offer print embellishment and cello services in Brisbane, had separated out its offerings and sold the screen printing arm to Avon Graphics with a number of staff set to also move across to Avon’s new factory in the Brisbane suburb of Geebung.
“We have just finalised the purchase of Daroji’s screen printing division,” Hone told Sprinter.
“What it does is it creates Brisbane’s only one stop shop for print finishing, coating and screen printing needs.”
The move marks another expansion of Avon Graphics following the purchase of Auscote with owners Murray and Deb Whitting, who have provided lamininating and binding services to the printing trade for 30 years, now moving over to operate the business at Avon Graphics.
In April 2018 Avon Graphics purchased Sydney finisher Rotoflex Coatings with all staff and equipment transitioned over as owner Bob Minto was looking to retire.
Avon Graphics now employs around 120 staff nationally.
