Shergill moves Qld businesses into new site

Mark Shergill will consolidate his Queensland businesses into a new site on the Gold Coast, and power it with former Focus Press kit.

The move will combine his Brisbane printer Dynamic Print Communication, bought out of receivership last April, with Acacia Ridge business PurePrint he acquired in June from its retiring owner.

Shergill says the 10-year-old 1600sqm facility in Molendinar will house all the operations of both businesses, with all staff making the transition.

“The site is newer, well organised and gives us good scope to grow the Qld side of the business, and service the clients we maintained at PurePrint,” he says.

He says his Focus Print Group has managed to keep most PurePrint clients on board and with plenty of capacity the operation is promising.

Production will be led by the 2007 Komori Lithrone LS1040P 10-colour press Shergill snagged from the Focus auctions at its reserve price of $455,000, and includes some former Focus finishing gear.

Shergill has sold off PurePrint’s Komori Lithrone 440 four colour offset press overseas and will maintain the PurePrint Komori Lithrone 526 five colour at the new site for the time being.

He says further investment in kit next year is likely as business ramps up. The PurePrint buy came with two big ongoing contracts with civil manufacturing clients.

The move is to be completed by the end of the year.
