Sydney and Newcastle based Bright Print Group (BPG) has acquired the 20 year old Oxford Communications (OCG), with the deal to be completed on August 1.
Debbie Burgess, director at BPG says, “We will be taking in all 31 staff members. Most of the equipment is coming across to the company, and Oxford owner James Camelleri will decide what to do with the premises.”
Burgess says Camelleri will be coming on board to the company playing a senior role in the business. She says the reason BPG bought the company is it is a good fit for BPG. She says, “BPG is looking forward to the merge as it will be positive for both companies.”
Sydney based Oxford Print Group is the sixth company BPG has acquired. BPG has been running for more than 50 years employing 120 staff members in both its Sydney and Newcastle location.
Burgess says BPG is not necessarily a printing company more a communication group housing different formats such as digital offset, promotional work, packaging, point of sale, online print management and warehouse distribution.
OCG has been running since 1997, specialising in small format and large format printing including business cards, retail point of sale, bookshelves, wall art and signage. The company says it is one of Australia’s leaders in total solution print management, with dedicated in-house
services that far outweigh and outperform our competitors.
BPG offers wide format, digital printing, binding and finishing, full colour printing, graphic design, mailing and distribution, inventory management, multi-channel marketing, packaging and POS.
