Major graphics industry consolidation of Amari Visual Solutions into Graphic Art Mart

Graphic Art Mart has consolidated Amari Visual Solutions into the Graphic Art Mart brand creating a company with over 120 staff and 13 locations nationally.

Under this new structure, Graphic Art Mart will now stock what the company describes as an “unmatched portfolio of signage products” including a large range of rigid substrates including acrylic, aluminium composite panel, flute, foam board and polycarbonate.

Graphic Art Mart will also expand its hardware offering with the addition of HP alongside its existing brands – Roland DG, Mimaki, CWT Worktools, Keencut and Forte.

The company says its range of pressure-sensitive materials will be enriched with many of Amari’s existing products that will complement several of the industry’s favourite brands: Avery Dennison, Arlon, Aslan, Siser, Chemica, R-Tape, TransferRite, 3M Reflective and many more.

The Siser heat transfer brand was the most recent Graphic Art Mart business acquisition in 2023. 

Five years ago, Amari Visual Solutions was created after a three-way merger between Amari Plastics, Chief Media and Australian Visual Solutions.

Graphic Art Mart Marketing & Vendor Relations Manager, Mark Canavan, told Sprinter this is an exciting evolution for the business.

“We can now offer a variety of consumable products as well as a comprehensive equipment portfolio through our alignment with a number of major global brands.

“We are excited to extend our reach and expand the business to provide better servicing solutions for our customers.

The business has grown from three to thirteen locations over the last decade, and this has been an exciting evolution.”

“From a customer perspective, we are a service-based organisation now offering a comprehensive range of consumable, rigid and hardware solutions”.

“The feedback we have received so far has demonstrated that this is the right move as our customers can clearly see the benefits of bringing these businesses together,” he said.

“We continue to assess the market for product and service solutions that are the right fit for our customers and our business” Canavan said..

“With Drupa approaching, we acknowledge that the market continues to evolve, and as such will be ready to expand and diversify our business as we have over the over the last 10 years.

Canavan joined the business in 2013 after almost 15 years with Avery Dennison.
