Opus books $12m of govt work

Opus’ Canberra-based business, Union Offset Printers, was awarded a three-year contract by the Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education, which the department valued at $6.3 million.

The contract started in May and may include reports, publications, flyers, fact sheets, pull-up banners, business cards and stationery for national distribution, said a department spokesperson.

The spokesperson wouldn’t reveal how many companies had tendered for the job, but did disclose that it was a new contract.

Union Offset general manager Sam Holden told ProPrint: “The win is consistent with our successful strategy of supporting the Commonwealth’s mission-critical business processes.”

Holden added: “[The work will be handled by] the whole Fyshwick factory of offset and digital, plus document composition technologies such as HTML and Adobe’s DPS, and Opus’ IPALM content management suite.”

Opus’ other Canberra firm, Canprint, also had two big wins recently: a $4.5 million contract from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship that started in May and a $1.1 million contract from the Department of Treasury that started in April.
