Opus boosts trans-Tasman billboard capacity with Scitex pair

The group is installing an HP Scitex XP5300 at Cactus Imaging in Sydney and an XP2300 at Omnigraphics NZ in Auckland.

Opus chief executive Cliff Brigstocke said large-format work accounts for around 38% of business. He said the investment was part of the group’s regional growth strategy to push further into the Asia Pacific market.

“From a group perspective, we are continuing to push into Asia Pacific with [book printer] COS,” he said.

“We also export billboard work to places like Cambodia and we are investing in Asia Pacific markets further.”

Keith Ferrel, Cactus Imaging general manager for strategic business development, said: “Our partnership with HP enables us to lead the market as a specialist out-of-home digital printer, with unrivalled speed and the scale to deliver a regional solution for our customers.”

The XP5300 is currently in operation at Cactus Imaging, while the XP2300 is in the process of being installed at Omnigraphics NZ.

The XP5300 can produce signage up to 5m wide while the XP2300 is 3.2m wide.
