Bright Print achieved the savings thanks to a new initiative from the Printing Industries Association of Australia (PIAA) in partnership with group buying exchange EMSquared.
The Sydney-based printer negotiated a better rate after its three-year contract came to an end. Bright Print will pay less than half the standard customer rate, said director Debbie Burgess.
She said the PIAA initiative “will help those companies that have never gone to market or don’t realise the opportunities available by going to market”.
Bright Print had already found ways to reduce its power bills by cutting down on electricity use and using more efficient technology, she said.
According to the PIAA, companies can also offset the rising cost of power by moving to cleaner technologies.
The trade body will focus on this theme at its Transitioning to Cleaner Printing Technology seminars to be held in April-May.
Hagop Tchamkertenian, PIAA national manager for policy and government affairs, said that while he couldn’t guarantee every company could save as save as much as Bright Print, he expected printers would welcome any savings in these challenging times.
The three-hour seminars will be held in Brisbane (17 April), Sydney (18 April), Canberra (19 April), Melbourne (1 May), Hobart (2 May), Adelaide (3 May) and Perth (4 May).
