Hardware and consumables supplier, Starleaton, has entered voluntary administration.
Companies contacted by Sprinter who supply Starleaton said they were surprised by the news and were unaware that the business was facing any financial difficulties.
Starleaton locally represented companies including Canon, Zund, Epson, and Neschen.
Sprinter understands Starleaton staff were asked to go home today as administrators arrived to assume control of the business.
Starleaton was established in 1978 and describes itself as one of the industry’s leading suppliers of technology and consumables to the graphic imaging market including outdoor and indoor signage, display, point of purchase, window and floor-mounted graphics.
Since its 2016 acquisition of DES, the company’s reach has extended into packaging, commercial printing, photographic, fine art, CAD/GIS, high-end colour management, and soft proofing.
“With six locations across the ANZ region from Perth to Auckland we have grown to be Australia and New Zealand’s largest family-run supplier to the Sign, Display and Photo/Fine Art sectors,” the company said.
Sprinter has contacted Starleaton and is awaiting further comment.
