Triangle Paper was backed by the Triangle Corporation, a
national copy paper supplier, and distributor of wide format supplies. No-one
from either Triangle Corp or Triangle Paper was commenting on the demise of the
merchant, beyond demanding that Australian
Printer / i-grafix not publish the story.
Triangle Paper was managed by former Spicers sales manager
Peter Hunt and former Spicers and Edwards Dunlop salesman Geoff Nathan. Its
director was Stuart Hardeman, who has developed the Triangle Corporation into a
major national business.
Trade sources believed its strategy of operating on a low
cost basis contributed to Triangle's demise, with printers requiring high
levels of service from their merchants these days, the costs of which have to
be factored into paper pricing.
Triangle sold gloss and matt coated papers, laser offsets,
one and two-sided art boards, and recently added an 80gsm coated to its
range. Among its brands were Xtreme
Gloss and Xtreme Matt art papers.
