Wheble confirmed Hague has found a possible factory location but they will not be signing onto the location until February 1. “We really want to do everything locally, if we can find facilities in Australia we think that is a better way forward,” says Wheble. “I look forward to being able to promote [Hague’s] products and services to the Australian market and further develop their customer base.” Wheble says Hague have invested personnel in Australia and will be looking to grow their staff to 15 people in the near future. The last major security printer to set up in Australia was the ill-fated Focus Press venture in Wollongong, which just collapsed weeks after opening with the aid of a $6.1m government grant.
