From the editor Confidence brims with new installations... “As you will read in this edition, there has been a welcome upsurge in label printers throughout the country who are looking to the future, and buying new presses to streamline and improve their efficiency. This is a very welcome move, not only for the press suppliers but also the sellers of ancillary equipment and consumables that flow through. We are confident this list of label printers will be an expanding one, and in the next issue there’ll be more companies shaking off reservations about the economy that have played a role in Australia over the past three years. But it’s not only “hardware” that companies are investing in, and the story on Trimatt bringing out a very experienced Domino executive from the UK, is another positive sign that companies have set their sights on developing a bigger footprint in the expanding label market. The rise in interest by printers in special stocks to give their wine labels that extra punch through, is also visited in this issue as two of the biggest suppliers of label stocks talk about the trends and what label printers are requesting from them. The constant complaint that the printing industry in general and the label section in particular is not attracting young apprentices, is being fought by a Sydney-based organisation that has a plan to attract school leavers to the industry. The programme called “Schools Industry Partnership” while in its infancy, has had success here and a lot of success overseas, flagging-down school leavers on the depth and variety of skills that the graphic arts industry can provide. It also allows all sections of the printing industry to play their part in attracting potential employees to the industry. Speaking of apprentices, we also catch up with the FPLMA Apprentice of the Year who won the title at the end of 2017. Danny Hayes encapsulates the possibilities of what the label industry can offer newcomers, and his story is one that can be repeated over and over, as employers look forward to the next generation of trades people. We also have details on the Call for Entries for the 2018 FPLMA Print Awards. These awards cover a number of categories of label production so make sure you get your entries in before the 23rd of June. Further details about the Print Awards and the gala Dinner are on the FPLMA website. Labelexpo comes to ASEAN with a brand-new Labelexpo look and taking place in May. This will be in Bangkok and promises to be a glimpse into the fast-developing Asian label industry, and which has become the regional HQ for many manufacturing companies. This show will have a number of workshops and conference sessions, which should be a “must go to” for Australian companies looking over the horizon to the markets to our north. Have a great read and let me know how we can promote your business, and we’ll catch up with you down the track.” Till next time, Roger Coles – Editor & Publisher In this issue Cover Story 2 QLM investment in Mark Andy drives major efficiencies.
