Greenridge Group acquires Ultra Print
Queensland print group Greenridge is buying POS, digital and offset outfit Ultra Print, as it follows its growth through acquisition strategy, which has seen it buy several print businesses in recent years.
Greenridge will keep the Ultra Print brand, and while management, sales and graphic design will stay at the Ultra Print offices, all production will be moved to the Greenridge production facility at Toowoomba, from the current Ultra Print location in Banyo, next to Brisbane airport.
Ultra Print was established in 1997 as a two-man operation. Today it has two dozen staff including three graphic designers, and runs Fuji Xerox digital printers, a Mimaki flatbed, and offset.
Ultra Print is the latest acquisition by Greenridge Group, which also includes printers Cranbrook Press operating like Greenridge Print in Toowoomba, Westminster Printing located in Brisbane, along with Creed and Lang in Warwick. The Group also owns Greenridge Connect for direct mail and electronic communications.
Greenridge recently installed a new HP Indigo 7900 at its Toowoomba site. The business was established by Mark Osborne in 1992, with Kyal, a trained accountant, joining in 2003.
