LAMONT OPENS 2ND PRINT FACILITY
Lamont Print + Signs celebrated its new building with an Open House event in Townsville that saw 100 people attending, including local federal and state MPs.
The event included tours by Lamont’s trained staff and demonstrations of some of machines at work, with the company showcasing its printing equipment, and thanking the local community for its support.
Owner Stephen Lamont, speaking at the event, highlighted that it wasn't just about the equipment but also a chance to appreciate the journey and thank partners like suppliers, resellers, and clients. He said, "We had a great turnout at our Open House. Our partners and clients are professionals, and it was inspiring to gather with them.
"We were excited to show our new banner printing facility, and it was enjoyable for all. We were honoured by the support from our local federal and state members. It means a lot to us."
The new building has a host of new technology, including the HP Latex 2700, Plastgrommet eyelet machine, and Miller T400 and Weldmaster bar welder.
In addition, Lamont has two HP Latex 1500 machines, the Latex R1000 andR2000 machines, an HP Latex 3600 , and a Kongsberg C65 table. A pair of HP Latex 800s make up the printing fleet.
The company says the investment in new technology shows its commitment to providing advanced technology to Townsville. Lamont spoke about the company's beginnings in a small office 18 years ago with just a printer, laminator, and table, and said its goal was to become a leading business in the field, using the latest machinery.
He also expressed belief in Townsville's potential, and wanting to keep the money in the local community, he said this was exemplified by the goal, now achieved, of building a print facility second to none in this part of the country.
The event welcomed guests including state member Les Walker, and federal member for Herbert, Phillip Thompson, as well as suppliers, resellers, and local business members.
