Under the acquisition, Peak Digital will retain its current brand and will continue to operate and manufacture at its current premises in Seaford. Peak will begin working collaboratively with Southern Impact from 2 August.

Peak Digital director Andrew Robertson and the entire team will continue to operate as they currently are, “providing both customers and suppliers with complete continuity and high levels of service”.

Rod Dawson, managing director of Southern Impact said: “The opportunity to add the capabilities, diverse product offering and manufacturing expertise of Peak Digital provides us with everything required to continue our expansion plans in this sector.

“The way that Andrew and the team at Peak Digital deal with their customers is strongly aligned to the business approach held by Southern Impact, and we couldn't be happier to welcome them into the fold”

Southern Impact - one of the country's biggest print businesses - commenced wide format manufacturing in August two years ago. Since then it has  seen significant growth in this area, resulting in the investment of several pieces of new equipment, including Arizona and Mimaki flatbeds, three Mimaki roll-feds, and an HP latex roll-fed, as well as Zund and Fotoba cutters and a laminator. 

Dawson said, "We are running at capacity in wide format, so having Peak Digital on board will be good for our peaks. They also bring some addiitonal skillsets, and a lot of expertise, enabling us to diversify our product range."

Peak now part of Southern: Andrew Robertson

Peak Digital was established in 2006 and is currently owned by Andrew and Mel Robertson. Southern Impact says, “It has established itself as a high quality manufacturer delivering excellent outcomes for its varied customer base”, which numbers more than 1000.

It has also gained a reputation as one of the more progressive print businesses, it was early into solar power, installing 280 solar panels on its roof four years ago, and is keen to support diversity in the workplace.
