Fine Print buys neighbour Ace Printing

Fine Print Australia, Carrum Downs, VIC.

Offset and digital house Fine Print Australia has acquired local competitor Ace Printing and moved the business into the Fine Print facility at Carrum Downs in Melbourne’s south-east.

It’s the fifth acquisition by Fine Print since managing director Suren Meegama started his first printing company in his garage in 2006, with one GTO 46 single colour machine and a Polar guillotine. Over the years, Meegama has acquired Abex Print Group (2006), Rippingale Printing (2012), M&K Printing (2013) and DataColour (2015), moving all of those companies under the same roof.

Ace Printing has been operating in Melbourne’s south-east for 30 years, producing mainly offset and digital work.

“We heard that Ace owner Shaun Harrison was looking to get out of the printing industry and move on,” says Meegama. “It’s a very competitive market and you have to keep up to date with the game or you get left behind. So, we made an offer and I think it helped that we were just three minutes away and were able to retain existing staff members and move the company into our plant.”

Fine Print Australia is an Australian owned and operated print business based at 56 Frankston Gardens Dr, Carrum Downs, servicing the Mornington Peninsula, Frankston, Seaford, Dandenong and Melbourne areas.

“We specialise in digital, offset and large format work and we also do a lot of signage jobs, posters and banners,” says Meegama. “Business is a bit quiet lately but we are travelling okay because we are increasing our turnover every year. I’m a Christian myself and I’m praying for work. God is feeding me.”

The company’s tech line-up includes a 2-colour Speedmaster, a cylinder, platen, two guillotines, a Horizon stitchliner and booklet line, a Morgana digital folder, a Roland cutter, an HP Latex large format press, two Konica Minolta Accurio presses and a CtP system.
