Association re-locates to member heartland

The association moved its headquarters last week to a new two-storey building at 25 South Parade, Auburn, in the heart of Sydney’s western suburbs major population centre. Printing Industries national president, Chris Segaert, said the move provided a significant increase in floor space and parking facilities.

“The new two storey building was bought by Printing Industries to provide better and more convenient training and meeting facilities for the industry,” he said. “The high cost of city parking, increased cost of building maintenance, levies and other related overheads made the CBD an increasingly expensive proposition.

“The Auburn building is new with minimal overheads, has 23 on-site parking spaces and is adjacent to Auburn railway station. It is a far more convenient location for members to attend training courses and briefings and the various activities staged by our affiliated associations.”

He said Printing Industries would be putting a new emphasis on training and employee relations services in 2004. This included investigation of Internet based training delivery.

“The additional space will allow us to set up better facilities for member companies in a more accessible location. Our facilities include additional meeting rooms, extensive kitchen and outdoor facilities. Technology equipment needs are also being reviewed,” he said.

“Our historic books collection dating back over several centuries, including the replica Gutenberg Bible display, will now have a permanent, secure and publicly accessible home.”

Members are invited to visit the new offices on completion of the fit-out currently underway.

The Auburn location is also the registered office of the Label & Tag Manufacturers Association (LATMA) Australia and LATMA NSW; the Screenprinting and Graphic Imaging Association of Australia (SGIAA) and SGIAA NSW; NSW Junior Printing Executives Association (JPE); Community Newspapers Australia (CNA); Lithographic Institute of Australia (LIA) and Printing Industries Credits.
