Brisbane offset house Panther Print Group has been wound up after 28 years in business and a liquidator is now compiling a list of creditors.

Long-term Panther managing director and owner Greg Beech has been unavailable for comment. The company’s office phone was answered by someone who described themselves as a former employee. “For some reason, the phone has been diverted to my mobile,” he said. “No-one has seen Greg for about a week.” It’s understood all staff members have lost their jobs.

A notice posted on ASIC last week says a meeting of the members of the company decided to wind up the business and appoint liquidator Bill Cotter of Robson Cotter Insolvency Group.

On its website, family-owned Panther Print Group – based at Stafford, a northern Brisbane suburb – describes itself as one of Brisbane’s more established offset commercial printers. “Established in 1990…Panther Print Group are leaders in the medium-size range of quality commercial printing. Our Heidelberg one, two and five colour presses present our customers with quality, cost efficient and reliable, productivity for commercial midrange specialty printing. Our skilled pre-press team ensures your project is prepared for optimum efficiencies for our press, and post-press (finishing and binding), production.”

The company’s client list includes the Property Council of Australia, a national organisation with 2,000 members. “The majority of the Queensland division’s member communications is via printed promotional material – including newsletters, events registration forms, publications, and brochures – and for eight years we have been relying on Greg Beech and his team at Panther Print to deliver a quality product which is on time and cost-effective,” said Robert Walker, Queensland executive director, Property Council of Australia, in a testimonial on the website.

A date for the first creditors’ meeting is expected to be announced shortly.
