The Brisbane-based mail house was chosen for its location and ability to extend GEON’s range of mail services. Since purchasing Sydney company AP Mail in October last year, the group has had its sights set on similar businesses. Odds on the next buy will be a mail house in Victoria.

“After buying AP Mail we looked at other acquisitions in different geographic locations,” explained Gordon Towell, chief group executive, GEON Group. “It comes back down to our strategy to expand our mail offering across the group geographically.”

Impressive Laser Solutions now joins Scanlon Printing in cementing GEON’s presence throughout Queensland. Owner Allan Franklin will continue to manage Impressive Laser Solutions, which will operate as a subsidiary brand of GEON.

“The acquisition of Impressive Laser Solutions will be a great fit for the GEON group of companies in Queensland,” said Tony Scanlon, general manager, GEON Queensland. “Our end-to-end solution will be enhanced with provision of mailing services, ensuring the quality and efficiencies our clients have come to expect. We look forward to working closely with the Impressive Laser team and are proud to have them as part of the GEON family.”

Mail houses are a key market for GEON, and Towell suggests that Impressive Laser Solutions will not be the last mail house purchased by the company.

“The plan is to have mail operations in all the locations we have print operations in,” he said. “It compliments out print offerings to customers and makes it convenient for them.”
