Goode Continuous Printing at Molendinar, QLD.

Print broker McDonald Group has been quick to secure the client list of established Gold Coast trade printer Goode Continuous Printing, which went into liquidation this week after more than 30 years in business.

Gavin Joyce, MD Goode Continuous Printing.

Goode managing director Gavin Joyce, an industry veteran and former Currie Group account manager, started out as an apprentice printer and has worked in the industry since then. Joyce has been unavailable for comment and the phone at Goode rings out.

The business, located in Molendinar on the Gold Coast in Queensland, began in 1987 as a small continuous printer for local companies and had expanded production to include sheeted and book work for customers across Australia and overseas.

Goode specialised in printing business forms, carbonless (NCR) office stationery such as invoices and purchase order books. Goode’s digital division, G Digital Print, offered flyers, posters, brochures, stationery, business cards, magnets, postcards, and more.

According to an ASIC notice, members of the company held a meeting on Monday and resolved to wind up the business and appoint liquidator Jarvis Archer of Noosa Heads insolvency firm Revive Financial.

Goode’s website now features a message from Toowoomba-based print broker McDonald Group, which also has branches in Brisbane and Sydney:

We are pleased to advise that as at Friday 20th July 2018, McDonald Group has acquired the customer lists of Goode Continuous Printing.
