Some of the local printing industry’s biggest players have shown their support for this year’s PICA NSW event, with a group of 15 companies already signed on to partner with the PIAA for the awards event in November.

The 2012 NSW Printing Industries Craftsmanship Awards, which will be held on 2 November at the Sydney Convention Centre, Darling Harbour, has already named Employers Mutual as its major partner, but Printing Industries has added several other big names to the growing list of sponsor companies.

“We have the support of Kodak and Lanier as Silver Partners; Bottcher, Quote & Print, BJ Ball Papers, Heidelberg, Fuji Xerox and Konica Minolta as Bronze Partners and Brissett Rollers, SkilledForce and Currie Group as Pewter Partners,” says Bill Healey, Printing Industries CEO and NSW general manager, adding that it was “heartening to see last year’s Major Partner, Employers Mutual, continue their support as the naming rights sponsor for 2012 and Media Super continue as our Platinum Sponsor.”

Healey (pictured) welcomes the new partnership arrangements saying it was a good confidence boost for the local industry.

“The PICA awards are the major activity for our NSW printers and it’s a great boost to our printing community to have so many industry partners prepared to support this event in a period of particularly difficult trading conditions,” he says. “These companies are an integral part of our printing community providing key support services and are well respected in their respective field of workers compensation and superannuation services.”

Healey says he also commends the NSW Government’s Office of Environment and Heritage and Applied Training Solutions for continuing their Gold Partnerships, adding that there was still time and space for other companies to come on board in support of PICA NSW.

“There is still an opportunity for other to join us and they can do this by contacting Mark Tolentino in our Sydney office,” he says.
