Digital solutions supplier iMedia is the latest business to become part of PaperlinX Merchanting.

As interest in the wide format and digital area continues to grow overseas, PaperlinX Merchanting realised that it would be a wise move to invest in this sector locally. "It was a logical progression to move into that area," explained Greg Street, general manager, PaperlinX Merchanting.

"When we looked at businesses, iMedia came up as one that we believed would fit into our operation well. Our core values and thinking are the same."

iMedia joins Spicers Paper and Dalton under the PaperlinX banner and will offer specialist knowledge in a growing market segment, along with the distribution of media, printers, software and other consumables.

Both companies believed that the acquisition was a comfortable fit which complimented their services and customers’ needs. Plans are now in place to expand iMedia throughout Australasia. "We’re working on expansion now," Street said. "We haven’t decided whether that expansion will be made through organic growth or further acquisition, but it will be sooner rather than later."
