Brisbane-based QLM Label Makers enters the garment label market in Cambodia with a new $A1.5 million purpose-built facility in the capital Phnom Penh. The factory will run Cambodia’s first HP Indigo Label Press.

“We have looked to Cambodia as a market with exciting growth potential,” says QLM Group CEO Simon Pugh. “We will be providing quality materials and converting equipment, something the market has been wanting for some time.”

QLM’s investment in South East Asia is designed to give the company a greater footprint in emerging markets while remaining true to its core business and values, he says.

The new facility combines digital and conventional label printers as well as a range of equipment targeted specifically to the garment sector, one of Cambodia’s largest industries.

Newly appointed general manager, Sokun Tep, says: “The market is highly competitive and to compete our facility needs to be modern, efficient and of world class standard. We are looking forward to providing the Cambodian market with a new quality option.”  

QLM has installed Cambodia’s first HP Indigo Label Press in the new facility. “With the ability to provide premium embellishments like foil, raised-screen varnish, embossing and die-cutting, QLM are looking to provide roll-to-roll solutions in a way not seen before in the region,” Pugh says.

QLM Label Makers is an Australian company with headquarters in Brisbane. It employs over 600 staff across eight plants in seven countries around Asia Pacific.

    Very good to see a local company doing so well and actually entering Asia. Some great opportunities lie in Cambodia and Vietnam especially for printed items like printed flags and printed gazebos etc as well as labelling and signage.
