Print industry veteran Adrian Blessington is selling his business, Green and Gold Printing, to Corey London’s Special T, uniting two Sydney printers in a deal long in the making.

Great idea: Corey London.

Green and Gold will move into the Special T premises. London says joining forces makes a lot of business sense. “Adrian and I have known each other for a while. Our businesses do the same sort of work, we’re both going well. Speaking to him about what our future holds, we thought it would be a great idea for both of us to come together,” he said. “His business is in Artarmon, we are in Kingsgrove, and it makes sense to move to a more modern plant. It will make us a little more flexible when it comes to capacity, we will have more for our clients, and it will enable us to do more work on a weekly basis.”

Both printers are looking forward to the merger, with London saying it is a positive step for the two of them. “At the end of the day you partner up with the right company, you don’t just acquire businesses that add revenue to your sales ledger – it needs to add value to your offering. I have thought about this for a long time and both Adrian and I think it’s a perfect fit,” he said.

Excited: Adrian Blessington.

Blessington has run Green and Gold for the past 20 years, and is a good friend of London’s. “With Corey’s experienced team behind him, and the machines and staff we are taking over, it will be business as usual,” he said. “We have had discussions for quite a period of time, and he is a good guy. The model fits – he deals with the same sort of work. The blend of jobs works well with the equipment with we have. I’ve spoken with some of my clients, and they are pretty excited about the whole thing.”

Both companies focus on high quality offset and digital printing. “We have a broad range of work, with a diverse mix of clients. We enjoy dealing with many of the leading designers and agencies,” said Blessington. “We do both offset and digital, but offset is our strong point. Our machines will complement each other and the migration of equipment will only add to our offering.”
