  • Currie Group kicks off its Colour Roadshow around NZ

    Kiwi printers will be queuing up for the opening of the Currie Colour Roadshow today in Auckland as the industry’s iconic mobile showroom starts its 2nd Middle Earth tour.

    Over the next month the huge brightly coloured pantech will ferry its cargo of high-tech printing equipment around the North and South Islands, bringing the latest digital technology and finishing kit to parts far and wide. Craig Paul pictured), Currie Groups’ new New Zealand manager will be mine host for the scores of industry professionals expected to take advantage of the opportunity to see the latest developments.

    The former Frontline founder is the new face of Currie Group and AM International in New Zealand following the retirement of Ian Wood at Christmas.

    “It was quite fortuitous the way it happened. I was looking for something to do after leaving Aarque when they approached me. I was very pleased to accept,” said Paul.

    The gradual rebranding of the company will see Currie Group New Zealand provide the same level of service and range of products that have made it the largest independent graphic supplier in Australia.

    “We’re very happy to have Craig Paul on board in New Zealand. He is very well known and respected. Customers can be assured of continuity of service from the company. The Roadshow is a visible expression of our commitment to the New Zealand printing industry,” said Phillip Rennell, marketing director, Currie Group.
