    New MD for positive Camtec

    Positive Camtec has appointed a new managing director, with its former technical director, Philip Trumble this week taking the reigns.

    The local print equipment distributor has appointed Trumble as its new managing director after more than 15 years with the company. In a statement, the Positive Camtec said he had ‘great experience in all facets of the industry.’

    Trumble (pictured) says the new role looks forward to challenges that will be thrown his way in a rapidly changing industry.

    “In an ever changing economic climate and rapidly developing industry there will be many challenges ahead for all businesses. I look forward to working with my team to overcome these challenges and continue our growth as a company,” says Trumble.

    The company’s former managing director, Ray Clarke, stepped down from the role due to family commitments. He says that, “it has been a pleasure serving as managing director of Positive Camtec over the past 20 years, we have cemented ourselves as a leading supplier in the industry and I am very proud of the achievements of our close knit team. I fully support Philip in his new role and have full confidence in his commitment and abilities.”

    Clarke will still be associated with Positive Camtec in a consultative role.

    Marshmedia moves

    Print and design business, Marshmedia, is on its way to Alexandria, with the company this week beginning its migration westward from its current location in Edgecliff.

    The machines will be run down by the end of this week to be packed up and shipped to the new location, 163-173 McEvoy Street in Sydney’s Alexandria, with the new space offering a substantial increase in operational space.

    “The new space is approximately ten times the size at least,” says the company’s sales manager, Corey O’Connor. “The current office is about 75 sq metres, and we’re moving up to about 250 square metres.

    The new location will enable the business to expand its offering in hybrid offset and digital printing, in addition to its existing product range, which includes wide format.

    “We’re looking to grow with the purchase of hybrid offset and digital printers. It’s about being able to give our clients the quickest turnaround time as jobs come in,” says O’Connor. “We’ll have street frontage and areas to do vehicle wrapping, being able to output larger items, getting to a standard being able to do everything onsite too. We want to do all our own printing in-house.”
