  • Landlord shuts the doors on TLC Print Finishing

    Four years on the troubled Silverwater business is again in hot water as the company is locked out and employees look for alternative employment.

    After rising, Phoenix-like, from the ashes of a failed business, The Laminating Company (NSW) in the same suburb in 2010, TLC Print Finishing appears to have ceased trading. Although there is no record of it going into administration or a liquidator being appointed, the doors of the factory have been closed and adorned with a sign ‘Landlord in possession’.

    Disconsolate employees have been approaching opposition companies in Sydney looking for work as they have not been paid for a number of weeks, nor received any entitlements. Without the company going into administration they are unable to access the Federal Government compensation scheme.

    There is no obvious means of contacting the director, David Rogers, or shareholder, Samantha Rogers, who was operating the business. Her brother, Darren Falla, is also a shareholder. What equipment remains inside the factory is held by Mamers Investment Pty Ltd, of which David Rogers is also a director.

    [Samantha Rogers has since contacted Print21, here.]

    Other finishing companies in Sydney report fielding some extra work from former TLC Print Finishing customers, although amazed at the prices they’re being asked to match. Sources indicate that the company was hit hard by the recent failure of Focus Print.

    It should be pointed out, again, that TLC Print Finishing in Sydney has no connection with TLC Digital in Victoria.
