  • New Ryobi powers-up Perth print production

    Leading ‘trade only’ print supplier’s no-compete rule is attracting more resellers and helping drive increased volumes in WA.

    A Ryobi LED perfector is the fourth major 8-colour press installed in the CMYKhub network – one Komori in Melbourne, then Ryobi in Sydney, Brisbane and now Perth. The latest press is planned to give the group wider production coverage than any competitor in the industry. With the installation of the Perth press in a new purpose-built factory, the ‘trade only’ printer will have serious LED offset production capacity across the nation.

    “We are a true ‘trade only’ printer," Clive Denholm, CMYKhub founder.

    “We are a true ‘trade only’ printer and don’t sell retail under other brands like some other trade printers. This means resellers are more comfortable with the CMYKhub model,” said Clive Denholm, founder.

    He also believes the free website software offered by CMYKhub is also a great value add for resellers.

    Adam Hollister, CMYKhub WA state manager says the move to perfecting presses reflects to need to reduce manufacturing costs in a competitive trade market. “We are finding that deadlines are becoming shorter and the market is increasingly competitive. The UV presses allow us to print and cut work instantly even on uncoated paper.

    “The ability to produce a finished product in one pass is vital to keep costs down. This underpins why we have made a decision to move towards perfecting presses with UV and to choose Cyber as our supplier,” he said.

    Additional investment in finishing equipment is occurring at the same time with a new Perfecta Guillotine line to be installed at CMYKhub WA by December.

    In 2013 CMYKhub WA purchased Top Print, a local trade printer and has grown the business in the last year to a size that requires the new equipment and more space.
