Southern Impact launches packaging business
Managing director hopes to expand customer base with new business venture, Onpack

Melbourne based print group Southern Impact has created a new entity, a packaging and label business, Onpack which it is  launching this month.

The new business specialises in self-adhesive labels for food, craft beer, industrial and chemical products.

With the latest in digital print and converting technology, without the prohibitive set-up expense of conventional methods, Onpack says it will reduce customers’ lead times, setup costs, working capital requirements and help eliminate obsolete inventory.

Michael Nankervis, managing director at Onpack says, “Since the establishment of Southern Impact as the umbrella entity of Impact Digital, Southern Colour and Intelligent Media the board has been looking for opportunities to diversify beyond commercial offset and digital print within growth sectors. Labels and packaging was one sector identified, and as a result Onpack was created.”

Nankervis wants to build a business offering a high level of customer service, high quality product and be able to grow with clients over the long term.

Nankervis says, “Onpack is a natural evolution for Southern Impact, providing diversification into an exciting industry growth segment of short-to-medium run labelling.

“The addition of Onpack perfectly complements the other businesses within the Southern Impact family and provides our customers, both current and new, with another service offering from a trusted, cohesive print partner.”

Nankervis says when it comes to the group activities, Onpack will be a stand-alone brand.

“As with all Southern Impact subsidiaries, Onpack will be a strong stand-alone brand, complete with separate operation and direct customer base. We also look to provide an additional service to our existing customer base served by other Southern Impact businesses.”

Using the latest in digital label technology, Onpack launches with a number of presses, from printing to offline finishing capabilities including: Screen L350 UV Inkjet distributed by Jet Technologies, Prati Digifast One distributed by Heidelberg Graphics Australia and Prati Saturn Omnia distributed by Heidelberg Graphics Australia.

This will be the fourth print company as part of Southern Impact.
