Over 60 attendees signed up for the recent LIA Queensland site visit to Platypus Graphics' new printing facility at Geebung. One of the top private print enterprises in Queensland, Platypus Graphics offers a complete range of printing and packaging services from large and small format publications, to the design and construction of packaging solutions for the display, promotional and retail markets.
Aaron Lusch previewed the equipment visitors would be seeing on the tour and gave an overview of the history of Platypus Graphics, from inception to their current state-of-the-art facility. This was followed by tours conducted by Tom, Aaron and Tim Lusch, along with members of the Platypus production team.
The highlight of the night was walking through the newly HACCP Certified printing room. The packaging market has been a growth area for Platypus Graphics in recent years and the work done in achieving HACCP certification is clearly visible for all to see.
With all equipment running, the tour saw the production process from end to end: concept and prototyping, through to sheeting, printing on the twin KBA Rapida presses, die-cutting, recycling and logistics.
QLD LIA president Gavin Gyles said, “Interest in attending this plant tour was strong from the time it was announced. Unfortunately, we had to cap the numbers in the interest of safety and management, but it shows how well respected the Platypus Graphics name is here in Queensland.”
