Bridgestone Investments Acquires Digitalpress

Dear Customers,

Over the past 15 years I have had the pleasure of building a great brand and industry leader in 'Digitalpress'.  I have seen to its progress from humble beginnings as a boutique retail print shop to a nationally recognised commercial print business at the peak of its craft.  I have been gracious in the acceptance of awards the industry has bestowed upon us over the years and have led a team that have been lauded for their workmanship and expertise. 

I am, as I always have been a keen and astute learner, understanding and always keeping abreast of environmental developments in our industry to ensure that Digitalpress continues to develop, improve and grow.  It is with this vision I announce that Digitalpress is entering a new phase of its development and has been acquired by a marketing communications consortium, Bridgestone Investments ("BSI") via its subsidiary National Print Express Holdings Pty Ltd ("NPEH"), where settlement took place on Monday, 3 February 2020.

Digitalpress has a long proud history, supporting many iconic brands, companies, agencies and government bodies nationally, and with this acquisition and in partnership with Bridgestone Investments we hope to further strengthen our relationships and expand our services to our customers.

Bridgestone Investments, albeit larger, share our values, which are to provide a local service to our national customers and continue producing 'beautiful print'.  Welcoming the acquisition, the CEO of Bridgestone Investments, Jahangir Khan said he was "excited about the prospect of working with a prominent industry leader in Theo Pettaras as well as adding a highly skilled multi award-winning team to our portfolio of companies.  As a result, Digitalpress will bolster our digital print production capabilities and conversely ensure a wider array of quality products and solutions for its customers with our ever-expanding suite of digital businesses". 

Since inception I have been fortunate to be a part of the successes of Digitalpress and feel blessed that today I continue into its future.  Working as a senior member of the group my role will focus on continued growth of the business by enhancing existing relationships and forging new ones. 

We are determined that this chapter charts new horizons for our beloved brand with the addition of high-quality equipment, a wider range of services and increased geographic footprint which keep to our unwavering commitment towards our customers.

What does this mean for you?
Even though everything including our core values is 'business as usual' at Digitalpress with our production facility remaining in Waterloo and the same great brand and people dealing with your requirements on a day-to-day basis.  There are however a few enhancements in the coming weeks that we are excited to tell you about, these include:

  • The addition of a 'print hub' in the heart of North Sydney, providing state-of-the-art digital printing capabilities, enhancing output, turnaround times and convenience for our Sydney CBD and North Sydney customers.
  • The installation of the latest HP 7R Indigo 6 Colour Press, which will provide un-matched digital offset quality for printing of high value applications and enhanced productivity.
  • The provision of broader printing services such as wide format and signage printing for point of sale and retail windows with the installation of Fuji Film flatbed printers and Kongsberg digital cutting machines.
  • Access to a suite of marketing services made available by companies operating as part of Bridgestone Investments, such as; customer insights/research, marketing distribution and loyalty platforms.
