OfficeMax poised for strong growth following business acquisitions and new division launch
OfficeMax® Australia Limited, a market leader in complete workplace solutions, has today announced its acquisition of private print management businesses Complete Print Solutions (CPS) and Foxprint Solutions, the latter jointly owned by CPS and LinFox Australia Pty Ltd. The move marks the launch of a new division for the company – OfficeMax Marketing Services.
A multi-billion-dollar global brand, in Australia OfficeMax is a leading supplier to the education, corporate, government and small business sectors. With the Australian print industry estimated at $7 billion, the acquisitions are an exciting catalyst for the company’s continued growth and increased penetration into its key markets.
Charles Agee, Managing Director of OfficeMax Australia and New Zealand and Senior Vice-President of OfficeMax Corporation, says: “Our clients are asking us to expand in multiple directions, with print management and corporate identity among the services they’re requesting most frequently. We saw a fantastic opportunity to extend our offering to Marketing Services, and acquiring CPS and Foxprint was a logical first step.
“From our heritage as a paper manufacturer 43 years ago, we have progressed to paper supplier and workplace solutions. Providing a broad spectrum of print and marketing solutions is a natural extension of that core business. This is the foundation on which we will build and continue to invest – in areas that drive shareholder return and value for our clients. It will be an exciting year ahead.”
The move will see the CPS business in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide and the Melbourne-based Foxprint business operate under the OfficeMax brand effective immediately. As part of the agreement, OfficeMax will take over all existing client contracts across a base of government, corporate, entertainment, manufacturing, FMCG, financial services, logistics and pharmaceutical industries.
