Keeping product ranges relevant in consumables

This article first appeared in the November 2022 issue of Australian Printer authored by Currie Group national sales manager – ink, Colin Edwards

2022 was yet another challenging year for consumables. It was still seeing the effects of COVID, but this time around, international freight has heavily impacted it from a cost and supply perspective.

Product costs have also continued rising over the past two years due to shipping, raw materials and supplier increases which has proved challenging for distributors, suppliers and customers.

However, in saying that, there will always be a need for consumables within the offset market. So, Currie Group needs to supply the products that work for our customer from a quality and price perspective.

We have been consistently working for months behind scenes to ensure that we have sufficient products to stock to supply our customers.

We are always working to get the best fit for our customers’ needs and this means that we have had to continually push our suppliers to continue R&D to improve the products that we offer as it needs to specifically work for our customers’ requirements.

In the last 12 months, Currie Group has been providing a large variety of conventional, UV, LED inks and a full array of consumables into its lithographic printing market for both conventional and UV users. It is always looking to supply the products that work for its customer’s needs.

It supplies a full range of Save Blankets, Hi Tech Coatings, Toyobo Plates, UV/LED Katsura Rollers, Tyre F Coating Blankets, Finito Packings, Pavan Super Packings and a full range of chemicals including Hurst chemicals, in addition to other products. It supplies almost anything that is used in an offset printing factory.
