Words by Moreton Daily

Eckersley Print Group has continued to win awards on the national stage for the quality of its work and environmental sustainability in 2022, while remaining an active member of the Moreton Bay Region business community.

The family-owned company, which was founded more than 50 years ago and is based at Narangba, specialises in design, print, clothing, promotional, signage, warehousing and logistic solutions for its customers across Australia.

The business won the National Print Industry Awards National Environmental Sustainability Award in 2022. It also won 2022 National Silver Award for Leaflets/Brochures/Flyers (offset) and 2022 National Silver Award for Booklets/Catalogues/Magazines (offset).

Managing director Tom Eckersley has been a board member at Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT) since November 2017 and is an active member of the local business community.

Eckersley Print Group won the Moreton Bay Business Excellence and Innovation Awards Environmental Sustainability Award in 2021 and the Customer Service Excellence Award in 2020.

It is a group of niche print companies including Print Approach, Cross and Hamilton Printers, Easifile, The Printing Office, Nicholason Printers, ABC Print and Fine Print.

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented challenges for the business in the past couple of years, particularly with the global supply chain, but it has found ways to overcome them.

Tom says the Moreton Bay Region has been a “great spot to build and grow our business over the past 50 years”.

About Eckersley Print Group

The business was founded by James Eckersley in 1971, who dreamt of creating a printing business of his own. He named it Jannock Press, an English word meaning fair and straight forward.

The business has evolved since 1983, when current managing director Tom Eckersley started his print apprenticeship with the company.

He took up the role of managing director eight years later at the age of 25, when he acquired the business with brothers Jim and Luke. They renamed it Print Approach in 1991.

Under a strategic path of growth via acquisition, other companies joined the fold including Imprint, ABC Printing and Nicholson Printing, Easi-File, The Printing Office and Fine Print.

The company was rebranded Eckersley Print Group in 2017 and in 2018, added Cross and Hamilton Printers.

Eckersley Print Group is a recognised innovator and winner of multiple state and national industry awards for excellence in print.
