Territory business on track to transform packaging and labelling services

NT Government

The Territory Government continues to grow and diversify our advanced manufacturing industry, and has today announced a $492,000 investment into new proven, unmatched digital printing technology for the territory.

Colemans Printing, which has branches in Darwin and Alice Springs, will introduce a brand new HP digital label solution with custom finishing capabilities, which will cater specifically to Northern Australia climates, and provide traceability, artificial intelligence and augmented reality.

The technology will enable Colemans to support industry needs, including the transition to National Packaging Sustainability Targets, which states that 100 per cent of packaging must be reusable, recyclable, or compostable by 2025.

It will also reduce the need for businesses to outsource similar capabilities from interstate, with Colemans able to supply important sectors including shipping, oil and gas, mining, health, agriculture, and beverages and food.

The technology is a collaboration between Colemans Printing, Currie Group and Charles Darwin University, and it is the latest project to be supported by the Advanced Manufacturing Ecosystem Fund (AMEF).

The AMEF is administered by the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre, as part of an $8.75 million partnership with the Northern Territory Government over five years.

Colemans Printing marks the seventh project across the Territory to be awarded co-investment through the AMEF.
