QLM Label Makers and Label Magic have merged their businesses to provide greater opportunities in Western Australia.

The businesses will collectively trade as QLM Label Makers in Perth, Western Australia.

Simon Pugh, QLM Group CEO, said: ‘Label Magic has a long history in the WA print industry and we are very excited to formally have it as part of the QLM Group. We have worked with Sandy and the team for many years and we were looking for ways to grow both businesses. We worked out that collectively we would be able to provide more opportunities for both clients and the teams.’

Label Magic’s decision to merge with QLM is the culmination of a strong trade partnership over the past five years. Label Magic director Sandy Bullied commented: ‘Merging with QLM seemed a natural progression. We have been working with QLM for so long we were part of the family, but as trade partners there were some limitations, particularly in the areas of large scale manufacturing. By merging, we see some real opportunities in this area. We also get to grow the opportunities for our team through the merger which is also exciting.’

QLM’s Australian general manager Andrew Siwicki added: ‘Label Magic and QLM are a perfect fit. Their strong values and local team have made the ability to combine seamless. Our recent upgrades to machinery in both large scale flexo and HP Indigo digital will be able to provide cost-effective solutions to the WA market, all backed up by a strong local team they are familiar with.’

QLM Label Makers is an Australian company with headquarters in Brisbane. It now employs over 100 staff locally in Western Australia and has a total of more than 600 staff across eight sites in seven countries around the Asia-Pacific region. It recently opened a new facility in Cambodia to target growth in emerging markets.
