PRINT21 PODCAST EP50: A BIG MONTH IN PRINT

In the latest episode of the print podcast, It’s Been A Big Month in Print, industry insiders Wayne Robinson and Lindy Hughson analyze, assess and interpret April’s top news, trends, issues and developments.

We start by assessing the $15 billion Future Made in Australia manufacturing plan, which appears to include nothing for printing, the country’s largest manufacturing industry.

The discussion then moves on to unpacking the factors impacting this month’s outdoor printing and market movements in the wide format market, which has seen another major collapse.

Analyzing: Lindy Hughson and Wayne Robinson

We also examine the massive investment in folding cartons with International Papers’ $9.9 billion acquisition of DS Smith, and Smurfit Kappa’s $11 billion acquisition of WestRock, and wonder what it all means for local printers looking for box printing.

Finally, we assess the continued growth of women’s representation in the printing and packaging industries, and ask whether things have really changed.
