As at 16th March 2020, Southport Printing Co. remains open for business and is operating at 100% capacity. Like most people, we are closely monitoring developments in the global Covid-19/Coronavirus pandemic and ensuring we are up to date with the latest recommendations and guidelines from the Australian and Queensland Government agencies.
Our thoughts remain with everyone who has been affected.
As this is a rapidly changing situation, we want to take this opportunity to share our current and future plans with our valued clients and suppliers.
Supporting Australian Businesses Through Our Supply Chain
We’re a small family owned and operated business. Our team of 20 employees and their families all live on the Gold Coast and love being a part of this community. One of our principles has always been “live local, buy local” so we’ve kept a focus on supporting other small independent businesses where possible and sourcing resources from other Australian owned suppliers.
Maintaining Operations at 100% Capacity
There is currently no need for us to change the way we operate. Our team members are not currently in a risk category that needs to be isolated and our suppliers have assured us that there is currently adequate stock located in Australia that can be dispatched within our normal ordering timeframes. Our warehouse is fully stocked and there is no delay or impact to customer fulfillment at the moment.
Job Security for the Southport Printing Co. Team
Should government advice change, or economic impacts start to be felt, our management team, including CEO Ian Harry and Director of Operations Andrew Kelly, have expressed a commitment to ensuring that our team do not need to be concerned with job security. We are ready to move office staff members to a work from home arrangement if necessary and have a cross trained team to help the business run smoothly if anyone needs extended personal or carer’s leave.
Supporting Our Clients However We Can
Southport Printing Co. is responsive and adaptive to our clients’ needs. If your business is cancelling face to face meetings, we can call or Skype you instead. We’re still able to offer fast turnaround service if you need to get messages out quickly as the situation unfolds.
Please keep in touch with us so we can collaboratively continue working on your business goals.
