Staff and industry guests attended the launch, held on Tuesday 26 June, which highlighted the features and benefits the facility will offer students and the printing sector.
“We’re ensuring that we do have a positive [training] experience for our students, and, in our very short time of operation, we are having a very positive student experience in what we’re doing,” said Holmesglen’s Robert Black.

Mr Latina used his address to observe the potential the printing industry represents and its significant link to a variety of areas.
“You can’t think of one industry that is more diverse, more innovative and more adaptable than the printing industry. Today’s announcement highlights all the very best features of both industry, government and training, and the workforce. What we’ve got here today is something quite special,” he said.
