The Pemulwuy plant is located 1.8km away from Hally’s previous Greystanes site, and is open-plan, temperature-controlled, and laid out specifically to promote efficient production workflows.
Hally – which does not speak to trade publications – says, “A dedicated print room for our digital gear is also housing some new kit that we installed during the move.”
Launched in New Zealand in 2016, Hally Express is the company’s flexible service offering a five-day turnaround.
Hally Labels says its specialty has been in make-to-stock labels, with Hally Express created to produce make-to-order, short-run work.
“Our streamlined workflows ensure a quick response without compromising on quality.
“Make-to-order, longer run work is held as stock on the shelf for clients to immediately draw off. This option is best suited to labels that rarely change, are required in reasonable volumes, and their usage can be readily forecasted.
“We currently have a five-day lead time for specific Australian clients but will rebrand our entire Sydney site Hally Express early in 2018.”
Hally Labels, which at the time operated only out of Brisbane in Australia, bought the Sydney based AC Labels business five years ago, and it is this site that is being moved. The company had two HP Indigo digital label presses.
Hally Labels has four full-production sites between New Zealand and Australia, and is owned by Hexagon Holdings, which has Tom Sturgess as its chairman. Hexagon bought Hally Labels three years ago.
Hexagon also owns four other label manufacturing businesses across Australia and New Zealand; Adhesif Labels in Sydney and Auckland; Kiwi Labels, and Market Labels, both in Christchurch, along with PanPrint and Rapid Labels, both in Auckland.
Australian Printer contacted Hally Labels to ask about the new site and dates around Hally Express, but was told the company does not speak to trade publications.
