Queensland Government printer entity, Goprint is now celebrating its 150th anniversary. Goprint was set up in 1862. That time, the main tasks of the entity involved printing acts, bills, and other tabled documents.
Goprint comprises a main press of six-color KBA Repeater 105, along with a Heidelberg Speedmaster 102.
The completion of 150 years was marked by a grand party and a visit by Government Services Minister Simon Finn. Simon also addressed the crowd of staff and customers with his speech.
Goprint acting general manager Scott Albury said: "the evening included a display of printed material from the late 19th century to today. Guests were also able to inspect a hand press and an old lino-type machine. He also described the sector as "very competitive", because while Goprint is only allowed to do government work, private printers are allowed to tender for government contracts."
