‘We are incredibly humbled to combine these three great and innovative companies to provide Australian companies with truly Australian owned manufacturing,’ commented Simon Pugh, CEO of QLM Group. ‘The group continues to invest in leading technology and solutions across the labelling and packaging sector. 
‘We constantly strive for excellence to enable businesses and startups to compete and differentiate their products and shelf presence. We are delivering this to thousands of brands through competitive pricing, cutting edge technology, transparency and on demand lead times.’
Matt Ellis, managing director of Luminar Group added: ‘For over 20 years Luminar has been working with businesses to achieve great results by enabling access to high-quality packaging and beautiful labels produced locally, providing competitive pricing with the kind of transparency, honesty and fairness business owners need to grow.’

After 25 years it is time for us to grow and be able to deliver new technology, products and innovation for you. We hope you are as excited as we are,’ concluded Ross Read, founder of Read Labels & Packaging.
