Managing director David Rands says this is an exciting time for DIC Graphics.
“During 2004 and 2005, we have seen strong growth for DIC in the Australian, New Zealand and Asian markets, and our challenge is to continue building quality business operations that service our customers,” he says.
DIC web director Ian Johns, says Darke is a big asset to the team.
“Our aim at DIC is to ensure continual improvement in planning, strategy and execution – and Meredith brings the right combination of skills to DIC and to marketing the leading brand of Coates web inks,” says Johns.
“As a market leader in Australia and New Zealand with premium quality products, we look to continually develop our business to enable us to respond quickly to market demands.”
Darke says she is looking forward to the challenge of her new role.
“My vision is to enhance DIC’s reputation in the market, and to further develop on DIC’s good relations, market credibility and integrity,” she says.
In Australia and New Zealand, worldwide ink supply leader DIC, comprising Coates ANZ and sister companies DIC Colortron and DIC International, has an annual sales turnover in excess of $150m and employs just over 200 people.
