The Colemans Team
Our Team of Specialists
Together, our management and specialised print staff have over 300 years’ of combined experience in the printing industry. Colemans is proud to be a family owned and operated business whose managers are not afraid to get their hands dirty and help out on the printing floor and across multiple businesses.
Tony Coleman, Managing Director oversights the Darwin and Alice Springs factories. Tony started his career in 1996 as an apprentice Print Machinist and worked his way through the ranks, overseeing all areas of the business. Tony is a hands-on manager having had the role of Production Manager and now holds the company reins as the third generation Managing Director.
Tony is closely supported by a management team based in Darwin and Alice Springs of very senior staff in many fields of the print and design industry. We pride ourselves in investing in our staff, with more than 25% of our staff employed for 10 years or more. Our company is committed from very early days to the skilled training of apprentices and in recent years can boast no less than one new apprentice employed per year (on average).
Our Darwin production is headed by Phil Donnelly, who has more than 30 years in the industry and a wealth of happy clients.
Both Tony and Phil are Master Printers as they were the first in Northern Australia to be trained as Heidelberg International Print Machinists when the first Speed Master and CD102 offset presses were delivered to our Darwin factory more than 10 years ago. Phil is supported by a strong team of Print Machinists with a wealth experience and an eye for detail to match.
Our factory is further supported by qualified Print Finishers who are skilled in many aspects of print finishing, including binding and embellishments. They are true craftsmen.
All our printers, print finishers and designers are qualified and our team of experts are the best in the Northern Territory to help you with all your printing and design needs.
Our friendly print consultants understand print and can help you with any print or design query, no matter how big or small.
Colemans Alice Springs
Located in one of the most remote commercial centres in Australia, Coleman’s has been in Alice Springs for over 25 years. Our Alice Springs factory produces work for a wide gamut of customers from tourism operators and government departments to companies and businesses from the outlying region.
Jeremy Bigg, General Manager of Coleman’s Printing orchestrated the company’s move into custom-built premises and saw the installation of a Heidelberg Printmaster 52-4 colour press. The “biggest thing that’s ever happened to Coleman’s in Alice Springs” is the installation of a new CTP system – the Suprasetter A52 – which Jeremy says has streamlined workflow and improved productivity far beyond his expectations.
Jeremy is supported by a strong team of print and design specialists. Need a friendly quote, drop into our Alice Springs office for a chat about any print and design requirement.
