Print Companies in Box Hill South
When Tom Roberts set up camp near what is now Gardiners Creek and painted some of his iconic bush scenes, the area that was to become Box Hill South was indeed near-untouched bushland. Things have certainly changed, and began to alter with a vengeance with extensive post-war suburbanisation, including the development of a large Housing Commission estate. Nowadays, the suburb includes the Hayville Retirement Village, as well as several private and public schools and two kindergartens. Environmentally conscious residents ensure that Gardiners Creek Reserve and Artists Park are well maintained for future generations.
The market for print company services is steady and reliable, and augmented by the presence of some mixed industry, as mentioned below. Flyers and brochures are staple requirements of local business and industry, along with digital printing, and domestic needs include business card, stationery and full colour printing.
Box Hill South lies 14 km east of the Melbourne CBD, and comes under the City of Whitehorse. The suburb has no major shopping centres as such, but smaller strips are everywhere on and near major roads such as Canterbury Road and Station Street, Elgar Road, Riversdale Road, Middleborough Road and Mirabella Crescent. These are major thoroughfares familiar to most of Melbourne’s drivers.
Besides these major roads, there is also excellent public transport, including a tram and eight bus routes.
A highly residential and reasonably affluent, very settled area, Box Hill South also houses some industry, particularly along Middleborough Road. The City of Whitehorse operates its council depot here, with the Victoria State Emergency Service also housed on the site, and further along Bunnings Warehouse is a mecca for home renovators far and wide. There is also a large tissue factory in the suburb, and Hays International College provides a variety of training courses.
