Print Companies in Essendon
Essendon is an inner suburb 10 km north west of Melbourne’s CBD. It is perhaps best known to many as the home of the Moonee Valley racecourse and, of course, the AFL’s Essendon football club, the ‘Bombers’. Essendon Airport, while not the people-moving international airport that is Tullamarine, is nonetheless one of the leading general aviation and corporate jet airports in Australia. The print industry benefits from a highly mixed local economy with this national and international overlay.
Essendon has a population that is very mixed though now quite affluent, with communities of young professionals, older traditional Australians and new migrants from every corner of the world living either in public housing or in Victorian terraces in leafy streets and cul-de-sacs. Schools are known for their progressive approach. They have ready access to frequent public transport – both train and tram will take you to the city in minutes – as well as major roads nearby and a thriving local shopping centre. This is Melbourne, of course, so cafes and classy restaurants also dot the main drag, as do ethnic eateries and shops that echo cultures from Asia to Africa. The Council is proud of its ‘green’ credentials and encourages a sustainable lifestyle, and keen to preserve architecture that often dates back to the early days of the city.
Essendon’s economy has links to the bigger business of large sporting clubs, the business and commercial network that is represented by the airport, as well as a healthy domestic market. The City of Moonee Valley is supportive of local business, taking care to inform locals of business networking opportunities and trader association news. Printing services are in demand in this active area with a wide range of needs that include not only business card and stationery printing but also brochure, catalogue and digital printing.
