TEN YEARS OF EXCELLENCE: CELEBRATING A DECADE OF REDiNK
Just ten years ago, Australia was getting its hands on the first iPhone, global economies were crashing, and the Olympic team was reeling from bringing home 14 gold medals from Beijing. It was a monumental year for REDiNK as well— 2008 was the year our business started.
A decade is a long time for any business. And in today’s market, it’s no longer surprising to see startups and new companies shut down before even marking their 3rd year. In an industry as competitive and challenging as print, celebrating Ten Years in business is reassuring that we’re doing something right.
From A One-Man Show To A Thriving Business
To understand how far we’ve come, we’ve got to start with the man behind it all—Wayne Cottee.
Wayne started out as a print apprentice in 1990. Picking up knowledge about the business and building skills along the way, he steadily worked his way up in the industry. From the get-go, he knew he wanted to pursue a career in an industry where he can excel, challenge his creativity, and support his family at the same time.
All the years of learning and building his expertise finally came together when he founded REDiNK 18 years later. His initial plan was to work for himself and earn a decent living, but the business soon became so much bigger than that. Today, the company has grown into a team of passionate, creative, and driven professionals focused on reaching the highest quality of service and push the business to the next level.
Celebrating A Decade Of Excellent Service
The company may have grown from a solo business, but the driving principles that we hold as a small startup still hasn’t changed. The REDiNK Group is committed to making print and marketing solutions comfortable and convenient for businesses and organisations.
Our decades of expertise and the intense focus on excellent customer service is just what sets us apart. We provide end-to-end solutions to our clients, becoming a one-stop shop for all their print needs and beyond. Our team provides them with expert advice from planning to production, taking the legwork out of sourcing materials and communicating with suppliers. We offer a complete service by arranging distribution, installation, and even warehousing of branded collaterals. Clients can place their complete trust in us to deliver their projects on time, precisely according to brief, and always on the budget.
Looking Ahead To The Future
In celebration of our Tenth year, we’re strengthening our brand and increasing our offering even further. REDiNK Solutions, REDiNK Signs & Graphics and REDiNK studio has amalgamated and now operate under the one umbrella, hence our name REDiNK Group. With this step, we’re repositioning the business to expand our services, become more competitive in the market, and continue to bring in like-minded team members to further help our steady growth.
The next few years is going to be a wild ride. Our focus will be on the long-term stability of the business and the brand. For Wayne, this is also an opportunity to step back from day to day hands-on manufacturing and throw himself into the business side of things. By taking the time to better understand the needs of the company ensuring its long-term viability. REDiNK will continue to be competitive and is ready to explore new opportunities in the for many years to come.
