From small beginnings...
Richard Croad - General Manager
In 1983, in a rented shed, with just a laminator and sheeting machine, Graham Eagle started Printstock's journey to being a key player in the NZ Print industry.
Focussed on the needs of its customers and employing highly skilled staff Printstock has established a stellar reputation with some of New Zealand's largest and most respected brands.
40 years of loyal service and excellence have ensured we have the clients and the products to rightfully claim our place in the New Zealand market for flexographic printing and complex laminates.
Graham sold the business to Gourmet Foods Ltd in 2020. Sadly Graham passed away in April 2021.
It's a privilege to continue his legacy in the beautiful Hawke's Bay.
Based in Napier, Hawke's Bay, every day our 3 flexographic printing presses and our 3 laminators produce many thousands of metres of 1st class product for happy customers all over New Zealand.
We process a full range of film, foil, paper and board and are proud to have provided embossed foils to New Zealand's most trusted chocolate brand for over 20 years.
To complete the set, we have a bagging machine, sheeters, guilotines, and a die cutter, ensuring we can meet the majority of needs for clients in the food, floristry and gift wrap sectors.
With extensive operations management experience overseas and in New Zealand, Richard continues our strong client focus and brings a fresh perspective to the business.
With one eye on quality and the other on the evolving demand for sustainable solutions, both clients and staff benefit from Richard's insights and experience.
When not at work he'll be found with his family, lost in the hills on his mountain bike, or busy in the kitchen.
Nigel Armstrong - Factory Manager
Nigel started in the printing business in 1985, working for some of New Zealand’s leading printing and laminating businesses.
With Printstock since 1995, he brings invaluable knowledge of all things printing and laminating to our clients and staff.
As Factory manager, Nigel keeps everything running smoothly while looking for improvements in throughput and quality. Nigel also oversees the installation and development of our machines.
When not at work he's usually finding ways to ride his motorbike or officiate at race meetings.
Debbie Harrison - Office Manager
Debbie joined Printstock in 2000 and has kept our clients happy and our accounts in order ever since.
Debbie will most likely be the cheery voice you hear when you call.
Debbie thrives on the variety and rewards of working with our customers, suppliers, and staff.
As a mother of three, including twin girls, and now a proud grandmother, Debbie knows all about being attentive and efficient whilst balancing demands from all directions.
