The move follows the successful acquisition of Durst distributor Photo Electronic Services (PES), based in the north-east of Melbourne. Durst Oceania’s headquarters will also be in Melbourne, close to the international airport and central business district in Tullamarine.

Matt Ashman, a long-serving employee of Durst, will be heading the company as managing director having recently taken up residency in Australia.

“I am delighted to be at the helm of a new era of what I am sure will be sustained growth for Durst in the region,” he says. “The market potential is huge. Durst Oceania is a strong economic region with a young entrepreneurial vibe. Its diverse population represents many different cultures from around the world.

He continues: “Customers in the region have really embraced our innovative technology – particularly the new P5 platform shown at Printex for the first time in August – and software solutions such as Durst Workflow, Dust Analytics and Durst Smart Shop.”
