“Our compound sales growth over the past 10 years has averaged 13.5 percent per annum which is testament to the long term strategy of the company and the dedication of the Colorpak team to provide the best service to customers," Mr Commins said.
 
The Colorpak business dates back to the 1920s and has grown to become a prominent participant in the $620m folding carton segment of the paper and board packaging industry in Australia.
 
It has grown from 36 people and $1.5m turnover in 1985 to approx 670 people and revenues of more than $170m in 2013.
