Well-known industry identity Andy McCourt will be the editor of Labels Plus Magazine from 2020, following the retirement of founder Roger Coles.
Says McCourt: “I’d like to acknowledge Roger’s incredible contribution to the Australian and New Zealand Label and Flexographic Industry over the years, in bringing the latest technology and other news to the market. I tip my hat to him, as he always has done in the editorial page of Labels Plus – an Akubra I think. I hope I prove worthy of Roger’s legacy!” Andy has been an editor and writer for trade journals here and globally for over 30 years and has always kept abreast of leading-edge technologies and trends.
Labels Plus is the FPLMA’s official journal and ANZ/Oceania’s only magazine dedicated to Labels and light Flexible packaging (pouches that can be produced on Label presses), and is now jointly owned by the Visual Connections industry association, so any profits are ploughed back into the industry via events, scholarships and so on. It is currently quarterly and the first issue of 2020 has the theme ‘Hybrid Presses’ and will be published in late February/March.
Editorial contributions are invited and all advertising inquiries can be sent to Matthew Callahan on email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
