IN good news for the Warwick region economy, it has been confirmed that the APN Print site on Kenilworth St in the new Axis Industrial Estate will remain open.

APN Australian Regional Media chief executive officer Warren Bright this week moved to dispel rumours that the plant was slated for closure, saying the company was committed to Warwick.

"I am aware there have been some concerns locally in recent weeks about the future of APN Print in Warwick, while an across-the-board review of our business structure has been undertaken," Mr Bright said.

"We have made the decision to keep the Warwick APN Print site open, and we remain committed to the plant being a major employer and a vital part of our commercial printing operation.

"The Warwick site services clients all along the eastern seaboard, everywhere from the Namoi Valley to north Queensland, and is also a major supplier to ACP Magazines."

Mr Bright said the APN Print Warwick plant underwent a total re-fit during 2009 and 2010, after earlier moving to the Axis estate from its original home at the Warwick Daily News building on Albion St.

APN Print Warwick employs more than 70 staff across a range of print, pre-press, stitch-and-trim and customer service roles and provides apprenticeship opportunities in the region.
