Ball & Doggett buys Conect Enterprises from Coniglio family

Leading consumables supplier Ball & Doggett is excited to announce the agreement to acquire leading Sign, Display & Digital supplier Conect Enterprises, with a completion date set for the 1st of September 2022. This represents the latest step in M&A activity, since the 2017 merging of BJ Ball and KW Doggett and ownership by Japan Pulp & Paper.

BallDoggett logo"As Australia’s largest distributor of printable materials and consumables, this acquisition further solidifies Ball & Doggett’s already strong position as a leading supplier into the Signage market," says the company in the acquisition statement.


Conect Enterprises was established in 1985 and is privately owned by Tony & Pam Coniglio, who will stay with the business for a short transition period. Conect has offices and distribution sites in both NSW and Victoria.


“We are looking forward to, over time, integrating the Conect team with Ball & Doggett. We will continue to invest in the Signage market to ensure we provide greater customer value,” says Rob Brussolo, General Manager - Sign, Display & Digital for Ball & Doggett.Conect Logo


Ball & Doggett has a history of acquiring organisations to further strengthen and diversify their offering to the market. Pre the B & D merger, BJ Ball acquired several organisations including Access Paper, Longbottom Paper and Servicom and more recently under Ball & Doggett, acquiring packaging distributor, Paperquest.


“This is an exciting next step in our diversification strategy and we welcome the Conect Team into the Ball & Doggett (Japan Pulp & Paper) family, further strengthening our offer to the Signage market,” says Luke Wilkinson CEO Ball & Doggett.

Conect will continue to trade independently for the time being to ensure a smooth transition for staff, customers and suppliers.


Tony Coniglio, owner of Conect, says: ‘’This acquisition is good for our customers, suppliers and staff. Ball & Doggett have the resources and infrastructure to take the business forward. It is about leveraging our combined strengths to provide greater value and options to support our customers.”

A special email address, contacting National Marketing Manager Tony Bertrand, has been set up for all enquiries and questions: conect@ballanddoggett.com.au
