Melbourne-based wide format industry supplier Charti has extended its national network with the acquisition of Stanton Media, a Brisbane cut-sheet and large format media supplier.
Stanton Media owner Gary Epps, who’s retiring from the industry, says wide format specialist Charti was the perfect choice to take over his business because of similar goals and interests.
“Stanton has been operating for over 15 years and we pride ourselves in our longstanding commitment to great service and product innovation,” says Epps. “Charti’s business values and work ethic are well aligned to what we had, which was why I decided to proceed with them.”

Charti managing director David Cheng says Stanton is a great strategic fit for the company. “This means we can start offering a much wider range of paper sizes for customers as we now have the resources to convert massive paper rolls into smaller ones. I am thrilled and excited about the doors that have been opened for us."
Cheng has more than 13 years’ experience in the printing industry and previously worked at companies including GBC, Alloys and Neopost.
Australian-owned Charti, established 2016, is a nationwide supplier of large format printing supplies, with a warehouse located at Williamstown North in Melbourne and support offices in Brisbane and Shenzhen, China.
Charti sells printing machines from major brands including Epson, Canon and Mimaki, and distributes a wide range of media and supplies.
