Franklin exterior

Our Heritage

80+ years in the making.
Our philosophy was set down in 1936, and continues today.

Franklin WEB opened for business in 1936 under the name of The Franklin Press and was soon garnered a reputation both for good quality and great service.

The ethos for the business was simple: to provide customers with the best service and quality possible with the tools at hand. Always working with the most cutting-edge technology to delivery unsurpassed excellence. The Franklin Press business model was visionary, inspiring and underpinned by raw passion.

Franklin WEB started from a single fronted shop in Footscray (1936) and grew to be a very successful business with acreage in Sunshine, Victoria.

Then in December 2016, ASX listed diversified print and marketing communications business IVE Group Ltd acquired Franklin WEB. Seeing the success and the value Franklin WEB offers to their customers, IVE Group wanted to expand into Large Format Web Offset Catalogue Printing to complement and expand their market offering. Franklin WEB was a perfect fit.

With the success of the acquisition and the demand for catalogue printing increasing, IVE Group announced it would expand the Franklin WEB business into NSW. A new purpose-built, highly specialised web offset facility located in Huntingwood, NSW was built and launched ahead of schedule. The operation has been up and running since November 2017.

Through all this change, the same values apply for Franklin WEB: innovation, excellence and service.
