Candida to downsize for new year

Candida to downsize for new year
Sydney envelope factory to close, new small one to open, staff to be reduced

Candida, a leading envelope manufacturer in Australia, is temporarily closing down its envelope production in Sydney, and resizing to a smaller production facility.

Ben Westall, managing director for Candida Stationery says, “We have branches in Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne. We are continuing our current manufacturing in Adelaide. We are shutting down our manufacturing in Sydney because we need a smaller branch, which we will be moving to.

“We are affected by Australia Post and their prices, and we have found it will be more cost effective for us to have a reduction in our business. We will have a smaller run, and it will be faster and more effective.

“We have had to resize so we will have to let some staff go. They are being paid appropriately and we will be helping them with the transition. It will not be happening until February."

Candida has been running for 41 years, with 200 staff across Australia and New Zealand.
