         Jet celebrates 40 years in business
Industry supplier Jet Technologies is celebrating 40 years of service, innovation, and expertise in the Australian, New Zealand and global industrial printing and packaging industries.
   The family-owned and operated business is a leading specialist importer and distributor
of printing and packaging products, both hardware and consumables.
Jack Malki, director,
Jet Technologies said: “Jet Technologies is proud to be celebrating its 40th anniversary as a leader in the industry, and to be showcasing the hard work of its industry expert staff
who continue to deliver their customers in Australia and globally, the knowledge and practical knowhow to provide premium quality products and outstanding service.”
The story of Jet Technologies began when managing director Albert Malki and his family made their journey from Italy to Australia back in 1980. When Albert and his family emigrated to Australia, hardly able to speak English, the landscape was vastly different, with difficulties faced in assimilating into the Australian culture. With this very obstacle in mind, Albert decided to start a company called Jet Overseas

Trade, to facilitate trade of
a varied range of products between Australia and Europe.
Industrial products were added over the years, including surfactants and aluminium.
By the late 1980s, Amcor requested the assistance of
Jet Overseas Trade in working with the Cerutti group, an Italian manufacturer of gravure printing presses, and from there grew the print division of the company.
“We pride ourselves on our strong family-based values, which we translate to our staff and our culture; investing
in our staff to build long- lasting relationships with our customers, and striving to deliver genuine and expert service always,” Albert Malki, managing director, said.
Working originally from offices in Sydney’s Bondi Junction, the team quickly expanded, and in 2001 moved to a larger location in Alexandria and became Jet Technologies.
With further growth, including the addition of new team members in South Australia, Victoria and New
Zealand, Jet Technologies moved to even larger locations with warehouses in Mascot, and then its current headquarters in Rosebery.
The Rosebery site features a state-of-the-art demo centre and a purpose-built ink management facility.
Jet Technologies now also has a state-of-the-art office- warehouse in Melbourne.
