Stream Solutions 

 

 

Since it was founded by the current CEO, Andrew Price, in August 1998, Stream has become
Australia's leading Print Management company. The Stream model offers an outsourcing solution
package of design input, online pricing, procurement, warehousing, inventory management,
online ordering and delivery of print and other marketing collateral to major Australian and
international companies such as Westpac, Telstra and Centrelink.

Stream Solutions was acquired by Wolseley in April 2000. Over the period of Wolseley's
involvement, Stream undertook a complete strategy overhaul and was corporatised. In so
doing, it won six of the largest national contracts and successfully aquired Southern Print
Management (2001) as a means to expand operations into Melbourne. Over the period from
April 2000 to May 2007, Stream Solutions increased revenue from $10 million to $120 million,
delivering strong EBIT and cashflow growth.

Wolseley progressively exited its shareholding in Stream to Toll Holdings with a final exit in 2007.
