McCollams was established in 1970. 40 years on we are still leading by example.
We employ the latest technology and the most committed people in the industry.
We have a reputation for meeting and exceeding customer’s expectations, delivering innovative solutions and very high quality manufacturing standards. Since 1993 we have accumulated 106 Gold Awards and 205 Highly Commended Awards and 2 Supreme Awards at the Pride in Print Awards.
We are experienced in complex and time critical distribution and service clients with local, regional and nationwide requirements. We have the full support and resources of our sister companies within the Blue Star Group, to manufacture and deliver time critical projects throughout NZ & Australia.
We place great store in our four core values:
1. WORK AS A TEAM
The principal of working together is a simple concept often talked about but rarely achieved.
Nevertheless, we believe our suppliers, customers, employees and shareholders all have an impact on each others' successes and the community they share.
In times of increasing change, we have to learn to work together to create certainty.
Internally we have strong, supportive relationships between all the businesses that make up Blue Star Print New Zealand. And externally, we place a huge emphasis on teamwork between our people, our customers and those who supply us. This has been essential in delivering value every day.
2. LET PEOPLE FLY
If there is one thing distinctive about Kiwis, it's our initiative. And that's something we passionately support as a New Zealand-owned business.
We don't constrain people. We give them the opportunity to learn, to expose them to challenges and help them experience success and create it together.
Achievers need good coaches. Not every step they make is a success, but a good coach ensures they focus on taking the next step forward rather than looking back.
You can't gain experience quickly. That's why we invest in it.
In addition to being one of the largest investors in printing technology in New Zealand, we are one of the largest employers in the New Zealand print industry.
3. DELIVER VALUE EACH DAY
What does it look like? Good value just feels right. You experience it. you understand it. And you can easily describe it when you've got it.
(Value is a sense of security. It's about being confident that you've made the right decision and are working with the best team.)
We recognise that delivering value is an ongoing commitment and that it will change over time. It starts with doing the basics, day in, day out, better than every other print provider.
When you think of us as a part of your team and encourage us to achieve more with you, we'll know we're really delivering value. That's what value looks like at Blue Star.
4. MAKE THE RIGHT DECISIONS
It is often said it is better to make a wrong decision than it is to make no decision at all. Very little is said about what makes a good decision.
For us, this means taking responsibility for the enduring impacts of the decisions we make and understanding the importance of making the right decisions.
At Blue Star we recognise the direct impact our commercial decisions have on our business, our people, their families, our customers, our community... the environment we all enjoy. We consciously favor decisions that protect our environment.
And we can do this because we are still a privately owned company. This gives us the flexibility and the freedom to make decisions based on long-term benefits rather than short-term gains.
