Ligare's history

Ligare is Latin for 'bind' which indicates Ligare's origins as a bindery to the printing industry. In 1979 Richard Celarc, Ligare's current Executive Chairman, was one of the founding partners of the bindery in Sydney. Over the subsequent 30 plus years, one building grew to five buildings joined together, and one case-binding line grew to a plant which now offers all in-house:

  • Case-binding and hand-finishing
  • Two integrated paperback binding lines
  • Mono, two colour, four colour and eight colour offset sheet presses
  • 3 web offset presses
  • State of the Art Digital mono, colour and binding facility
  • Logistics management including mailing service and warehousing facilities
