CPI Group History

CPI was established in Victoria in September 1977 by Peter Sajet and Daryl Lea under the name Consolidated Paper Industries Holdings. Over time, the company moved to expand its distribution network with a concerted push interstate. CPI listed on the ASX in 1992. The company sold its 50% holding in the Raflatac Oceania partnership (a 50/50 joint venture with Raflatac Oy) to its JV partner in FY00 and its 50% stake in the Braeside Partnership in FY01. In mid 2002 the Trading arm was divested.
