Mediapoint investing $4m
Business builds site to house new equipment

Trade wide format printer Mediapoint is expanding its print area to 400 square metres to accommodate new equipment, adding to its investments totalling $4m over the past 12 months.

Owners Jamie and Jason Xuereb have added to Mediapoint’s finishing department, buying a Josting Guillotine, Plast Grommet eyelet presses and a Lesiter Banner welder to decrease finishing times and expand its next day service offering.

Jamie Xuereb, owner of Mediapoint says, “With the expansion, we have more capacity. Things will get done quicker, meaning greater satisfaction for customers.”

 “We will be installing two printing devices in the first quarter of 2018. This will increase our printing capacity by 300 per cent, and open us up to adding new product offerings to our range. To do this we already have to increase our printing department space internally in the factory to ensure we keep a consistent printer environment that we currently have.”

“As for that new equipment, we will announce it early next year.”

Earlier this year the company relocated to Derrimut Victoria, to a facility five times larger than its previous location.

Xuereb says, “Our reputation is good, we are delivering what we promise in quality. Lots of businesses want to work with us and we make sure that our customers are satisfied. We are a trade wide format printer, so we make wide cut products, posters and banners and so on.

“We believe in our business for the long term, in helping our customers. We are helping small printers play big, by allowing our customers to leverage our investment. We believe in manufacturing in Australia and will continue to solely produce everything we offer in Australia and not offshore.

The Melbourne based company has been run by the Xuerebs for 11 years. The brothers were voted number 10 in ProPrint’s Power 50 this year.
