VFX to go west in 24/7 robots move
Major Sydney wide-format business VFX Print Group is moving out of its high profile premises in Leichhardt after 25 years, seeking a bigger building with room for robots as the next stage of its growth.
John Hatzigiannis, managing director of VFX said, “We need more room for all our new robotics and new machinery – we’re looking to streamline and get more efficiency so we can work seven days a week, 364 days per year.
“The industry’s changed so quickly, it’s online and such now, so that’s why we need to be more central, faster, and more efficient at what we do. Customers are demanding that, so that’s what we’re doing.”
VFX is looking for a more centrally-placed location than its Parramatta Road site, says Hatzigiannis, who has planned the move to Western Sydney for a year and a half.
“Leichhardt was great 25 years ago when we bought the building, but we service all of Sydney more now, so we’re going to a location with better access.
“We own the building still, so we’re renting it out. I’m looking for a pretty big corporate or someone else after a main road position – it’s not a cheap building. It sees 85,000 cars per day, so if you want exposure, you want a main road site – everyone knows us, so we don’t need that any more,” he said.
All staff and equipment will move to the new location, which is planned to be a single-level building instead of the current three.
The building is up for lease through real estate agents Kristian Morris and Lachlan Palm of Ray White.
