News Corp Australia has sold its print facility in Melbourne, Australia, GXpress reported.  

The company will be replacing the site and is looking for a location, according to GXpress. The company is believed to have purchased one double-width press for the center and has selected a second. Used Ferag mailroom pieces have apparently been gotten from another company, GXpress said.

The company’s Westgate Park facility, where six manroland Newsman 40 presses are found, was sold in spring, reportedly for $55 million (around $38 million U.S.) in a sale-and-leaseback arrangement.

News Corp Australia declined to comment to GXpress on the story.

The company has purchased a flexible Goss Uniliner T90 double-width press from Queensland for a new site. 

A second press, a manroland Geoman, is reportedly coming from a News Corp facility in Chullora, Australia, GXpress said.
