Sydney’s Imagination Graphics will soon be back in full operation after floodwaters ripped through its factory last month with insurance approval now in to order new machinery including a Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1.
Imagination Graphics owner Emmanuel Buhagiar says he is expecting a replacement for the destroyed Konica Minolta AccurioPress C6100 to be delivered in the next seven days with a longer wait time on a new KM-1.
He has also ordered the latest AccurioPress to come to market – the C14000 – which he is very excited about.
“After weeks and weeks of working things out with the insurance company, we are happy to announced that they have approved everything and we can start ordering new machinery,” Buhagiar said.
“It has been frustrating and very tough on all of us. I want to thank my staff also as they have been wonderful through all the adversity.”
Buhagiar and his team woke up on Monday 10 February to discover almost knee deep water had ripped through the factory in Sydney’s St Peters destroying everything in its path. The flood came after Buhagiar made a significant investment in the KM-1 last year and held an official launch party for the new press, dubbed Kimmy, in December.
