News Corp to shut Queensland print facility

News Corp to close Queensland print centre

News Corp has kicked off responses with all personnel in its two printing centers in south-west Queensland since it seems to merge its operations to a single website.

The organization notes that its movement to digital-only because of the regional and neighborhood mastheads supposed the requirement only was not there anymore.

The Sunshine Coast Daily has proceeded on line

Consultation with employees and agents in the corporation’s print websites at Yandina and Murarrie started today and will finish at a fortnight.


Executive general director of manufacturing, logistics and land Marcus Hooke reported the business was facing an extra manufacturing capability.

“We’re working closely with all our personnel to guarantee the best possible results for all,” he further added.

News Corp asserted that as transitioning to electronic, there was a strong uptick in demand for internet subscriptions, together with 8, respectively 000 sold over 76 mastheads within the previous four weeks — even a documented growth of 200% over precisely the exact same period this past year.

In 2018, News Corp and its rival, subsequently called Fairfax (currently possessed by Six ) entered an arrangement to discuss printing presses in an attempt to save money. It led to the missing of around 120 permanent and casual jobs throughout NSW and Queensland.
