The six-figure deal will see the Gold Coast firm produce natural plywood panels for the Mater Children’s Hospital, said managing director Peter Arman.
Central Imaging will use the new Agfa flatbed to print artworks on to the panels, which are intended to bring an attractive and consistent look to the common areas on the Mater’s five floors.
Arman told ProPrint that job was forecast to take at least eight months.

“Since putting in that new flatbed, we’ve been inundated with work. We’ve already generated $100,000 of work from that machine in three months,” said Arman.
“[The hospital] contacted us. We don’t market or use sales reps. People just know us. I find as soon as you put new equipment in, the word gets out that you’ve got the best quality and people find you.”
Central Imaging has also profited from an HP Designjet L28500 latex printer it installed on October 15, said Arman.
The Designjet was used to manufacture the backlits and banners for the Versace store in the Gold Coast Hilton, he said.
The four-person outfit has been helping Versace change its imaging and graphics every season since the store opened, said Arman.
