All Colour Media Printing in Clayton South, Victoria, has entered liquidation after racking up more than a million dollars in debt, with claims of unpaid benefits from former workers.

A Google review from Hui-Rong Gao, who claims to be an ACM employee, alleges that management owed wages and unpaid super to the workers. “I am only one of the many victims. As far as I know, there are many workers who have been owed wages by the boss,” said Gao, who added that complaints had been made with Fair Work. The Fair Work Ombudsman was not able to verify Gao’s claim at time of writing.

According to receivers Jirsch Sutherland, ACM was put into receivership on Wednesday October 3, and liquidators Dye and Co were called in on Friday October 5, under the terms of a debt finance agreement with Scottish Pacific Debtor Finance from mid-2017. Glenn Crisp and Malcolm Howell of Jirsch Sutherland are serving as receivers. “The company ceased to trade just prior to Glenn’s and Malcolm’s appointment and currently they are still undertaking their investigation to determine the financial position of the business,” said a Jirsch Sutherland spokesperson.

ACM management was unavailable for comment, as the phone number has been disconnected.
