Setting up two networks in one office...

Specs: Windows XP & 7
Here it is: I have 2 companies occupying one 2,800sq.ft. office building. Company01 is a real estate company, occupying 5-6 offices - each requiring a network connection. Company02 is a property management company, occupying 6 offices - each requiring a network connection. I currently have 2 separate incoming internet connections, however I'm only using one of them right now.
The only hurdle is the network printer. Actually, it's a multi-function business machine for printing, copying, & scanning- used by both companies in large volumes (at a cost of $8K).

Is it possible to create two separate networks and still enable both networks to access this printer? If so, how?

As suggested by 2 of the members who still post here, it maybe possible if the printer has a second interface but the smart thing to do would be to buy a second printer. The high volume that you mentioned calls for it.
