Callprint Unveils Plans for Birmingham Expansion

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Print and visual communications specialist Callprint has unveiled plans for an expansion of its Midlands-based Birmingham hub, which will see the company move to a new city centre location, double the size of its current base. 

The Birmingham facility, currently situated in a 6,000sq ft. space on Smallbrook Queensway, will move its base to a site close to the Aston Expressway and M6 motorway, and take up residence in a 12,000sq ft. new facility with effect from May this year.

This will provide the Birmingham operation with the ability to display on-site, all of its small to large format, litho, signage, and point-of-display and exhibition installation offerings, allowing customers to see what the company can provide in terms of services. Exhibition and installation work will also now be able to be constructed on-site, prior to despatch to its final destination.

3d construction of architectural and mechanicals will also now be provided on-site, adding a further capability to the Birmingham base’s in-house offerings. 

The new facility will also operate as the print and distribution hub for all online sales from Callprint's new e-commerce site, which is set to launch soon.

In addition, the expansion will allow the Birmingham hub to also offer vehicle signage and wrap work, with customers being able to drive into the space and have vehicles wrapped or liveried on site.

The new site will include a 2,000sq ft. meeting area, enabling customers and clients to come in and view jobs on site if required, and will provide a 10,000sq ft. industrial print area. As part of the development plans, investment in new equipment will also happen, with a second Arizona UV flatbed printer due to come in once the new site is up and running.

Speaking about the new premises and expansion plans, Callprint Birmingham’s Sales Director, Fabian Porter, stated, “We had to move as we have currently outgrown our present base. This new site will enable us to expand our offerings considerably, and allows customers to come in and see their jobs being created on site. This will provide clients with the confidence that their work is being processed and handled correctly.”

Fabian added, “From design to installation, we will now be able to offer the whole procedure in-house from our new facility.”

The move will also see the Birmingham facility switch to a 24hour operation, whereas it currently operates a double-day shift, and this will provide opportunities for new personnel to be taken on as well.

Callprint Birmingham’s client base includes customers from local government, retail, advertising and architectural and construction sectors.

This latest move underlines Callprint’s recent statement of intention to grow and develop its business operations, (following the addition of Jupiter Visual Communications as a stand -alone business last year) through organic acquisitions and the addition of new personnel.
