THE OWNER of a new Redditch printing firm has credited commercial property agents John Truslove with the expansion of the business.
Webb Print & Display saved five jobs from a previous printing firm and has grown to employ ten people so far.
Owner Michael Corless now has plans to expand the business to employ 20 to 25 people within the next few years.
“From start to finish we had the keys in about a month, which enabled us to get off to a rapid start installing presses, laminators and other equipment,” Michael said.
“We began with a strong international customer base and good contacts in the industry but we wanted steady and controlled growth for the first few months.
“We’re now in a position to scale up the business and we are starting to target local businesses and companies across the region as new customers to help with our growth. We believe there is an enormous opportunity for us here.”
Webb P&D specialises in large format printing for retailers, brands and exhibitions markets, ranging from shop displays and signage to full exhibition and space acitvations.
The company’s base is a 11,500 sq ft unit with two floors of offices at the front and an enclosed gated concrete yard.
Ben Truslove, joint managing director at John Truslove, said: “With its regional and national reach, Webb has given itself a great start with a base located at the heart of the country’s transport network.
“Along with high quality, successful estates of industrial units like Colemeadow Road, it is making Redditch an attractive place for new and growing businesses.
