Business is booming for printing companies based in Glasgow
December 5, 2010 by Gareth
Print companies in Glasgow seem to be bucking the downward trend set by the recession, with growth being announced for several firms in the industry. Glasgow-based Labelgraphics announced further investment in printing technology last week, along with a five year expansion plan. Labelgraphics produces adhesive labels for various businesses throughout the UK, mainly for drinks and electronics companies. The good news for printing companies based in the Glasgow area is that this growth and expansion is not limited to large companies like Labelgraphics. Smaller local print firms who offer services like brochure, leaflet and POS printing in Glasgow are also reporting a steady increase in business despite the current economic climate.
Glasgow printing companies are attributing some of their success to the increased awareness about the value that marketing and promotions can add for local businesses. This mentality has been embraced by The Glasgow City Marketing Bureau as they have used local companies for services like poster printing to promote Glasgow as a destination for European business travel and meetings. These marketing materials were then shown at a recent business travel conference in Barcelona and were designed to attract more people to the city on business.
This increased faith in the city is translating well for local business as it means increased promotion and increased custom from both local people and visitors alike. With this increased demand for poster and brochure printers, Glasgow companies look set for expansion across the board, whatever the size of their firm.
