Printing supplies firm moves closer to Cambridge

February 24, 2012 by  

A major printing supplies company has decided to make the move closer to Cambridge as part of business expansion plans.

McKinley’s, a company that supplies finishing, packaging and binding products to printing companies in Cambridge and throughout the UK, recently made the decision to move to a new site to be closer to Cambridge. The move allows McKinley’s to expand its business. The new premises that it has acquired covers around 40,000 square feet, significantly larger than its current location in Harlow.

The move not only allows McKinley’s to distribute its products to local printing companies and print shops in Cambridge, but is also a real boost to the local economy. The building acquired by McKinley’s was standing empty due to the fact that its previous tenants had gone into administration in 2011. The acquisition of the property has been handled jointly by two firms, Cheffins and Edward Symmons. Phillip Woolner of Cheffins spoke about the fact that McKinley’s had acquired the building, saying:

“This is a very significant freehold sale in the current economic climate and will be a major boost.”

The new McKinley’s building is located in the Shire Hill Industrial Estate near Saffron Walden, which is situated just off the M11, giving the distributor easy access to Cambridge which is just 17 miles North of the site. The move may also be a boost to the local jobs market as McKinley’s looks to expand and grow its business, although no statement has been issued to support this yet.
