Green For Go As The Imaging Centre Invests In New HQ

Representing a major investment, digital printer and fulfilment company for hundreds of card publishers, The Imaging Centre is gearing up to move into a much larger state of the art premises, as well as installing a brand new additional printing press. 

4B. The Imaging Centre Unknown copyThe decision to relocate to a much larger HQ and warehouse is in support of the company’s ongoing growth and to better serve its customer base, which now comprises over 430 greeting card publishers which use its IC Simplicity system, with over 5,000 that have ordered through the company over the years.

“This is a massive investment for us, and part of our commitment to improve our services to the greeting card industry over the next 10 years,” explains Adam Shortmd of The Imaging Centre “We have other really exciting projects in the pipeline and this is the first part of our long term strategy,” he adds.

Work has already begun on the new site, which is in Marden (a short distance from its existing base) with the official move due to happen on January 4.

The additional warehousing space will enable The Imaging Centre to accommodate a brand-new press joining the two current ones it already keeps busy “Higher order volumes have seen the need for a larger, faster and even more efficient machine.

The HP Indigo 12,000 is the fourth series of Indigo press, producing the same professional quality printing, but in higher numbers,” adds Adam. “This will reduce turnaround times, and get orders direct to retail even faster than before. The new press produces larger B2 prints, which will allow us to offer a host of new products including sheet gift wrapping on demand.”

As part of the key environmental values the company holds, the new warehouse is part powered by renewable energy sources – and fittingly, the outside of the building is quite literally green.
