UK-based Linx Printing Technologies began construction of its new purpose-built headquarters in St. Ives, Cambridgeshire. The company plans to transfer from its Linx new HQsexisting premises in spring 2015.

The new development at Compass Point Business Park will consolidate the separate buildings currently occupied by Linx’s various operations in St Ives into a single facility employing 250 people. The 41,000-square-foot building will house the company’s research and development laboratories, sales and administration offices, manufacturing and assembly lines and storage and distribution areas, along with dedicated customer training facilities.

“Even during these recent troubled economic times, Linx has performed well, demonstrating that there is still demand for innovative and reliable equipment that meets the needs of all types of manufacturing operations,” says Nigel Hood, managing director. “Our new facility will enable us to build even further on this success with state-of-the-art product development, manufacturing, training and service facilities that will allow us to compete at the highest level in our global markets.”
