Apex Digital Graphics, Hemel Hempstead and Leeds, the official UK distributor of Ryobi MHI printing equipment, Screen and CRON computer-to-plate solutions, and UK dealer for Konica Minolta digital equipment, has announced that it has made a move to new premises in its home town of Hemel Hempstead.
Following the end of the lease at its Maxted Road premises the decision was taken to re-house the business in recently constructed offices providing a slightly better-sized facilities for the current shape of the business. “We have enjoyed a very successful ten years in Maxted Road,” said Managing Director Bob Usher. “As we all know, the printing industry has changed since the recession, and we have adjusted our operations to fit the needs of our customers. The new building is ideal for our current needs and what we anticipate will be our requirements moving forward.”
The new 15,000 square foot premises will provide a storage and distribution centre for supplies and spare parts, a showroom facility for litho presses, digital printing equipment, and pre-press products, as well as office and meeting room space for the company.
The move brings the company close to the offices of Print Efficiently partner IFS – the post-press specialist that moved to Boundary Way in October of 2014 – but also closer to the Buncefield oil refinery: the site of a huge explosion soon after Apex had moved to its previous premises. “Thankfully there is a lot less fuel stored at the facility now, and one would like to think that there are more stringent safety measures in place as well,” added Mr Usher.
A showroom facility is currently under construction, and an official opening of the new premises is being scheduled for later in the year and will be fully operational for the Print Efficiently event being staged together with IFS on 6/7/8 and 20/21/22 October 2015.
