Linx to consolidate in new �6m St Ives HQ
INDUSTRIAL printer manufacturer Linx Printing Technologies is proposing to invest more than �6m in a purpose-built headquarters in St. Ives, it announced on Friday.
The major new development at Compass Point Business Park will unify the seven separate buildings Linx currently occupies, in Burrel Road, St Ives, into a single facility employing 250 people.
Linx is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of industrial printers for coding and marking of packaging and products, and celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.
Jennifer Honeycutt, Linx Managing Director, said: “At a time when the perception is of a contraction in British manufacturing, Linx is here to stay.”
A planning application has been submitted to Huntingdonshire District Council and, if approved, Linx hopes to transfer from its current HQ in spring 2013.
