There are obvious advantages for a marketing and mailing company to be within striking distance of a sorting office.

So, when then-St Ives-based First Mailing started a search for bigger premises for its expanding business, it asked Huntingdonshire District Council to help find something suitable.

Now the company's new offices and warehouse in Glebe Road, Huntingdon, a few hundred yards from the Royal Mail's sorting office in St Peter's Road, have been officially opened by Jonathan Djanogly MP and John Bridge, chief executive of Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce.

Stuart Searle, First Mailing's managing director, said: "We have been trading now for 10 years and business is going from strength to strength - we needed to expand and take the next step.

"In recent months we have become a Sony approved partner and are now able to offer exclusively a new disc-based product that we have developed jointly with them.

"We are entering an exciting period and although we do business on an international level we want to retain a local, friendly service to all our customers."
