GLOBAL TECH FIRM OPEN ADVANCED FACTORY IN LIVERPOOL
An international developer and manufacturer of coding opened a new, state-of-the-art factory in Liverpool City Region yesterday.
Domino Printing Sciences is relocating its fluids manufacturing to a new 172,000 sq ft (16,000 sq m) advanced factory on the Senate Business Park.
The new factory will also result in the creation of 19 new jobs over the next nine months, bringing the total workforce to 88.
Nigel Bond, Domino chief executive said: “This new facility, located less than a mile from our previous factory, will accommodate the expansion of our fluids manufacturing capacity in line with growing demand, including a wider range of products and greater volumes.
“Not only will this meet our customers’ rapidly changing requirements, but also enable them to be even more responsive and competitive within their own marketplaces.
“Very importantly, this significant global investment underlines our ongoing commitment to a presence in Liverpool, continuing as the epicentre of our fluids business as it has for the last 35 years.”
The new facility is five times larger than the previous factory, is arranged on three floors and includes:
- The manufacturing area
- Quality assurance labs
- Dedicated customer training and seminar facilities
- Administration offices and conference facilities,
- As well as ten-metre high warehousing space.
Nigel Bond, Domino chief executive, said: “Domino has had a long association with Liverpool, establishing our primary ink and consumables factory in the local area back in 1984.
“Our employees in Liverpool have done a wonderful job since that time, so it was never in question where we would build this new facility; the only question was could we find the right site within a radius from our existing buildings, to keep all the skills and the team together.
“This operation here in Liverpool is absolutely critical to the success of Domino, not only in terms of sales revenue.”
