FFEI to move into new multi-million pound facility

FFEI is to move into a new facility for its product development and manufacturing operations in Hemel Hempstead, UK.

The fully-owned location, nicknamed The Cube, includes a bespoke, modern fit out, and will see it move from its currently leased location.

FFEI will make an investment of more than £2 million in the project, and the transition to its new location will begin in early July once the building fit out is complete. The existing facility will be run in parallel for a short period to ensure a smooth transition and minimal impact on customers.

FFEI managing director Andy Cook said: ‘We are delighted to announce this investment, which underlines our commitment to the business. We have a lot of new products being developed both in our digital printing and life science businesses that need both flexible and modern facilities.

‘[This] will give the organization the environment it needs to ensure our on-going success.’

Cook added: ‘Building on the success of our inkjet label press, Caslon, we plan to introduce several new inkjet products later in the year, which required a major investment in our infrastructure. With our strong financial position we felt it was the right time to acquire a new building and position the company for growth.

‘With the success of our RealPro Workflow and packaging software products announced earlier this year, the next few months will be focused on modernising our infrastructure and launching these new digital printing devices. Alongside our market leading CtP product range, we expect a busy and exciting time for the organization.’
