Last Friday we held the grand opening of our new factory. It was a big milestone for us as a company and a real celebration of many years of hard work and reinvestment. As many of our readers will have seen over the last 18 months we have been able to transform our current site on Bourne to accommodate an additional 3000 square metre factory and a state of the art unique web press. Well over 100 visitors came to see the new factory and to have a hosted tour of our new 32pp press before the sound proofing goes on. We were delighted to welcome families, retired members of staff and people from the town throughout the day. The machine is soon to be up and running with paper trials being conducted next week with the final stages of training also taking place.
The highlight of our day was being able to present a cheque for £5000 to the Don't Lose Hope Cafe in Bourne. The new factory was opened in person by HM Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire Mr Toby Dennis who presented the cheque for the money raised by our sports and social team. We are incredibly proud to be able to support such a wonderful cause that really helps the children in our community and we look forward to how they get on in 2020!

As part of the celebrations in the evening we also hosted a charity fundraiser with darts player Leighton "Boom Boom" Bennett. The event itself was actually held in the new factory and was attended by employees both old and new. Though he is only 14 Leighton is taking the darts world by storm and we wish him every success for the future.
We would like to thank Leighton who ran the event brilliantly and Clark Catering who provided a superb meal that went down very well indeed!
