Inca reaffirms commitment to UK by opening £700,000 site
Wide format printing company Inca Digital has reaffirmed its dedication to the UK manufacturing industry by opening a £700,000 site.
The company started making the move to the 5,800 square-metre premises two weeks ago, however it was officially opened yesterday.
It boasts a purpose-built manufacturing space which includes clean rooms, warehouse and offices as well as training facilities.
The Cambridge company, which currently uses an average monthly volume of four machines, could now potentially use 12 or more if shift patterns are changed due to more space.
Inca chief executive Bill Baxter told printweek.com: "If you added up the floor space of our old site, then this one is only a little bigger, but this is a proper factory."
Chief Operating Officer, Masahiro Hashimoto added that he is delighted the company has been able to expand in such tough economic climes and said he wanted to thank the company's 200 workers for their hard work.
Although Inca currently export around 60 per cent of their machines outside the EU, Mr Baxter said there were no plans to take production outside the UK, saying the manufacturing process is not stable enough to put in a low cost country.
He also told whattheythink.com that the new developments were 'the start of an exciting new phase' for the company.
