I was delighted to officially open the new Liverpool office for Hobs Exchange on Friday.
The new facilities, which sees 8,500 sq ft of production space and offices at Glacier Buildings at Brunswick Dock is a result of rapid expansion.
Hobs is an independent reprographics company, with a network of 29 branches and over 300 employees across the UK and Ireland. They cater for clients in the NHS, construction, legal, financial, manufacturing, energy and utilities sectors.
Hobs has had a long connection with Liverpool, having launched in School Lane in 1969. As well as the Harrington Road business, the company also has Liverpool locations in Fleet Street and a retail reprographics services business in Castle Street.
Hobs is an example of a thriving and expanding business, investing in Liverpool, which will have a positive effect on the local economy. During my visit I was impressed by the enthusiasm of the members of staff, who know how important their role is in contributing towards a successful business.
