The expansion will open up a “significant number” of jobs in production at the new site

The expansion is the latest in a £20m investment at its South Yorkshire print production facility and will provide a number of local job opportunities.

Having based operations at Manvers in Rotherham for the last four years, the online print company will extend its manufacturing facility into a neighbouring unit.

The addition of the new site will take the total floor space from 86,900sq ft to 145,000sq ft, leaving room for predicted continued growth into 2020.

In the decade it has been operating, the firm has grown its offering of flyers, booklets, business cards and posters, with the sale of business cards rising by 195% over the last five years.

We’re pleased to have secured a neighbouring facility so we can continue to thrive in Rotherham with our dedicated, passionate workforce

“We’re in an exciting position with the business continuing to grow very rapidly year on year as more consumers choose to purchase their printed product online,” says James Kinsella, co-founder of instantprint.

“We’re pleased to have secured a neighbouring facility so we can continue to thrive in Rotherham with our dedicated, passionate workforce.”

The £3.5m renovation on the newly purchased facility at Brooksfields Park in Manvers is due to begin in May and is expected to run through to early 2020.

The business, which currently employs more than 200 people, is looking to fill various production roles at the expanded premises.

Kinsella adds: “Our investment provides opportunities for both instantprint and for people in the region wanting to work for an exciting and growing business. As a result, we’re able to create a significant amount of job opportunities in the local area.”
