Tradeprint, a print solutions provider based in Dundee, recently welcomed local MP Chris Law to its new expanded facility which has doubled its operational space from 20,000 to 40,000sq ft.

Chris Law is the MP for Dundee West and is part of the Scottish National Party (SNP) having occupied the seat since 2015, being re-elected in both 2017 and 2019, the latter of which he received over 22,000 votes.

Law shown the scale of Tradeprint’s operations as well as the impact of its continued investment in the city of Dundee with the company having supported job creation, retention, and skills development in the local community.

The visit also gave Tradeprint the chance to highlight the challenges of rising energy costs and new legislations such as the Plastic Packaging Tax. 


The company stressed that innovative solutions are needed to mitigate the cost impact of legislation as well as strategic adaptation from the industry to deal with the recent EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR) and Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). 

Tradeprint says: “Hosting Chris Law at Tradeprint was not only an opportunity to showcase our recent advancements and growth but also a platform to discuss the future of the printing industry and its role in the local economy of Dundee.” 

Also highlighted was Tradeprint’s mission to achieve net zero by 2040, explaining that it's actively exploring various funding sources including government incentives and green finance options.

The company adds: “We are grateful for [Law’s] support and interest in the challenges we face as an industry, and we look forward to continuing our dialogue with local leaders to develop a more sustainable, innovative, and resilient print sector.
