News: Bluetree branches out with Barclays


Fast-growing print experts, Bluetree Design & Print Ltd, has secured financial backing to enable them to grow into new premises across Rotherham.

Established in 1989, the Templeborough firm evolved from a traditional screen printer to a predominantly digital offering. It moved onto the Ignite @ Magna development in 2007 and in 2012 the business merged with instantprint.co.uk to provide a multi-channel offering.

The company has announced expansion plans and a move to new headquarters with funding from Barclays and the Sheffield City Region Growth Fund Programme.

The new funding has enabled the business to move to Brookfields Park in Manvers, that will become its new headquarters. The 86,900 sq ft site will allow the business to increase production capacity and offer a wider range of products and services. The Sheffield office of Knight Frank recently announced that Unit A, the former home of DBC Foodservice, had been acquired. The 86,000 sq ft unit had been empty since DBC entered administration in 2012.


Adam Carnell, managing director of Bluetree Design and Print (pictured, right), said: "Bluetree Design and Print were successful in applying for a grant from the Sheffield City Region Regional Growth Fund Programme which is administered on behalf of the City Region by Sheffield City Council, which along with the new funding from Barclays has assisted with the acquisition of the new site and this will provide the space for us to relocate all our business into one building.

"The increased space will help us fulfil our long term goals of increasing market share in the UK and by giving us the ability to continue the strong growth we are currently achieving."

Bluetree Design and Print now employs over 150 staff locally but is anticipating this will increase over the coming months with an increase in output. The company has doubled their turnover in the previous two years and with this exciting expansion they are hoping to replicate the same growth over the next three years.

Sam Drummond, Barclays relationship director (pictured, left), said: "We've been working with Adam and his team for the last 12 months and it's great that we've been able to support further expansion plans for the business. Bluetree Design and Print is a superb business that is supporting businesses of all sizes across the UK and the management's ambitious growth plans are testament to their hard work and success."
