LABELGRAPHICS plans to add up to 10 staff in the next year following a move to larger premises.

The whisky and wine label maker has increased its production capacity by relocating to an adjacent 50,000sq ft facility on Clydebank Business Park.

The company, founded more than 30 years ago by Alex Mulvenny Sr but now owned by Ohio-based Multi-Color Corporation, also purchased a further 40,000sq ft of land to "future proof" its operations.

The founder's son, also Alex, is now managing director. He said the move has allowed the firm to offer new digital printing services for customers such as Johnnie Walker, Chivas Regal and Jacob's Creek.

He said: "While our new facility raises our production capacity significantly by taking us from 30,000sq ft to 50,000sq ft, the fact we purchased sufficient land to expand by another 40,000sq ft, effectively future-proofs our position in Clydebank and signals our confidence in the potential for further significant growth."

The company already employs 100 people and Mr Mulvenny hopes to increase that while increasing turnover from £14 million to £20m in the next three to five years.

Mr Mulvenny added: "We have invested significantly in new capital equipment which allows us to offer customers innovative, high quality labelling solutions unavailable elsewhere in the UK.

"Our strategy is to progress to bigger and better things as part of the Multi-Color Group."

The move to the new site was funded through £1.8m of financial backing from Lloyds Banking Group and a £1.25m Regional Selective Assistance grant.
