Ambitious digital agency Soap Media have moved their business into a former printing press, at Glovers Court in the heart of Preston.
The renovation of the premises, which were the former home for the Lambert Brothers’, was part of the scheme to improve Winckley Square and the surrounding areas. Money was made available for this by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The move is a significant one for Soap’s owners, who originally thought they’d would settle in Manchester, but were attracted to stay in Preston due to the recent investment and regeneration of the space.
Councillor John Swindells, deputy leader of Preston City Council said: “It’s very exciting to see a nineteenth century building originally built as a stables being revitalised and accommodating Soap Media, a company at the cutting edge of twenty first century Digital Marketing.”
Soap Media Managing director Markerle Davis added: “We sought a more central location, to put Soap even more in the centre of the action and improve access for our employees. We are always on the lookout for talented new staff with fresh ideas and creative attitudes to getting better results for our clients.”
