Creative Solutions, Axminster

Creative Solutions needed more space for its growing high-tech print and display business. It required a new production facility plus space for sales, design and admin with room to spare for future expansion.

Axminster Property facilitated a move into space freed up by Axminster Tools and has continued to work with Creative Solutions as it has expanded while delivering a sound long term tenant for its pension fund investors.

Creative Solutions is the UK’s leading print and display specialist. Its experienced Axminster based team uses the best quality print and design options to deliver a diverse array of projects in a timely and efficient manner.

Utilising cutting edge technology, its mission is simple: to help clients put on a bigger, better, brighter display. Members of the team are passionate about what they do; all the way from initial consultation through to design and production, each job is given the same care and attention whatever the size – no job is too big and none too small.

The range of products available from Creative Solutions is vast and includes banners, A-boards, pavement signs, roller banner stands, magnetic maps, vehicle graphics, vinyl wrapping (even an RAF helicopter!), window graphics and much, much more…the list is endless!

As with all successful and growing businesses, the issue of space is paramount and Creative Solutions had reached a point where a move into larger premises was a necessity. The company’s requirements were simple – a building big enough to house the production facility plus room for sales, design and administrative offices. The provision of loading facilities and car parking would be an added bonus.

A further dynamic was the need to find somewhere with flexibility for expansion as the business and range of products grew and diversified to meet the demands of the market.

At the time Creative Solutions was looking to relocate, a local tool supplier was vacating a two-storey building on the Millwey Rise Industrial Estate in Axminster. The property division of Axminster Tools Ltd, later to become independent as Axminster Property Ltd, negotiated with Creative Solutions to facilitate its move into the premises. These premises not only met all the company’s requirements at the time but also offered the opportunity to expand in the future.

The verdict

Axminster Property continued to work with Creative Solutions to support its long term goals whilst at the same time ensuring the best return on investment for the pension fund owners of the property. The aim for the investors was to secure a tenant with a sustainable business that was capable of committing to a long lease and that would see future growth. Creative Solutions was such a tenant and it was not long before an extension was built onto the property, future proofing not only Creative Solutions but also Axminster Property’s investor clients.
