HarperCollins will be moving to a new purpose-built warehouse and office facility in Robroyston, Glasgow, when the lease at its current nearby site expires in 2025, the firm has announced.
The firm has occupied a site in Bishopbriggs, 2.5 miles from its new facility, since 1973. It currently employs more than 400 people there, including its two distribution centres at the location, plus members of Collins Learning editorial in the reference and geo team, dictionaries, Leckie and some of the Revision and Home Learning team.
C.e.o. Charlie Redmayne said: “HarperCollins has a long and proud association with Glasgow. Having existed in the city for more than 200 years, we are excited to be making this long-term commitment to our people and to Scotland.
“We remain at the early stages of planning a move that will happen in 2025 and will engage with our employees and others as our detailed plans begin to take shape.
“While we are sad to be leaving Bishopbriggs where we have been for nearly 50 years, we look forward to our future in Robroyston, just 2.5 miles down the road. In the meantime, we continue to keep up the brilliant work that goes on every day at Bishopbriggs, particularly in our education and reference publishing and in the distribution of both our huge portfolio of titles and those of our third-party clients.”
