Leading on-demand and fulfilment company, Printful, is opening a new £2.6m fulfilment centre in Wolverhampton.
Printful is recognised as Latvia’s first ‘unicorn’ start-up and is now broadening its reach into the UK.
The new centre will create up to 50 jobs and allow Printful to provide local fulfilment and deliveries within the country in two business days.
Printful’s first facility was launched in California in 2017 and it currently operates nine in-house facilities globally, three of which are in Europe. Along with this expansion into the UK, another facility is also set to open in Poland.
Printful was founded by Lauris Liberts and Davis Siksnans in 2013. The idea for Printful emerged from a business that had already been launched by Mr Liberts called StartupVitamins which sold posters. When they were unable to find a suitable print on-demand drop shipping partner, the pair decided to start one of their own. In just eight years the company as grown to welcome over 1,800 staff members and reach revenues of $208m in 2020.
