Proctor and Stevenson moves to Easton after £1.5million investment in The Old Printworks

Marketing and communications agency Proctor and Stevenson has moved offices following a major refurbishment of a former industrial printworks in Easton Road, Bristol.

The agency’s 65 staff have  moved to The Old Printworks in Easton Road following refurbishment which has taken a year and nearly £1.5 million of investment.

While the 11,000 sq ft offices have had a major renovation, many features of the building’s past history have been retained and recycled, to celebrate its character and pay tribute to the heritage of the area.

The move marks a new era for Proctors, which counts brands including BMW and Saudi Arabian Airlines among its clients, as it targets B2B businesses around the world. 

Roger Proctor, pictured, said: “What we’ve tried to do is create a space that works – an environment we can be proud of. Environment has been very much at the centre of our thinking with this building. A few years ago we were the first company in Bristol to have a hybrid and electric car policy. We have a cycle to work scheme, and now produce our own electricity, have installed living walls.

“We are the first business in Bristol and second in the country to have coated our building in CristalACTiV, which reduces pollution in the surrounding atmosphere.

“Overall, I think that it will change the ‘atmosphere’ of the business in a very positive way. It will create a very different impression for people who come and visit us. It’s enabling us to make a statement and positive environment for everyone.”

Peaches Golding, Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Bristol, pictured, said: “Proctors has been in existence for more than 39 years – longer than any design agency in the South West and one of just half a dozen in the UK with such longevity.

“Apart from running its business, the company has played an important role in designing strategy for the South West, advising government and sponsoring regional student design awards.

“With this highly sustainable redevelopment of this building in Easton it is breathing new life into the business community here. I congratulate all involved in the project and I wish you all the best for the next 39 years in your business.”
