Soap Media is delighted to announce the opening of its brand new headquarters, situated on Glover’s Court, Preston. As a result of their continued success and bubbling expansion, the company can now stretch its legs in a state of the art three-story office building, formerly the Victorian Lambert Brothers’ printing press.

The project that brought the building to its former glory was born out of the scheme to improve Winckley Square and the surrounding areas, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The design combines sleek, contemporary architecture with exposed original brickwork and timber roof trusses, and the authentic signage has been reinstalled in the first floor office as a nod to the impressive history of the building.

The company previously occupied The Watermark on Ribbleton Lane, but desired a more permanent space they could call home. The owners originally thought they’d settle in the bustling city of Manchester, but with the recent investment and regeneration of the space, decided to take the plunge in Preston city centre. The new location is a great benefit to staff with immediate access to the city’s amenities and transport links.

Adam and Markerle are excited to own their own property within the up-and-coming Preston city centre area, and hope that the move will bring about an inspiring atmosphere for their employees and attract new, fresh talent.

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.”

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.”
