What attracted you to move or set-up your business in Greater Norwich?

  • When the business was originally founded, Panel Graphic rented two offices at Thorpe Road in Norwich. The company very quickly outgrew these offices and moved from the city centre to Greater Norwich and purchased a factory on the Loddon Business Park in 2000.

Steve has always maintained the need for a freehold site with the potential to expand the business.

Since 2000 Panel Graphic has expanded the original factory and acquired additional premises directly opposite the original site. The company has built an additional 6 Industrial Units, all of which are neighbouring the original factory.

Within 20 minutes from Norwich, Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth The Loddon Business Park is the perfect location for the business.
