New printplant in Engeland for The Wall Street Journal Europe

The UK will be hosting the Olympic Games in 2012. A consequence of this is that the government has imposed a Compulsory Purchase Order on all industrial activity around Bow Industrial Parc (near Stratford), where our UK printplant, Newsfax, is based. This means Newsfax has to vacate their premises. They started up a brandnew site in the neighborhood of Rainham. I was fortunate to witness the first printrun of The Wall Street Journal Europe at the new printplant.(picture 1: Rainham village)(picture 2: Newsfax printplant)(picture 3: Olympic Gates )
