FORTY Weston jobs have been saved after a print firm on the Oldmixon estate was snapped up by a national company.

Murodigital, based in Oldmixon Crescent, was established in the town some 25 years ago, and has built up a strong reputation within its specialist market.

The firm had become the UK's largest independent supplier of print and presentation equipment, working with big name industry partners such as Xerox, Powis Parker, Renz, Fujipla and Graphics Whizard.

However, the firm has this week announced it has been bought out by Midlands-based Zerographic Systems Limited.

The company has a big reputation across the north of the country, and sees the purchase of Murodigital as a chance to expand its Xerox business into the south.

Zerographic managing director Kevin Corbett told the Mercury the acquisition would be an 'exciting opportunity' for both firms.

Mr Corbett also offered assurances that all 40 staff will be retained, as Murodigital will be allowed to continue trading from its current base and keep its highly-regarded name.

He said: "Murodigital's extensive print production, finishing and document presentation solutions will both support and enhance the current Zerographic range.

"Murodigital has an excellent and long-standing reputation across a broad customer base, and this investment is a logical step towards expansion of our already successful core business."

"Murodigital will continue to operate under its own name, retaining its premises in Weston and all 40 staff.
