HarperCollins' moving from Bishopbriggs to a purpose-built facility in Glasgow



HarperCollins has announced that it will be relocating to a purpose-built facility in Glasgow.

The publisher employs around 500 staff across its supply chain, editorial and support functions in Bishopbriggs, where is has been based since 1973.

It will be moving to a new site in Robroyston in 2025, around 2.5 miles from its current Westerhill premises.

The company follows Aviva, which announced last year that it would be moving from Bishopbriggs to a new facility in Motherwell in the summer.

Charlie Redmayne, chief executive at HarperCollins, said: “We remain at the early stages of planning a move that will happen in 2025 and will engage with our employees and others as our detailed plans begin to take shape.

“While we are sad to be leaving Bishopbriggs where we have been for nearly 50 years, we look forward to our future in Robroyston, just 2.5 miles down the road.”

The company has a 200-year association with Glasgow, having been founded in the city by William Collins in 1819.

HarperCollins UK is a division of HarperCollins Publishers, the second largest consumer book publisher in the world, with operations in 17 countries.

HarperCollins publishes approximately 10,000 new books every year, in 16 languages, and has a print and digital catalogue of more than 200,000 titles.
