A regional daily’s owners have put the building up for sale after deciding to search for a more modern and smaller home.
It is looking to relocate to a new home because the building is now too big for the needs of the company, following the closure of the printing press in 2008.
HTFP reported earlier this month that The Northern Echo is set to move from the site it has been based since being founded – after the owners of a shopping centre agreed to buy it as part of their expansion plans.
Managing director Simon Kennedy said: “Following the closure of the printing press in September 2008 the business is no longer tied to the Upper Mounts site in the way that it once was.
“The current building is now too big for the needs of the company and so this potential move is about relocating the business to more modern accommodation that is better suited to the needs of the business today and into the future.
“It is important to stress that the business remains totally committed to Northampton and to continuing to serve the town and surrounding area through our range of market leading print and online products.”
