Says Swain, “Many people have fond memories of working at Giltbrook over the years and the new Giltbrook will be a vibrant and exciting space with great functionality and a modern infrastructure that will allow creativity to flourish. It will also be a cost effective option, and we look forward to a long and fruitful working relationship with CPL and Finishing Post on this project.
