Digital publisher trading spaces in Lancaster
Lancaster-based Nxtbook Media LLC is moving to 617 N. Prince St. in Lancaster next month.
Currently located at 480 New Holland Ave. in Lancaster, the publishing software company said the move will "create a more flexible and collaborative set of teams in a smaller space."
The company's new location is approximately 4,500 square feet, a reduction in size from its current location of 15,000 square feet.
Nxtbook Media said it doesn't need or use all of its current space, which is one reason why it's opting for a smaller building.
Before moving into the new Prince Street office, the company is making simple renovations that will take a few days to complete, company spokesman Matt Clement said. He declined to share the cost of leasing and renovating the new Prince Street office.
"We truly believe that this move will allow us to further our mission of creating innovative software that helps publishers and brands engage in a profound way," Nxtbook Media co-founder Roxanne Edwards said in a statement.
As it prepares to move, Nxtbook has started handing over its current offices in Urban Place to Stone Independent School. Stone is located at 43 N. Lime St. in Lancaster, right now. Representatives from the Stone Independent School were not immediately available for comment.
Plans are in the works to grow both the Nxtbook Media team and the NXT Creative team, a marketing arm of the company, over the coming years, Clement said, noting that the new office will have room for additional employees.
Founded in 2003, Nxtbook Media digitizes publications such as magazines, journals and catalogs. The company has 25 employees and works with vendors and teams in the U.S., South America, Canada, Europe, Africa and Asia.
"Technology is really moving at breakneck speed and readers are always looking to be wowed by a platform," Nxtbook Media CEO and co-founder, Michael Biggerstaff said in a statement. "With that in mind, we really need a place that lets us move at the speed of the software industry, while still letting us keep the core of who we are culturally."
