ENFIELD – Minuteman Press will move into the former Precision Camera and Video Repair building at 1 Anngina Drive by January, Michael Weber, who owns Minuteman Press with his wife, Lindsey, said.
The company bought the 8,150-square-foot industrial building at the corner of Anngina Drive and Moody Road for $382,750 [$382,500], the Sentry Commercial Real Estate services website says.
Minuteman Press is a printing company, now located in smaller, 1,500-square-foot quarters at 57  Hazard Ave., in the Stop & Shop plaza.
Weber said the move will give the company the space to do business the way he and his wife would like. The seven-person staff may grow by a position or two, he added.
In the current location, the area where engaged couples select wedding invitations is a small space where customers sit “with coffee makers above [copy machines around] their heads,” he said.
At the new building, the wedding invitation are will be a larger, quieter space where invitations can be selected in relative quiet and comfort, Weber said.
The Webers have operated their business at the Hazard Avenue site for 7 1/2 years.
Precision Camera and Video Repair Inc. in May eliminated 115 jobs at its headquarters and said it would close a portion of the three-building operation due to the lingering recession and budgetary constraints.
The company said that Precision Camera will remain based in Enfield and will maintain a major presence there to repair mostly professional grade photo equipment.
Precision Camera operates two large U.S. plants in el Paso, Texas, as well as a third in Chihuahua, Mexico. the Mexican plant in handles international business in both Mexico and Central America, while the El Paso area facilities handle business in the Western U.S.
