The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has announced a £7m Regional Selective Assistance grant to create more than 400 jobs at a new state of the art printing facility in Merseyside.
The DTI grant is in addition to a £115m investment by media services provider Avarto AG.
The facility in Speke is likely to be running at full capacity in early 2008.
Trade and industry secretary, Patricia Hewitt, said: "These new jobs will create opportunities not just for those employed at the plant, but for the rest of the area too. I am pleased that this project will also help increase and improve local skills."
